Lawsuits Involving Metal-On-Metal Hip Implants
Several metal-on-metal hips have been recalled, the medical device used during a hip replacement procedure, that is linked to causing heart problems and failure in patients. The biggest concern with using metal on metal hip replacements is that the particles of metal are released from the metal hip implant into the bloodstream. Those metal particles will eventually travel around the body which will lead to the hip implant causing issues with many areas of the body other than just the hip. Hip replacement lawsuits are being filed by people facing serious complications from their hip replacement devices. More than 29,000 lawsuits have been filed against hip manufacturers, including Stryker and Depuy. Companies have paid more than $7 billion in settlements and verdicts. Most large hip replacement actions involve metal-on-metal designs. They were supposed to be more durable, but lawsuits claim the devices shed microscopic amounts of chromium, cobalt, or other metals into the body. In addition to creating immediate health problems for the patient, the condition can weaken an implant and cause it to fail. Call us today at 504-227-8100 for a free case evaluation.
