Medical device manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure that their products are safe for patients and that there are clear warnings regarding any potentially dangerous side effects. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries or wrongful death due to a defective or dangerous medical device, you may be able to bring a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer.
At Bruno & Bruno, we serve medical device and implant victims throughout the South Shore area from our New Orleans office and throughout the North Shore area from our Covington office. Our attorneys for medical implant recalls represent clients throughout Louisiana who have been affected by the following defective medical devices:
Defective Hip Implants
Hip replacement is a difficult surgery. Unfortunately, many patients have to undergo additional surgeries due to defective hip implants. Patients with defective hip implants have reported difficulty walking, hip pain and hip swelling. At Bruno & Bruno, we represent clients who have experienced symptoms of defective hip implants. We handle claims involving these and other defective hip implants:
- DePuy Orthopaedics Inc., ASR hip implant device
- Stryker Trident PSL and Hemispherical Acetabular hip replacement cups
- Zimmer Durom Cup
If you have received a hip implant and you are experiencing these symptoms, it is important to first speak with your doctor or hospital to find out if you received a recalled hip implant. If your model is covered under the product recalls, our lawyers can help you initiate a claim. We will protect your rights and help ensure that you receive the compensation you need for any medical treatment and lost wages due to your defective hip implant.
Defective Knee Implants
Patients expect their knee implants to last several years. However, defective knee implants may lead to significant pain, and patients may require revision surgery within the first two years after receiving the implant. At Bruno & Bruno, we represent clients who have experienced complications following knee replacement surgery. Our attorneys handle claims involving these and other defective knee implants:
- Smith & Nephew Oxinium Cementless knee implants
- Zimmer NexGen knee implants
- Stryker knee implants
If you are experiencing the symptoms of a defective knee implant, contact your doctor or hospital to find out the brand and model of your implant. Then give Bruno & Bruno a call at 504-525-1335 (800-966-1335 toll free). We will help you determine if you have a claim and, if so, help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
