The last thing anyone needs when facing a surgery to replace the replacement is a hassle from the manufacturer about who is at fault for a defective replacement joint. Far too many people here in Tennessee and across the country are experiencing just that. Instead of cooperating, companies like Johnson & Johnson, dePuy, and Zimmer are trying to shift the focus of the blame from themselves to the doctors who performed the initial replacement surgeries. More and more frequently, allegations of medical malpractice are being seen as large corporations try and minimize their legal and financial liability. It is for this reason that it is crucial to have an experienced attorney on your side when facing this situation.
An attorney experienced in medical cases knows that preservation of evidence is crucial to the success of a case. Proper lines of communication with the physician need to be established and the right questions need to be asked in order to ensure that patients get the care they need without having to fight with companies whose pockets are much deeper than theirs. It is detrimental to the physical and mental well-being of patients when they have to worry about the burden of paying for a second replacement and not just concentrate on getting better.
