What Can I Do If I Was Injured?
These periprosthetic joint infections can occur months or even years after
the initial implant surgery and tragically, can affect areas of the body
other than the initial site of the joint replacement. In recent years,
patients who have developed severe Bair Hugger joint infections have filed
lawsuits against the manufacturer 3M.
The lawsuits allege that 3M was aware of the potential risk of periprosthetic
joint infection, yet failed to properly inform the public. If you or a
loved one is experiencing any symptoms of a perisprosthetic infection
following joint replacement surgery, please see a medical professional
immediately. You should also speak with a product liability attorney.
If you or a loved one suffered a serious infection following knee or hip
replacement surgery that required additional hospitalization or surgery,
IV antibiotics or removal of the implant or amputation, you may be able
to seek compensation. If you would like to speak with one of our attorneys

It is in your best interest to act quickly. There is a time limit in each
state for filing
injury claims, known as the statute of limitations. If a claim is not filed against
the manufacturer, marketers, retailers and healthcare providers before
the statute of limitation expires, an injured party will not be able to
bring a claim against those liable for their injuries.
