What You Need to Know About Metal-on-Metal Hip Implant Recalls

What kinds of difficulties are associated with metal-on-metal hip implants?

A number of complications have been reported in association with the use of metal-on-metal hip implants. Symptoms of hip implant failure have ranged from life-threatening blood poisoning to mild hip and groin discomfort. Other problems include pain, swelling, fever, loss of mobility, difficulty walking, hip joint failure, and psychological issues.

I have a metal-on-metal hip implant. Does this mean I am eligible to file a claim?

Not necessarily. Some products that were not pre-approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) through the 510(k) Clearance Program will not have the same protections as products that were approved. In light of claims that the product was similar in nature to other approved products, however, some devices may be approved without the necessary market testing.

Products such as the Stryker hip implant were not subject to pre-market approval under 510(k) clearance due to similar Stryker products that were already deemed "safe" by the FDA. Due to the complex nature of these claims, you are encouraged to speak to an attorney about your situation. We can verify your eligibility and work with you to help you get your entitled compensation.

If manufacturers like DePuy and Stryker are paying for reimbursement through the Broadspire Reimbursement Program, why should I take legal action?

The truth of the matter is, major corporations like DePuy and Stryker are far more willing to pay for the situation to go away rather than pay the patients who have been innocently hurt by their defective products. Through the Broadspire Reimbursement Program, you may receive some financial compensation for costs associated with a revision surgery, for example, but this compensation will not pay for other expenses. Only an attorney can help you maximize your compensation so that you are not left paying bills and incurring other costs for an injury that was caused by gross negligence.

So, do I need to file a claim?

Absolutely. More evidence is revealing the truly devastating side effects of metal-on-metal hip implants. By taking legal action, you can receive compensation for past, current, and future medical expenses. Once you have started the process, we can guide you every step of the way to make certain your damages are maximized. As a team led by a skilled litigator, we can help you join a multidistrict litigation claim or proceed with your individual claim to help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
