Claims for Defective Medical Devices

While all situations involving defective products should be taken seriously, few have consequences as far-reaching as situations where a medical device is defective. Unfortunately, defective or dangerous medical devices are not an unheard of occurrence. Product liability claims involving medical devices could refer to products such as defibrillators, stents, implants, or anything else that can be used by a medical professional to treat a disease, illness, or injury. If you are in a situation such as this, do not hesitate to contact Lexington Injury Attorney James Vaught of James Vaught Law Offices, PLLC today. He is here to help you.

Defective Knee & Hip Implants

In recent years, the dangers of knee and hip replacement devices have become increasingly clear. There have been many companies who have manufactured such products (such as Stryker Orthopedics, Zimmer, Biomet, and DePuy Orthopaedics), but the one thing that remains the same is the danger they pose to consumers.

Some of the most common side effects of defective knee and hip implants:

  • Debonding of the joints;
  • Pain in the area;
  • Nerve, tissue, and muscle damage;
  • Malalignment of the components;
  • Required revision surgery; and
  • Increased metal ion levels.
