As American consumers learn of the tendency for DePuy knee replacement systems to fail prematurely, sometimes in the first year, our DePuy knee attorneys have seen a significant rise in the number of inquiries regarding who qualifies to file a DePuy knee defect lawsuit. You should always consult an attorney in relation to your individual DePuy knee claim.
Persons who have experienced early failure of a DePuy knee and who have been forced to undergo complex revision surgery are seeking clarification of the qualifications required to participate in a DePuy knee defect lawsuit. Our law firm offers free, no-obligation, confidential consultations to anyone who feels they may have a claim, but we have outlined the basic qualifications in this section. In general, these are factors that are considered in each DePuy knee lawsuit claim.
For persons and family members of persons who meet these qualifications, it is likely you will be eligible to file a DePuy knee lawsuit. There are multiple reasons to file a claim. First, DePuy knee lawyers believe individuals who have suffered from early DePuy knee failure and required revision surgery may be eligible for compensation for the expense of medical treatment, pain, suffering, and loss associated with DePuy knee defects. More meaningful than that to some is the opportunity to hold a large corporation accountable for patient safety and dishonest business practices. Critics say DePuy waited far too long to issue its massive hip recalls, causing thousands of persons to be implanted with faulty devices. Some patients experiencing early DePuy knee failure worry the same circumstances may play out again.
