Hip Replacement Injury Attorneys


A team that fights for you.

Metal hip replacements have been causing problems for patients for years. Some estimate that more than 400,000 people are at risk for developing problems after receiving a Metal-on-Metal (M-o-M) hip implant. Replacement hips with cobalt chromium (CoCr) heads are associated with significant problems. Some of the complications of metal hips are metal poisoning or metallosis, fretting, corrosion, pseudo-tumors, loss of function, fractures, and separation of the head from the stem. These can lead to the need for painful additional revision surgeries and permanent health problems. As a result, many lawsuits have been filed against several manufacturers of these defective medical devices.
