Hip Implant Injury Lawyer

There was a time when hip replacement surgeries were considered to be highly complicated and risky. Not anymore. With time, science & technology have progressed, and people don’t regard these injuries the way they used to. That’s why these injuries have become very common these days. However, there still are some risks and side-effects that we cannot afford to overlook.

In hip implant surgeries, the natural hip bones are replaced with artificial metal components. This is where the problem comes in. Most of the times, it’s not the medical malpractice that is behind injuries but the defective artificial hip system. Many manufacturers of hip implant systems were made to recall their hip implants.

One of the many companies that issued defective devices is DePuy. The DePuy saga caused a massive uproar across the country as around 12% of patients who received an ASR device needed revision surgery. Unfortunately, DePuy wasn’t the only company with failed ASR devices which has recalled their devices.

Failing Hip Implant: How to Recognize

Identifying a failing hip implant isn’t an easy thing. However, specific symptoms have been identified amongst the victims of failing hip implant. Here are the signs to look for:

  • Pain and discomfort in the hip, groin, lower back, or legs
  • Difficulty while standing or walking
  • Swelling and inflammation in the hip joint
  • Decreased flexibility and mobility
  • Muscle damage
  • Creaking or squeaky sound in the hip joint area
  • Limping – favouring one leg over the other
  • Increased pain while doing physical activities
  • Fatigue

What Causes the Failure?

The metal-on-metal hip replacement devices are made of chromium-cobalt. Chromium ions–which act as a carcinogen—shed toxic nano-particles of chromium and cobalt into the body when the metal parts of the device grind together. These poisonous particles form slag around the implant, which could result in pain, swelling, pseudo-tumours, metal poisoning of blood and other such complications.

You Have All the Right to be Angry

People who have fallen victims to failing metal hip implant require painful and expensive revision surgery to replace the defective implant devices. Keep in mind that these injuries are not only costly and painful, but they’re also dangerous in nature. All of this is very frustrating as there isn’t a single wrong thing you did. Although the damage that’s been done can’t be repaired, you surely deserve hip replacement compensation for all the pain and suffering you have endured.
