How an Experienced Hip Recall Attorney May Be Able to Help

With an eye toward an aging population who work at remaining active long into their sixties and seventies, manufacturers began marketing metal-on-metal hip implants. These new implants were touted as lasting from ten to twenty years with no safety concerns noted by the manufacturers. All-metal hip implants literally stormed the market, pushing out the ceramic and polyethylene implants which had been used successfully for decades. Unfortunately, as your hip recall attorney can tell you, manufacturers of the metal hip implants failed to fully test the implants for safety or possibly were aware of safety concerns yet continued to market the implants in response to financial greed. A flurry of metal hip recalls soon followed, requiring victims to turn to a knowledgeable hip recall attorney for help. Over 500,000 people received a metal-on-metal hip implant, and thousands of those have been forced to consult a hip recall attorney after suffering serious harm to their health.

A knowledgeable hip recall attorney can assess the level of harm done to victims of metal hip implants, offering both compassion and options. In fact, your hip recall attorney has the specific knowledge of all the metal hip recalls to determine just what your damages are, and aggressively pursue them on your behalf. A recent recall for one manufacturer’s metal hip replacement cautioned recipients about “fretting and corrosion” which can, in turn, lead to microscopic metal ion debris flooding the body. When those metal ions lodge in the surrounding hip tissues, inflammation occurs, causing pain to the implant recipient. A qualified hip recall attorney can also counsel victims of metal hip implants about the many symptoms of metal toxicity or metal poisoning which occur when the metal ions enter the bloodstream.

When a Hip Implant Recall Attorney Can Help You Get Your Life Back on Track

Your hip recall attorney knows that finding out a medical device you believed to be safe is actually faulty can be extremely distressing. Many consumers feel reassured when a manufacturer announces a product recall however a recall does not necessarily warrant your trust. As a qualified hip recall attorney can tell you, the recall may be just the “tip of the iceberg.” Metal hip manufacturers who issue a recall may be facing considerable financial liability for marketing a dangerous or defective product. Your hip recall attorney will work hard to ensure you are not taken advantage of and that the manufacturer of your metal hip implant is not allowed to blame you for the failure of your implant.

Consult Your Hip Recall Attorney before Signing Anything

In order to protect your rights and your future, your hip recall attorney will want to read every document provided by the manufacturer of your hip implant. Signing paperwork without speaking to your hip recall attorney could leave you unable to file a lawsuit against the negligent party to recover your medical expenses, lost wages, or pain and suffering. Remember that compensation is usually limited under recalls and may not fully cover your future medical expenses. Your hip recall attorney may counsel you to file a lawsuit in order to fully recoup your losses. For instance, one manufacturer who issued a metal hip recall did not mention potential losses such as lost wages, pain and suffering, only offering to cover the costs of a revision surgery. Your hip recall attorney has your best interests at heart and will work hard to protect your future.

For those victims of a metal hip implant who have spent thousands—or hundreds of thousands—of dollars on medical expenses directly related to a defective hip implant, a recall offer by the manufacturer may seem terribly unfair. Your hip recall attorney may caution you to be careful when speaking to a manufacturer’s representative. The makers of these defective devices will do their best to collect health information from you which they will then use to limit your legal claims. Remember also that the treatment being offered under the recall may not be appropriate for you. You, your physician and your hip replacement recall attorney must work together in order to determine the best course of action for you. Find a trusted hip recall attorney then refrain from doing anything without his or her advice.
