Defective Hip Replacement Lawsuits Continue
During the past 10 years, thousands of defective hip replacement implants have been implanted in patients which have caused serious injury or even death. The hip replacement manufacturers include Stryker Orthopedic, Depuy, Zimmer and Smith & Nephew.
The defects in the hip replacement implants are virtually the same across the board; the use of metal-on-metal components which overtime distribute metal ions through the patients body. Often times, elevated levels of metals are detected. In other cases, patients are experiencing severe pain and discomfort.
Several settlements have been announced recently which compensate patients who have one of the recalled and defective hip replacement implants. Most patients don’t know whether they qualify. Contact us today to find out if your qualify. Our attorneys will provide you with a free, no obligation and confidential evaluation of your case and tell you if you are eligible or not.
