Defective Orthopedic Implants
In recent years, a steadily increasing number of medical products have been found to be defective. These products — especially those in the field of orthopedics — are subject to recalls or severe regulatory restrictions due to harmful side effects, and these regulatory actions can increase the likelihood of an injured victim obtaining compensation from the manufacturer. Many defective orthopedic implant actions seek damages from large national corporations with vast legal resources and financial strength. For an individual victim, such a lawsuit can be extremely daunting without an experienced product liability lawyer.
Proven Advocacy In Complex Orthopedic Implant Cases
The accomplished lawyers at Volkema Thomas, LLC, have extensive experience in product liability cases arising from defective orthopedic implants, such as DePuy hip replacements and Durom cup joints. Our attorneys are experienced in the intricacies of product liability and the arguments and strategies necessary to represent clients in complex, high-exposure claims. We will work closely with you to develop and implement a strategy tailored to your needs, conducting an early case evaluation to determine if your matter is best suited for trial or settlement.
We have a successful track record of helping clients prove liability and obtain compensation for their injuries, which can include medical costs, lost wages, diminished earning capacity, permanent disability or disfigurement, and pain and suffering. If a manufacturer or seller of a defective implant knew that it was dangerous, but intentionally failed to correct the defect or warn consumers, an injured victim may be able to receive a punitive damage award as well.
Our attorneys are also equipped to handle product defect claims arising from pharmaceutical drugs, such as Avandia-related litigation.
