If you are struggling with your hip replacement system and perhaps have endured painful revision surgery, you need a hip attorney who can help you recover the compensation you deserve. Hip replacement systems have seen an unprecedented number of recalls to the detriment of many unsuspecting hip replacement patients. Whether you received a Johnson & Johnson DePuy or ASR-model hip replacement or any other brand of replacement, we are available to help you with your claim.
Hip replacement devices have faltered for a number of reasons. Namely, the ball-and-socket design of metal hip replacement systems leads to an inevitable “rubbing” of the replacement components which, in turn, results in fragments of metal released into the blood stream. This is a dangerous scenario that can lead to serious issues with blood toxicity and potential poisoning.
Certain other hip replacement patients have reported problems with their replacement system coming loose or separating. This can also lead to painful consequences and almost always requires some sort of revision surgery- whether it is a complete hip replacement revision or a revision to the current system. In any event, patients have a legal right to be able to rely upon their medical device to be in good working order at all times and those patients who have experienced pain and suffering due to faulty equipment may be entitled to damages.
A good hip attorney will help his or her client form a claim based upon that client’s experience with his or her hip replacement system. The claim should detail all the client’s issues and problems with the device as well as the amount expended as a result of the issue. If the client was forced to miss extra work days due to revision surgery or rehabilitation appointments, these lost wages should undoubtedly be named in the personal injury action.
If you received a hip replacement system that was faulty or defective, you may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer of this dangerous product. We are a nationwide law firm with experience and dedication to victims of ineffective hip replacement products and would be happy to discuss your case with you as soon as possible.
