Pennsylvania Hip Replacement Lawyers
Pennsylvania – New Jersey
Artificial hip replacement devices have been linked to causing blood poisoning in patients. This high level of metal toxicity is a result of metal on metal hip devices that have been found to release metal shavings into the bloodstream. This sort of corrosion can damage surrounding tissue and bones, leading to further complications.
Most recently, the hip replacement manufacturer DePuy Orthopaedics has settled for billions of dollars stemming from the recall of their ASR™ XL Acetabular Hip System and DePuy ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System (August 2010). These products are suppose to be reliable for up to 15 years. However studies and reports have shown the hip implants were failing after only 5 to 6 years.
You may be at risk with other hip replacement devices as well. There have been over 800 lawsuits filed against the Hip replacement company Biomet, for their metal on metal M2a Magnum Hip System. Stryker Corporation and their Rejuvenate Hip Systems is also under fire for similar health risks. All of these hip implant devices consist of a metal “ball and cup”. Over time, these devices begin to erode causing pain, sickness and other life threatening conditions.
There is a wide range of symptoms that you may experience from these defective metal on metal hip implants. Please seek medical attention and our legal representation if you or your loved one shows signs of:
- Chronic pain
- Nail Discoloration
- Sore muscles
- Trouble seeing or hearing
- Nervous System issues
- Heart Troubles
(These may be a serious sign of metal toxicity from the metal on metal hip implant dispensing metallic particles throughout your body)
