Potential Hip Replacement Complications
The metal-on-metal design of these implants has proven to be problematic. Potential complications include:
- Hip replacement failure
- Loosened hip implant
- Metal toxicity
- Hip replacement dislocation
- Severe inflammation
- Limited mobility
These complications are serious. If you received such a defective hip replacement, you may be in a lot of pain and you may have a great deal of trouble getting around. Walking and standing may be excruciating. You deserve a monetary award for the harm caused by the defective implant. These awards may be granted for things including:
- Medical bills
- Loss of wages
- Pain and suffering
Call our attorneys to find out if you have a claim. When you decide to undergo surgery for joint replacement, you trust the product recommended to you will relieve you of pain and increase your mobility. Effective joint replacements can have a very positive effect on a person's life.
But when the device you receive is faulty and dangerous, you may have to undergo additional surgery and the burdens that come along with it. You deserve justice and the chance to hold the manufacturer accountable.
What You Should Do
If you think you may be experiencing a complication, you should discuss the issue with your doctor and call our attorneys as soon as possible. A significant number of claims have been filed by people who received defective Wright Medical hip implants. You may be entitled to a monetary award.
Problems occur because of the faulty metal-on-metal design of these implants. Unlike joint replacements that utilize plastic or ceramic, the all-metal components may release metal debris when they rub together. It is this metal debris that causes problems in the body. Inflammation, metal poisoning, infection and other issues can lead to failure of the implant and pain. People who received the hip replacements feel lied to by the device manufacturer, and as though they were not properly and fully informed of the risks.
