Spokane, WA asked in Products Liability for Washington

Q: Do I have case if I had a artificial disc surgery and have not been able to work since 2009 because of the disc itself?

The disc is called the charite artificial disc. I was sold on it that it would fix everything. But it's been mostly lots of pain since I had the surgery and have not been able to work since I had it done. It also needs to come out and I need to get a fusion surgery. The revision surgery is super dangerous and just sounds terrified. So idk what to. Mostly just curious

A: A Washington attorney could advise best in accordance with state-specific laws, but your question remains open for two weeks. You describe not being sure of what to do. As a starting point, you could reach out to product liability attorneys to discuss. If they felt you could have the basis for a viable case, they could retrieve your records and review with medical professionals. Good luck
