When Hip Replacement Surgery Goes Wrong
For many people, hip replacement surgery is a much-needed relief from the pain of hip joint deterioration caused by osteoarthritis, inflammatory arthritis, injury or other conditions. A successful partial or total hip replacement surgery can restore mobility and provide a new lease on life. Unfortunately, not all patients experience these results. Some are left even worse than before. All-too-often, this is caused by a medical professional’s negligence.
At The Townsley Law Firm in Lake Charles, our attorneys are committed to holding surgeons and other medical professionals accountable when hip replacement surgery errors have a devastating impact on a patient’s life. We pursue full compensation to cover medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other costs.
Were You The Victim Of Hip Surgery Malpractice?
Did you suffer from a destructive post-surgery infection? Following your hip replacement surgery, did you learn that your legs were no longer the same length? Was your hip replacement re-done one or more times without clear explanation, seriously impacting your life? While hip surgery and all surgery comes with risks, if you have reason to believe that an error was made or someone on the operating team or medical staff acted wrongly, you have the right to discuss the matter with a trusted medical malpractice lawyer at our law firm.
Our experience means we can help to identify what exactly went wrong, if anything. Working with medical experts as necessary, we will investigate your case with care. We will get you answers, and if indeed someone acted negligently, we will take swift action.
Problems With Hip Implants
In addition to handling claims of medical negligence, our attorneys also handle defective medical device claims. There have been many instances of hip implants being the source of the problem post-surgery. Many have been recalled and replaced. We believe that the manufacturers of defective hip joint implants should be held accountable when their products cause harm to patients who were seeking and hoping for help.
