We are accepting metal-on-metal hip replacement cases for patients who have suffered from significant problems noted with metal-on-metal hip replacement parts, including shoe made by DePuy Orthopaedics, Stryker, Zimmer, Wright, and Biomet.
A metal-on-metal hip replacement is an artificial limb implant, in which the “ball and socket” of the device are both made out of metal. A hip replacement is used for treatment of patients who suffer from hip joint deterioration or have hips damage due to arthritis, fractures, or other conditions. The device is to help reduce pain to a patient as well as increase mobility.
However, in recent news, hip replacement devices are becoming quite popular, due to the multiple class action lawsuits being filed on behalf of individuals who have suffered serious complications, including metallosis and osteolysis, or have had to undergo a revision procedure due to the defective and dangerous nature of the medical device.
The manufacturers of metal-on-metal hip replacements knew that getting the device implanted left a possible risk of patients suffering serious complications, however failed to warn individuals of the defective nature. Therefore, manufacturers may face liability for lawsuits filed from those injured.
Filing a Hip Replacement Class Action Lawsuit
At the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. our defective medical device lawyers represent patients suffering from severe complications or harm after undergoing hip replacement surgery and having a hip replacement device implanted. For this type of lawsuit, a class action lawsuit may be filed. A class action lawsuit is when a large number of individualized claims are represented by one lawsuit. Filing this type of lawsuit may be beneficial in some scenarios because often times due to the large number of claims within the lawsuit, the efficiency of the legal process can increase, as well as costs of litigation could become lower.
However, class action lawsuits can be detrimental in one’s case, and filing an individual claim may be more beneficial to a victim. It becomes common with class action lawsuits that many class members are forced into a lower settlement, due to the fact that they are “grouped” in with everyone else, and their specific injuries may not stand out in the crowd.
