When Orthopedic Replacement Surgery Goes Awry in Des Moines, IA

Orthopedic replacement surgeries represent a second chance for many of our clients. Years and years of pain from wear and tear on hips, knees or other joints can end with properly installed orthopedic devices.

Legal Help For Iowa Residents Victimized By Negligence

At Lawyer, Lawyer, Dutton & Drake, L.L.P., we represent Iowa residents when the surgery fails to alleviate the physical pain. While they may have received workers' compensation benefits before, the subsequent surgery to get them back to work qualifies them for additional benefits for permanent damage from:

  • Errors occurring during surgery
  • The wrong prosthetic device was implanted
  • Injuries to surrounding organs, tissues or nerves

In some cases, we can pursue damages against the manufacturer of the device. These types of product liability claims sometimes involve more than one defendant.

The complexity of these cases requires attorneys experienced in this specific area of law, as it combines elements of workers' compensation and product liability. The three partners at Lawyer, Lawyer, Dutton & Drake, L.L.P., each have 35 years of experience representing clients and evening the odds they face after an accident.
