In recent years, serious safety problems have been linked to a number of different hip replacement systems, resulting in a higher-than-expected rate of failure and other complications.
In an effort to increase profits and promote “new and improved” technologies, manufacturers have introduced and sold certain hip implants without adequately testing and researching the design. As a result, individuals throughout the United States have been unwitting test subjects, with unreasonably dangerous and defective devices implanted in their body.
A steady stream of hip replacement recalls have been issued by several major manufacturers, and serious safety issues have been discovered involving other products and designs. As a result, the hip lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. investigate cases for individuals who may have received certain components, including:
Since many individuals are unaware of the exact components used during their procedure, or whether they have a recalled hip replacement, lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. provide free consultations and case evaluations to help determine whether you or a loved one may be entitled to a hip replacement settlement.
The Stryker LFit (Low Friction Ion Treatment) Anatomic CoCr V40TM femoral head is a hip implant component used in certain Stryker hip replacement systems, such as the Stryker Accolade and other implants.
In 2016, the manufacturer recalled Stryker LFit V40 femoral heads from the market, indicating certain components may have a higher-than-expected rate of problems.
Free case evaluations are provided to help determine whether problems with a Stryker hip replacement may be caused by the LFit V40 femoral head.
In July of 2012, Stryker recalled Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Systems, which feature a modular-neck stem that may corrode, fret and wear. Individuals have faced an alarmingly high failure rate, and hip replacement settlements have been paid to compensate those who have experienced problems with Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II implants.
As more of these defective Stryker Rejuvenate hips fail in the future, individuals may still be able to obtain financial compensation. Cases continue to be reviewed for individuals nationwide.
The DePuy ASR is a metal-on-metal hip replacement, which was removed from the market after it was discovered that the design increases the risk of metal poisoning, loosening and failure within a few years after implant. The DePuy ASR hip recall resulted in thousands of lawsuits and the manufacturer agreed to pay several billion to settle hip cases.
As recalled DePuy ASR implants remain in place, individuals are likely to continue experiencing problems as the metal parts rub against each other during normal daily activities.
Many types of metal hip replacements have been plagued by reports of early failure, often within a few years after the device is implanted. Amid reports of problems with metal-on-metal hip replacements, several manufacturers have been forced to issue hip recalls or have essentially ceased marketing all metal hip designs due to safety concerns.
Cases are also being reviewed for individuals who received other artificial hip replacement systems that have been linked to reports of problems, including the Wright Profemur Hip Implant, and the Zimmer Durom Cup, both of whose defective designs were linked to a number of catastrophic failures and caused a number of individuals to require revision surgery.
Potential hip infection lawsuits are also being reviewed for individuals who experienced problems following surgery since 2009. The use of a 3M Bair Hugger warming device during many hip replacements may have caused bacteria and other contaminants from the operating room floor to enter the sterile surgical site.
Potential hip replacement class action and individual injury lawsuits are pursued for individuals who had a defective and unreasonably dangerous device implanted in their body. Some of the common allegations raised in hip implant lawsuit include:
Failure to Adequately Research the Hip Implant Injury Risks;
Failure to Properly Investigate Post-Market Reports of Hip Implant Problems;
Failure to Promptly Issue a Hip Replacement Recall;
Designing and Selling a Defective and Unreasonably Dangerous Hip Implant;
Putting Profits Before the Safety of Hip Replacement Patients.
