Defective hip replacements cause more pain and suffering
There are many different types of medical devices that can cause serious issues if they are defective. The two most common defective devices we deal with are hip replacements and transvaginal mesh.
Defective hip replacements could render hip replacement surgeries completely ineffective, making all the work you put into rehab after your injury worth nothing. The defective devices may even cause you to suffer additional pain or infections. One common defect is that the oil in the devices does not complete its function of fusing the product to the bone. This means your device never fully installs. The most common issues are with hip replacements made by manufacturers DePuy, BioMet and Stryker Orthopaedics.
The U.S. Food & Drug Administration has a number of concerns about these medical devices. If you’ve received a defective hip implant, consult with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible to explore your legal options.
Issues related to transvaginal mesh
Many women opt for transvaginal mesh surgery to treat a pelvic organ prolapse (POP) condition with vaginal support. In cases where the mesh is defective, victims could suffer adverse effects, such as pain, infection, bleeding, erosion through the vaginal tissue and urinary problems.
Unfortunately, many patients do not discover that their products are defective until it is too late. Manufacturers are required to issue recall notices when they discover defects in their products, but these recalls are often under-publicized. Our Sevierville lawyers hold manufacturers accountable for their defective products and seek punitive damages against those companies that provide such products and fail to give proper notice of recalls to doctors and patients.
