For those who have had a hip replacement since 2003, you may be contacted for revision surgery due to an FDA recall on certain manufacturer’s products (DuPay ASR, Stryker Rejuvenate ABG).
These are now medical devices known to have metal breakdowns. If you are informed you need a new hip replacement device because yours has failed, do not move forward with surgery before contacting a personal injury lawyer at Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C. for a free consultation.
A metal-on-metal hip replacement might be faulty if you are experiencing pain in your groin, leg, or hip; swelling near or at the hip joint; limping or difficulty walking. Other severe side effects that can occur when metal ions enter the bloodstream include modular neck, metallosis, and blood clots.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms and have had a hip replacement in the last 17 years, seek legal counsel and get a blood test to see if any indication of metal can be found in your bloodstream.
There is a standard of care expected from surgeons and physicians, and the same holds for manufacturers. When a product they produce does not meet a standard of care and causes bodily harm with no effort for reasonable action, the manufacturer should be held liable.
A personal injury lawyer can assist you in moving forward with a liability claim to get you the compensation you deserve for pain and suffering. Undergoing hip surgery is strenuous, and there is a lengthy recovery process that you should not have to go through alone.
Contacting a legal representative before moving forward with a new hip implant can protect you from other malpractice and help with the costs.
The experienced team of personal injury lawyers at Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C. can guide you through your medical malpractice lawsuit if you are a victim of a faulty hip replacement device in Ann Arbor.
