File a Hip Replacement Lawsuit

Several patients have already filed lawsuits against hip implant manufacturers. Settlements are expected to be substantial.

You may be eligible to file a hip replacement lawsuit if you or your loved one has suffered complications due to a defective hip implant device.

What are the Criteria for Filing a Hip Implant Lawsuit?

The FDA has ordered a review of all metal-on-metal hip implants due to mounting patient complaints.

Problems with metal-on-metal include, but are not limited to loosening, metallosis (ie: tissue or bone death), fracturing, and/or corrosion and fretting of these devices, which require revision surgery.

Many patients that require revision surgery due to these devices suffer significant post-revision complications.

We are investigating all cases involving metal-on-metal hip implants, including the DePuy Orthopaedics ASR XL Acetabular System and the DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System, recalled in August 2010; the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck stems, recalled in July 2012; the Stryker LFIT Anatomic v40 Femoral Head (recalled August 29, 2016); the DePuy Pinnacle, the Zimmer Durom Cup, the Wright Conserve, and the Biomet M2A “38mm” and M2A-Magnum hip replacement systems, which have not been recalled.

Reported problems include pain, swelling and problems walking.

The criteria specific to DePuy hip replacement lawsuits include:

  • Implanted with a DePuy ASR hip implant, Pinnacle Ultamet, or Metal-on-Metal liner
  • Underwent hip revision surgery to remove the device after November 2013 or is scheduled for revision surgery

Why File a Hip Replacement Lawsuit?

Hip Replacement lawsuits are filed against several different device manufacturers. Lawsuit allegations include that these manufacturers:

  • Failed to warn the public of the risks of the hip replacement devices
  • Failed to properly test hip replacement devices for dangerous side-effects
  • Withheld research data from the public about hip replacement dangers
  • Sold hip replacement devices even though they knew it could be dangerous
  • Manufactured and sold an unsafe product

Compensation In Hip Replacement Lawsuits

Settlements in hip replacement lawsuits provide compensation for pain and suffering, as well as psychological damage. Damages also include medical expenses and lost wages.
