DePuy Elbow Injury Lawyers

Attorneys Helping Victims of Dangerous Medical Devices in North Carolina and South Carolina

It has been several decades since television audiences were first introduced to the idea of a “bionic man” – a former astronaut who was “rebuilt” after being severely injured in a car accident. At the time, such an idea was considered science fiction. Nowadays, however, implants to rebuild joints such as elbows, hips, and knees are commonplace. Unfortunately, not everyone who receives an artificial joint replacement has the “bionic man” outcome that they expected. In fact, some patients have suffered serious, debilitating injuries after being implanted with devices such as the DePuy elbow prosthesis. The North Carolina and South Carolina product liability lawyers at Grimes Teich Anderson can handle DePuy elbow injury lawsuits.

Components of the DePuy Synthes prosthesis system can reportedly loosen post-operatively, requiring revision surgery in some patients. Because of the potential for the stem-bone interface to loosen, a product recall has been issued for the DePuy elbow replacement system. Patients who have experienced a loosening of the implant may experience considerable pain, as well as bone loss, reduced range of motion, fracture, and soft tissue damage. As is the case with other defective orthopedic products, people who have suffered DePuy elbow injuries have a right to seek compensation for their injuries via a product liability lawsuit.

Litigation Based on DePuy Elbow Injuries

Just as negligent motorists are held accountable for injuries caused by careless driving, entities that manufacture, sell, or otherwise participate in the distribution process of a defective or unreasonably dangerous product – including a medical device or drug – can be held accountable by people who are injured by their actions. Products may be “defective” in several ways. These include a defective design, in which the product’s overall design is inherently unsafe. There may also be a manufacturing defect, in which only a single product, or perhaps a few products, are affected due to a mishap in the usual procedure for making or assembling the product. In still other cases, there may be a failure to warn. This is when adequate safety warnings or instructions are not included with the product, even though the manufacturer knows or should know of certain risks that it poses and that may not be obvious to consumers. In many cases, experts may be retained by each side to opine on whether or not any of these defects applied to a product. The jury then may need to determine which expert it finds to be more credible.

Injury lawyers in North Carolina or South Carolina who are able to prove a case of product liability may be able to recover compensation for their clients for past and future medical expenses associated with the injuries caused by the defective product, lost wages and loss of future earning capacity caused by the injuries, and compensation for pain and suffering.

Get Started on a Product Liability Claim Based on a DePuy Elbow Injury

If you or a loved one has been hurt by a DePuy elbow implant or another defective product, such as a Medtronic Infuse bone graft, it is important to talk to a lawyer as soon as possible. Product liability claims are controlled by both a statute of limitations and, in some instances, a statute of repose. These statutes mandate that the case must be filed by a certain date, or else a plaintiff is deemed to have waived his or her right to compensation.

Except for Employment Law Cases, Attorney's fees are a percentage of the entire recovery and will be deducted before other expenses. In addition to the fee in these cases, Client will be responsible for litigation expenses, which will either be deducted from the recovery or paid by the client. Some Employment Law Cases may be handled on a contingency fee basis and others handled on an hourly basis, where the client is billed for the hours spent on the case. Based on our experience, we will advise you of the most appropriate fee arrangement in Employment Law cases.
