Clearinjury is looking into hip and knee infection lawsuits on the basis of reports from patients who are battling serious infections after undergoing certain procedures for their hips or knees. According to the reports, these infections occurred during the course of the surgeries carried out for the replacement of their hip or knee. Sometimes, additional surgeries are required in order to correct these infections. In certain severe cases, the hip/ knee implants have to be replaced if it is not possible to treat the infection.
Symptoms of Hip and Knee Infection
• Pain and suffering
• Swelling or inflammation
• Wound drainage
• Fever and chills
Among the hip and knee infections that have been reported, as much as 50 percent are Staphylococcal infections. Of these, approximately 8 percent are caused by staphylococcus aureus, which is not only very serious but also difficult to treat. If the infection caused by Staphylococcus aureus is not treatable, amputation may be the only option left for the patient.
There has been an exponential increase in hip and knee replacements as more and more of “baby boomers” approach old age. As a result, the number of hip and knee replacement complaints and failures are also on the rise. Following the recall of hip and knee replacement products in 2005, a large number of patients are filing hip and knee infection lawsuits, claiming that the medical devices used have been defective.
