DePuy Knee Replacement

The DePuy Attune knee replacement is experiencing an unusually high rate of early failure, causing serious harm to some of its recipients. Our product liability and defective medical device attorneys are investigating lawsuits on behalf of patients who’ve received a DePuy Attune Knee replacement system and have since suffered complications. DePuy’s knee replacement system has been linked to debilitating injuries in its recipients, many of which require revision surgery to remove or replace the implant. Patients have reported suffering pain from bearing weight, effusion (production and leaking of fluids in the knee) and a decreased range of motion, all within two years of their procedures. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms after receiving a defective medical device, contact us today for a free consultation and legal advice. Symptoms of defective DePuy Knee Replacements include:

  • Implant loosening and instability in the knee joint
  • Unusual swelling around the joint (lining becomes inflamed, fluid builds up)
  • Persistent pain (constant throbbing or pain, especially when in motion)
  • Warmth or heat in the knee (normal post-surgery, but if it continues it could be a failed implant)

Hernia Mesh

Lawsuits involving hernia mesh medical devices claim the products are failing at a rate higher than expected, and causing additional surgeries, infections, bowel obstruction, organ damage, scar tissue and chronic pain. One of the big differences between using a mesh product and using sutures is that a mesh can migrate (move) or shrink, and then cause bowel perforations (holes or tears), organ damage, obstructions, and additional surgeries. Several hernia mesh products have been defectively designed and are causing unnecessary repairs and injuries that would not have occurred if a sutures or other medical equipment had been utilized. Contact our personal injury attorneys today if you’ve experienced complications from hernia mesh or mesh-related medical product. The following are the most predominant mesh-related side effects:

  • Perforated intestines
  • Perforated bowels
  • Intestinal fistulae (an abnormal passage/connection between two organs)
  • Bowel obstruction/resection
  • Peritonitis (Inflammation of the abdominal wall membrane)
  • Abdominal wall tear
  • Abscesses
  • Sepsis
  • Ingrown mesh (into the abdominal wall, intestine, or other organs)
  • Organ puncture
  • Hernia recurrence
  • Chronic pain
  • Infection
