Defective Knees Litigation Update

Onder Law continues to investigate claims arising out of defective knee replacements. At the forefront of this litigation are the DePuy Attune knees and the Exactech knees. However, we also continue to investigate the Arthex, B. Braun Aesculap, Stryker Triathlon, Zimmer Personas, and Smith & Nephew knees as well.

The issue with these knee replacements is simple but often devastating to the recipients’ quality of life: they are failing much earlier than expected. While patients have been led to believe that these knee replacements will last them approximately 15 year, many have found that they are failing only a few years or even just a few months after implantation. This early failure then requires patients to undergo painful revision surgery, leaving them laid up and recuperating for long periods of time that they were expecting to use enjoying their newfound mobility due to the knee replacement.

If you have had a problem with your knee implant necessitating revision surgery, we would urge you to call us to discuss your particular case and the specific knee replacement product involved. Many of these litigations are proceeding nicely with hopeful signs of early resolution and we would hate for anyone to miss out on the opportunity to win the compensation they deserve for being deceived by these companies.
