Knee Replacement Implant Lawyers in Oklahoma City

Representing People Injured by Defective Knee Replacement Systems

Knee replacement systems and implants are meant to last at least 15 years on average. Some should last for the rest of the patient’s life without complications. However, in recent years, tens of thousands of knee replacement devices have been recalled by several manufacturers or flagged as unsafe by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), mostly for failing earlier than expected.

If you or a loved one have been injured due to a defective knee replacement implant, or if you will require revision surgery to replace a defective knee implant, Fulmer Sill in Oklahoma City wants to hear from you. Our attorneys can provide legal counsel and courtroom representation to people who have suffered due to the unsafe designs of knee replacement devices made by various medical device manufacturers.

We can help with claims and lawsuits involving these defective knee replacement systems:

  • Zimmer NexGen Knee
  • DePuy Synthese Attune Knee Implant
  • Vega Knee System
  • And more

Let us know if you were injured by a defective knee replacement device. You could be owed compensation from the device manufacturer, and we would like to be the experienced legal team that fights for it on your behalf.

Defective Knee Replacement Symptoms

If you have a defective knee replacement device, you might not know it right away. For many people, the symptoms of a defect only begin months or years after initial implantation.

Pay attention for these symptoms, which could indicate a serious problem with your knee replacement system:

  • Instability on the affected leg
  • Stiffness or difficulty walking
  • Pain, swelling, or redness of the replaced knee
  • Osteolysis (bone weakening) diagnosis
  • Breaks or fractures in or near the knee
  • Requirement for revision surgery

Check If Your Knee Replacement Could Be Defective

In most cases of defective knee replacement devices, the defect derives from an issue with the design of the medical device. Specifically, different pieces of the knee replacement system fail to lock into place correctly or become loosened and disjointed. The design defects have caused thousands of cases of knee implants failing shortly after the implantation surgery when the device should have lasted about 15 or 20 years.

To see if your knee replacement device could be defective, you can use the FDA recall search system by clicking here. You can also check to see if you have received any notifications from your medical provider about possible defects or known recalls from the manufacturers.

What to Do If Your Knee Replacement is Defective

Has your knee replacement device been flagged as defective by the FDA or manufacturer? Start by talking to your doctor or medical provider about what to do next. They can advise you about the next medical steps to take, which will likely include a medical evaluation and a conversation about revision surgery if you have started to show symptoms caused by the knee implant’s failure.

After you have confirmed with your medical provider that your knee replacement device is unsafe or defective, call (405) 433-7414 to connect with Fulmer Sill in Oklahoma City. Our attorneys have the experience, knowledge, and resources to handle complex and hard-fought defective knee replacement claims and lawsuits.

You can depend on Fulmer Sill to help with your case by:

  • Investigating the circumstances of the knee replacement defect to determine liability; typically, product liability laws make the medical device manufacturer liable by default.
  • Working with medical experts to understand how your life and livelihood have been impacted by the defective device.
  • Calculating the compensation that should be given to you to pay for your damages and losses.
  • Filing a claim against the medical device manufacturer to demand compensation.
  • Attempting to negotiate a fair settlement on your behalf, so you can get the compensation you need without going to trial.
  • Litigating in court and fighting for what’s right if settlement negotiations are not successful because the defendant refuses to admit liability.

Compensation in Knee Replacement Defect Claims

How much compensation could you be owed if your knee replacement device is defective? The answer will be unique to your case and is based on a variety of factors. Our job as your OKC knee replacement defect attorneys is to figure out the full compensation owed to you.

Compensation in your knee replacement defect case could help pay for:

  • Medical costs related to replacing the defective knee replacement system.
