When to Seek Legal Advice?
At Valente Law Group we are knee replacement lawyers in Maryland. We have successfully handled many cases for individuals who have suffered life-altering knee complications. Our lawyers handle knee replacement lawsuits on a contingency fee basis, meaning that there are no upfront fees to hire our attorneys.
If you have suffered knee replacement complications, our lawyers in Maryland can help. Knee replacement surgery is a typical surgery performed in the U.S., but even routine procedures like total knee replacements carry serious complications. Our lawyers know that knee replacements performed on older, more fragile patients have difficulties reaching as high as 20%.
Complications in Knee Replacement Surgery
One of the most frequent complications related to knee replacements which our lawyers have handled, is infection.
Knee replacement infection is a severe complication of surgery that can lead to life-threatening injuries. Knee replacement infections caused by microorganisms, such as bacteria, enter the body through open surgical wounds or grafts.
Surgeries should terminate the surgery when knee replacement infections occur. These infections can cause a series of symptoms, including redness or swelling around the knee replacement, knee replacement pain that gets worse, drainage, fever, lethargy, fatigue, chills, appetite loss, nausea, and vomiting.
Another complication our lawyers have handled in their cases is knee replacement dislocation. Knee replacement dislocation can occur when your replacement slips out of place, often during exercise or physical therapy. A surgeon must monitor knee replacement to ensure it stays in the proper position.
Successful Knee Replacement Cases
The knee replacement lawyers at the Valente Law Group have successfully represented clients who have suffered knee damage due to medical negligence. Knee replacement surgeons face many complex risks, including infection, metal allergies, blood clots, and deformities. Knee replacement surgeries can lead to long-term complications, including chronic pain and discomfort.
“I was in excruciating pain when I approached the Valente Law Group,” said one of our clients. “My knee replacement was a disaster, and I didn’t think anyone would listen to my story, but the lawyers at the Valente Law Group listened and understood.”
