Hip & Knee Replacement Claims
Medical science has given us so many incredible and beneficial advances over the last few decades. Of these, hip and knee replacements have kept countless patients with joint issues mobile, independent, and active. However, these joint replacement products need to be up to the highest safety, durability, and sanitary standards to be truly safe for patients. When they are not—and yet are still released and promoted by manufacturers—patients in need are put at tremendous risk.
