Hip Replacment Lawsuits

When Stryker, DePuy and several other hip devices catapulted on the market in the mid 2000s, the manufacturers promised the devices would be better than earlier hip-implant device designs. These new hip implant designs showcased innovative technology, better components and groundbreaking scientific advancements that were aimed at reducing injuries. Just years later, these patients realized that the innovation was just smoke and mirrors. Stryker and DePuy hips, along with hip devices made from other manufacturers, are linked to dozens of serious, debilitating injuries.

Here at the Hip Replacement Lawsuit Center we understand the problems caused by these metal-on-metal or metal-joint hip replacements. Between all of the doctor’s visits, medical tests and procedures, you are in pain and are frustrated. This new hip was supposed to help. Instead, it’s a great big headache.

Hip Device Complications

Sometimes the complications from these metal-on-metal devices start with a squeaking noise or a click when you move. Other times, it’s just aches and pain. All of these things can be signs that your hip device is failing. Don’t ignore these signs; instead, call your doctor now and make an appointment. Your doctor will run some tests to immediately determine if your hip device is failing. Research shows that certain brands of hips are prone to failure:

  • DePuy
  • Stryker
  • Zimmer Holdings
  • Smith & Nephew
  • Wright Medical Technology
  • Biomet

Hip Replacement Recalls

For the tens of thousands of patients nationwide who have a hip implant device, the widespread recalls have been frightening. There’s so much information, and misinformation, out there about which devices are recalled. We are here to help. Our Legal Experts can help you determine if you have a recalled hip device and discuss your next steps.

  • DePuy; ASR XL Acetabular Hip System and ASR Hip Resurfacing System; 2012
  • Stryker; Rejuvenate Modular and ABG II Modular-Neck hip stems; 2012
  • Zimmer; Durom Acetabular Component (Durom Cup); 2008 but returned to market after revision to components
  • Smith & Nephew; R3 Acetabular System; 2012

If you are among the injured patients who have hip devices that were recalled, you are probably confused and a bit overwhelmed. Clearly, recalling a device that’s already implanted in your body is not like a medication recall. You can’t just give it back.

Hip Revision Surgery

Scores of patients have gone back into the operating room in the past few years to have their defective hip devices replaced. This surgery, called revision surgery, is known to be more difficult and costly than the original surgery. That’s because more skill is needed to remove the old device and put a new one in its place.

The Legal Experts at the Hip Replacement Lawsuit Center have helped many patients who have already gone through this process. We understand the emotional and physical pain that comes with revision surgery and can help. While no amount of money will take away the pain or give back your life, a financial settlement can help alleviate the burden of medical bills, household expenses and other expenses incurred as a result of the defective hip.
