Hip and Knee Infection Lawsuits
Brent Coon and Associates is investigating knee/hip Infection lawsuits after reports of patients suffering from dangerous infections after knee or hip procedures. There are reports that these infections are occurring during a hip or knee replacement surgery. These infections, in some cases are causing additional surgeries for the patients to correct the problem.

The symptoms of infection from a hip or knee replacement surgery include: Pain, Swelling, Wound Drainage, Fever and Chills, Fatigue. Approximately half of the knee and hip infections are staph infections. 8% of the infected hip and knee’s are staphylococcus aureus.
