Hip Lawsuit Attorney Supports Patient Safety

Attorney David Szerlag will be attending the FDA advisory committee meeting June 27-28 to review data on metal-on-metal (MOM) hip systems, including failure rates, patient complications, and risk factors associated with these hip replacements. Attorneys Szerlag and Fred Pritzker are representing several patients who had these hip systems implanted in lawsuits against manufacturers.

The risk of failure and adverse complications is so high, that British regulators have told medical professionals that these patients need regular checkups for the life of the MOM hip replacement system. These tests include clinical evaluations checking for pain and gait problems and test for metal ions, including chromium and cobalt.

Not surprisingly, the FDA has been slower to act. Our guess is because most of the companies making MOM hip systems are U.S. companies. David is attending the FDA meeting to support actions to protect patients.

He is answering questions regarding compensation for revision surgery, chromium and cobalt poisoning, and the risk of these. Several manufacturers make MOM hip systems. In 2010, DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. (owned by Johson & Johnson) recalled the DePuy ASR™ XL Acetabular System hip replacement. Because of this, the time for filing a hip failure lawsuit against DePuy and J&J is running out. Contact David and Fred or another hip revision surgery lawsuit lawyer at our law firm now.
