Hip Replacement Lawsuit Center
If you’ve suffered harm resulting from the implantation of a defective replacement hip, you might have a case against the manufacturer of the device.
You’ll need to make a claim, though, and your time to do so is limited. Call us now and speak to one of our lawyers, at no cost or risk. We can determine promptly whether you have grounds for a lawsuit.
If you received a hip replacement device and suffered pain, swelling, reduced range of motion, or complete failure of your implant, then you might be entitled to compensation for your injuries, including out-of-pocket costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Don’t expect the manufacturer to volunteer to write you a check, though. You’ll need to demand what you deserve.
New research, and recent recalls from top hip manufacturers, reveal that certain hip replacements are dangerous, can cause injury and heavy metal poisoning, and may require removal and replacement surgery.
If your hip replacement has required removal or caused you pain, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical costs and your physical and emotional suffering.
What makes a hip defective?
Some replacement hips may have been defectively made, manufactured, or implanted, or may be made of materials that cause the hip to fail at a higher rate than it should—causing injury to the recipient of the hip and requiring costly removal, replacement and rehabilitation.
Are Manufacturers Responsible?
Several major hip manufacturers—including Stryker and DePuy—have recalled defective hip products, but not before hundreds of thousands of consumers received them. Whether these manufacturers should compensate the victims of their faulty products is the question currently before the courts.
Do I Have a Case?
If you received one of these defective hip replacements, and you are experiencing pain, swelling or other complications, you might require costly revision surgery. But you don’t have to go through this alone; talk to a hip replacement lawyer to find out if you are entitled to compensation for your suffering.
