Hip Replacement Lawsuits – List of Hip Cases as of 2013

Hip replacement surgery is one of the most common joint replacement procedures performed in the United States. Many people who suffer from osteoarthritis and other conditions find relief with this surgery and go on to live active, productive lives. Some, however, have suffered debilitating side effects.

Metal-on-metal hip implants have been particularly problematic for patients. Once deemed a technological breakthrough that would extend the lifespan of artificial hip joints, metal-on-metal hip implants often fail at a much higher-than-expected rate. And they often pose another serious problem: The all-metal construction sometimes leads to metallosis, a condition that results when microscopic metal particles shed from the metal-on-metal joint become embedded in the patient’s tissue.

A a result of their high failure rates and tendency to expose patients to toxic particles, the metal-on-metal hip replacement devices listed below have become the subject of lawsuits. If you were implanted with one of these devices and you believe that implant harmed you, read on to learn how we can help you to recover monetary compensation for injuries.
