Knee implants and other joint replacements can give patients relief from severe pain and renewed mobility. Unfortunately, some of these implants have caused pain and damage to the joint area. A defective knee implant often requires a patient to have revision surgery, and a significant recovery period. If you believe that you have been harmed by a defective knee implant, our defective knee implant attorneys can help.
Compensation for Defective Knee Implant
Defective knee implants can cause severe pain and require revision surgery. After revision surgery there is a significant recovery period which involves physical therapy and time off work. Defective knee implants can also cause damage to the surrounding tissues, creating problems which can be even worse than the original implant was meant to correct.
Revision surgery and recovery can be expensive and painful. Some patients never return to the level of function and mobility that they would have enjoyed had the original implant been in proper working order.
Compensation for defective knee implants can include:
- Medical expenses and future medical expenses
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation
- Special equipment
- Lost income
- Future lost income
- Lost earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
