The Salazar Law Firm Shoulder Replacement Lawsuit

For the individuals who endure extraordinary joint pain or a constrained scope of shoulder movement, a popular corrective solution is shoulder replacement surgery. Those with incapacitating shoulder injuries that can’t be dealt with by more moderate strategies regularly turn to the utilization of a shoulder replacement device for relief, in light of guarantees of expanded capacity and reduced pain. Be that as it may, when patients are embedded with a faulty replacement device, it can bring about exacerbated pain, rising restorative and medical costs, and the requirement for remedial surgery. As of late, replacement devices have been affirmed to cause extra wounds in patients, including noteworthy bone loss, precariousness, weakness, and unexplained agony.

When you undergo revision surgery because of a faulty shoulder replacement device is burdensome for both doctors and patients, who must now face the task of addressing additional complications brought on by the faulty device. At The Salazar Law Firm, our lawyers fight endlessly for those who have fallen victim to a flawed shoulder replacement device that has caused additional injury, or necessitated corrective surgery.

Faulty Replacement Devices

Patients and specialists take note of that imperfectly designed shoulder replacement products have led to the devices failing soon after being embedded, as opposed to the corrective solution to shoulder pain that is publicized. In specific cases, the metal-on-metal design of some replacement devices has led to metal poisoning, bone and tissue damage, and implantation failure. Insufficient surgical recreation of a joint or body part can show from numerous points of view, including:

  • Metal toxicity released into body
  • Bone and tissue damage
  • Component erosion
  • Dislocation or insecurity of replacement device due to faulty design

Correcting the damage of a poorly designed replacement device may require revision surgery and additional treatment, as well as removing the implant altogether.
