If you’ve had a hip implant and are experiencing pain, swelling or other issues, you could be having metal-on-metal hip complications. In 2013, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration determined that metal-on-metal hip implants could erode enough through normal wear and tear to release toxic amounts of certain metals into the bloodstream.
Ow, my hip! If this is something you’ve said, you might have a hip replacement lawsuit on your hands. If you’ve received a hip replacement, your device might be subject to a hip implant recall. McIntyre Law is representing clients in Zimmer, DePuy, Stryker, Wright, Biomet, ASR and Johnson + Johnson hip implant recall lawsuits.
The courts are full of hip replacement lawsuits right now, and for good reason. Thousands of people like you have been harmed by an implant that was supposed to prevent their pain and suffering — and that’s just not right. If you have a defective hip implant, lawsuit or other court action might be the only way to recover the funds you need to get help and feel better.
