Plaintiff Required Up to 14 Surgeries After Implant Broke
According to the plaintiff’s attorneys, his implant broke in 2010 because a laser weakened it during manufacturing. His injuries from the reported implant failure required up to 14 surgeries, and caused him to suffer a number of infections and dislocations.
His lawsuit alleged that the laser etchings on his implant compromised its durability and led to its failure only three years after having been inserted. After deliberation, the jury found that the implant failure was caused by a manufacturing error as alleged in the man’s lawsuit.
Injured Patients May Be Entitled to Compensation.
Patients who suffer complications after being fitted with a hip implant may be entitled to compensation for damages resulting from an injury, including past and future medical expenses, loss of income or ability to work, caretaking expenses, and pain and suffering.
If a patient dies after suffering complications from a hip implant, family members may be able to pursue compensation for the wrongful death of their loved one. Wrongful death compensation can be based on medical expenses attributable to the injury that caused the loved one’s death, conscious pain and suffering of a loved one prior to death, loss of relationship or financial support from a loved one, and pain, suffering, and mental anguish resulting from the loss of a loved one.
