Surgical Implant Failure And Your Workers Comp Claim

Did You Need A Surgical Device Implant Due To Your On The Job Injury?

Did that Implant Fail? Was The Device Recalled? Does It Have FDA Warnings?

 

There are many surgical implants in class action litigation including:

  • Zimmer Nexgen Knee Replacement lawyers
  • DePuy ASR™ XL Acetabular System lawyers
  • DePuy ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System lawyers
  • Stryker ABG II Modular Stems lawyers
  • Stryker Rejuvinate lawyers
  • Metronic Infuse Bone Graft

If you had this implant and were covered by workers compensation but, the implant failed and you need a revision surgery bu workers comp is denying the claim or you settled on a disability payment you can consider joining the consolidated MDL litigation for these devices. Many of these already have settlement offers on the table or are in the negotiation and litigation stages. If there is a current settlement you may be able to get a settlement  payment for the revision surgery and pain and suffering for additional surgeries and rehabilitation. These devices were recalled due to a review of the adverse incident reports or too many pre mature failures and complications.

Lawsuits for injuries from a recalled or failed medical device  are different from workers  compensation and require that the  company being sued is at fault. In this case these are product liability, mass tort, lawsuits.

If you had an on the job injury and required one of these devices you must speak to one of our product liability lawyers to assess your claim
