Quality of life is very important and artificial joints were supposed to improve one’s quality of life, not reduce it. Hip replacement legal causes of action cases have been won on many grounds including if a manufacturing company created a defective product, deceived a customer, caused serious hip pain, has acted negligently, and from many other unethical behaviors. There is a duty for them to create a hip that doesn’t need further surgery or another replacement within a reasonable amount of time. Here are a few examples of some of the companies who are believed to have produced faulty hips for hip replacement patients during the last few years. We promise to be by your side throughout the entire process.
Johnson and Johnson have quite a problem on their hands. The core of the issues that have been found with the DePuy hips (ASR XL Acetubular and ASR Hip Resurfacing System) are that the parts and pieces do not fit well (both together and within a human body). The fact that they lack of a smooth and effortless fit creates friction and particles that are able to cause inflammation, pain and irritation. The result is that pain, scarring and damage occur to the muscles, nerves and bones that are connected to or near the new metal and artificial hip. It has been said that the company was receiving complaints about the side effects without warning the public or recalling their product for quite some time before finally acting. A startling statistic regarding this is that around 12.5% of those who received a DePuy hip replacement needed to have another surgery or hip procedure done within five years.
This is a very similar case to the defective DePuy ASR recall case in that the company received hundreds of complaints and could see the statistics about their customers needing further hip surgeries. Even with all of that, they did not recall the products or warn their customers. Their product was sometimes called the Zimmer Duron Acetabular Component.
In the case of the defective Biomet hip replacements, the zirconia ceramic femoral heads (or otherwise known as the ball) fractured and caused a grinding sensation, hip pain, and possibly even limited motion Similar and more recent cases included Apex Surgical, DePuy Orthopedics, Encore Orthopedics, Osteoimplant Technology, Smith and Nephew, Stryker Howmedica Osteonics, and Zimmer. We will be glad to discuss your hip replacement if it was made by any of the previous companies or a company that is not listed here.
Even though this case really started to garner national attention last year, plenty of faulty hip replacement lawsuits are being filed to this day. It is most likely not too late so be sure to call our firm to learn of your legal options. Their Trident PSL and Hemispherical Acetabular Cup hip products were recalled only after the FDA sent numerous letters that stipulated the company should address customer complaints.
Be sure to call your doctor and our local Los Angeles firm right away if you have any doubt as to the quality, longevity or integrity of your hip joint replacement. Time is of the essence as faulty hip joints can do a lot of damage to your body and system. Be aware of significant pain, dislocation, difficulty walking, tissue damage, potential new allergic reactions, bone fracture, trouble standing, a sensation of grinding, metal sensitivity, limited range of motion, the hip replacement loosening, swelling, and infection. Much of those symptoms are from the toxic metal particles being rubbed off as metal grinds on metal in the defective artificial joint.
