Hip Replacement Lawyers in Warren

Despite being a necessary surgery that helps restore mobility and freedom to patients, hip replacements have a long history of failing to work as intended. There have been many product recalls and failed hip replacement systems, including the Stryker hip and Depuy models. Metal hip replacements have, in particular, been found to have a number of issues.

When products fail to work as intended, people suffer. This pain and suffering deserve compensation.

Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C. has successfully represented victims in faulty medical device lawsuits, so if you’re experiencing issues with your hip replacement, we can help. Our experienced personal injury lawyers always make sure to respect our attorney-client relationships while advocating for the justice and compensation you are entitled to and deserve.

Pre-existing Lawsuits

There are various major multi-district cases and legal issues surrounding hip replacements, although there is yet to be a class-action suit. In 2014, Stryker settled a $1 billion lawsuit with victims of its recalled devices. A few years later, DePuy paid out another hefty $1 billion to patients that used its faulty hip implants.

Metal-on-metal models can slowly release metal into the body, causing pain and swelling, headaches, and cognitive decline. If left untreated for long enough, wrongful death could occur as a result of metal poisoning.

Hip Implant Recalls

  • In 2008 Zimmer did a complete market recall
  • In 2010, DePuy recalled its hip replacement system because of high corrective surgery rates
  • In 2012, Stryker recalled two of its models due to corrosion
  • In 2016, the FDA issued a recall after Stryker devices were found to have taper lock issues

Who to Sue

When you’ve established that you have a legal basis for getting compensation, you next need to determine which manufacturer is liable.

To do this, you must determine which hip implant company’s product was used for your hip replacement surgery. By knowing the manufacturer, you can gather more data about the company and its hip devices. If you don’t know your model, it’s critical you find relevant medical records. A personal injury attorney at our law firm can assist with this process.

Companies that manufacture hip implants:

  • Biomet
  • Depuy
  • Stryker
  • Wright
  • Zimmer
  • Smith & Nephew
