Are There Any Out-of-Pocket Costs to Hire an Attorney for a Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement Case?



Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. was previously investigating potential cases for individuals throughout the United States who have experienced problems following hip replacement surgery where they received a DePuy ASR hip, DePuy Pinnacle hip, Biomet Magnum hip, Wright Medical Conserve hip or any other brand of metal-on-metal hip replacement.

Please note that the lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are no longer taking on new cases involving DePuy ASR Hip Replacements. The content on this page is provided for informational purposes only.

All cases are handled by our product liability law firm under a contingency fee agreement, which means that there are never any out-of-pocket expenses to hire our attorneys to represent you or your family. We only receive an attorney fee if a recovery is obtained.


Through the use of contingency fees, our experienced metal-on-metal hip replacement attorneys are able to provide the highest quality of representation to every client – regardless of their individual financial resources.

Instead of paying an hourly fee or retainer, our product liability attorneys are only paid out of any money that is recovered through your metal hip replacement lawsuit and we receive no fee if we do not win your case.

Free consultations are provided so that our attorneys can help determine if you may qualify for a potential claim. It is not necessary that you know the exact model of the artificial hip implant received or whether your device is a metal-on-metal hip.

Following a free consultation and claim evaluation, if it appears that you may be entitled to compensation through a metal-on-metal hip replacement case, our attorney can review the appropriate medical records to confirm the type of implant received. If it turns out that you or your loved one do not qualify for a case, there are no costs or expenses associated with our services.


In recent years, a number of manufacturers have introduced metal-on-metal hip implant designs, which feature an all-metal design. These devices were promoted for younger and more active patients, as the manufacturers indicated that they would be more durable. However, the design was not adequately researched, and it is now associated with a high rate of early failures and complications from metal poisoning.

As the metal parts rub against each other, microscopic shavings of metal may be released into the body, which may cause pain, inflammation, tumors and other complications for individuals who received a metal-on-metal hip replacement.

Individual lawsuits and class action suits are being pursued by our injury attorneys for individuals throughout the United States who have received a metal-on-metal hip replacement and experienced problems or symptoms of complications, such as:

  • Unexplained hip pain
  • Swelling of the hip
  • Problems Walking
  • Loosening of the metal hip implant
  • Fracture of the bone around the implant
  • Dislocation of the ASR hip

New cases are no longer being accepted by Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. This page is maintained for informational purposes only.

    I have had a Smith and Nephew hip since 2007 and I just found out it leaks chromium and cobalt. I need a new hip and due to health issues from the metalosis, I can’t work. Somebody needs to be held accountable!
