DePuy Synthes Attune Knee Implant Problems

DePuy Synthes manufactured the Attune® Knee Implant with the goal of improving outcomes following total knee replacement surgery. Instead, the Attune knee has been linked to severe complications.

A recent study published in the Journal of Knee Surgery warned about an “unusually high rate of early failure of tibial components” due to poor bonding between the patient’s bones and the Attune knee implant.

The surgeons performed revision surgery on 15 people who had pain or problems walking within 2 years of receiving the Attune knee implant. They discovered loose components in all 15 patients and “encountered a high rate of debonding of tibial implant-cement interface,” with 21 complaints in the last two months alone.

What is the problem?

The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but we are not currently filing a DePuy Synthes Attune class action lawsuit. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits against DePuy Synthes for people who were injured by this knee replacement.

About Class Actions

Class actions are useful in specific circumstances — for example, when a store systematically overcharges shoppers to make money. One person files a lawsuit for everyone who has a legal claim. Everyone who has a claim joins the lawsuit and shares the payout.

Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action

Class actions sometimes have disadvantages for people with severe injuries, especially when those people have permanent disabilities or enormous medical bills. Even if compensation is awarded, they may have to share the payout with people who have less severe injuries.

Instead of a class action, our lawyers are filing individual lawsuits so we can focus on maximizing compensation for people who were severely injured by the DePuy Synthes Attune Knee Replacement. We hold device-makers accountable for selling defective knee implants.
