Joint Replacement Claims Solicitors
There were 1.69 million joint replacements performed in the UK from 2003-2015 according to the National Joint Registry. The vast majority of these joints provide an increased range of movement and freedom from pain, but in some instances, the joint replacement surgery does not provide the expected results due to issues with the prosthesis. When this happens, the effects can be devastating. Loss of function and pain are the most common symptoms, but bone loss and other more serious symptoms can also happen.

Other types of joint replacement claims
There are a variety of types of defective joint implants that you may be able to make a claim for.
If you have had joint replacement surgery where the implant has broken down much sooner than expected, you may be eligible to claim.
Typical symptoms of joint implant failure include:
- Pain or aching in the joint and surrounding area;
- Reduced mobility; and
- Difficulty sleeping.
Over time, having a defective implant can lead to severe medical consequences including:
- The need for early or additional surgery;
- Metal particles from the implant causing pain, swelling or soft tissue damage;
- Loss of function after revision surgery; and
- Pain and stress.
