Hip Replacement Surgery
Damage caused by osteoarthritis (wearing down of the flexible tissue at the end of bones), injury, fracture, bone tumors, and other forms of arthritis may result in the breakdown of the hip joint. When pain caused by hip joint damage interferes with daily life, people may decide to undergo hip replacement surgery when other forms of treatment are not available or fail to work effectively.
Metal Hip Replacement Lawsuit Claims
Several medical device manufacturers have been named as defendants in lawsuits throughout the country. The lawsuits claim that the companies failed to advise health care providers and consumers of the potential dangers of their products before they were submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for approval.
According to court documents, the following list includes the names of manufacturers and the products they have introduced that have allegedly caused recipients to suffer from severe and life-threatening complications:
- Wright Medical Technology: Conserve line
- Stryker Orthopedics: Rejuvenate, ABG II modularneck hip stems
- Biomet: M2a Magnum
- Zimmer Holdings: Durom Cup
- Smith & Nephew: R3 Acetabular System
While several settlements have been reached in certain lawsuits, you may still be able to pursue a New York metal hip replacement lawsuit if you or someone you love was harmed as a result of a metal hip implant. Contact the Attorney Group for New York today for more information.
