Hip Replacement Lawsuit

As our population ages, more and more people turn to hip replacement surgery for the promise of less pain and greater mobility. Unfortunately, many hip implant surgeries cause more problems than they solve.  Over the last several years, hip implant manufacturers have been involved in several lawsuits and class actions arising from complications related to faulty hip implants. Metal-on-metal hip implants are particularly notorious for causing problems.

Possible complications include pain, swelling, metal poisoning that can result in impaired kidney function, thyroid issues, depression and other psychological issues, and cardiomyopathy, a condition that weakens and enlarges the heart. Manufacturers should be held accountable for selling and promoting these defective products.

If you received a hip implant, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, and other losses.  It is important that you speak with an experienced lawyer who is knowledgeable about hip replacement litigation. Numerous manufacturers are involved and many lawsuits have already been filed. That’s why you need to work with someone who understands the big picture as well as the medical implications and product liability issues surrounding hip replacement surgery and hip implants. Speak with a Cunningham Bounds medical malpractice lawyer today even if you are unsure about which hip implant you’ve received.
