New Hampshire Knee Replacement Lawsuit Attorneys
Proudly Helping Clients Pursue Fair Compensation
At Shaheen & Gordon, P.A., we know firsthand that knee replacement surgeries can go wrong, leaving patients with serious injuries that can impact their day-to-day lives. While hundreds of thousands of patients go under the knife each year for total knee replacement surgeries, tens of thousands of defective implant devices that have been recalled by manufacturers still remain in patients. Some of these defects increase the risk of complications that require additional surgeries, pain and suffering, or even permanent disability. Even if a knee replacement device has not been recalled, certain knee implants and surgical devices have been linked to higher numbers of complications, including serious joint infections after surgery.
If you or a loved one have experienced health complications caused by a defective knee replacement implant, you might be entitled to compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering. Please reach out to Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. to speak to our compassionate legal team about your options under the law so we can devise a strong legal strategy to pursue the compensation you deserve.
