Can You Sue for Hip Revision Surgery?

In many cases, yes, you can sue for hip revision surgery (removal and replacement of a defective artificial hip implant product). Our clients have had hip revision surgery after suffering one or more of the following:

  • Fracture of a femoral stem
  • Loosening of any of the hip replacement parts
  • Dislocation
  • Tissue and/or bone damage, including necrosis (death)
  • Pain
  • Infection.

The above problems are all caused by metal poisoning, specifically chromium and cobalt poisoning. What happens is that the metal parts rub together, releasing chromium and cobalt ions into the surrounding tissue. These ions can destroy tissue and bone. In addition, they can get into the blood stream and move to other areas of the body.

Manufacturers of metal-on-metal hip replacement products are responsible for this. Contact our attorneys for a free consultation, and they will help you understand what claims you have against the manufacturer of your hip implant. You may be able to recover the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Disability
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Emotional Distress
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Other damages.

There is limited amount of time available to file a lawsuit against DePuy, Stryker, Smith & Nephew or another manufacturer of a metal hip implant product. Contact us at 612-338-0202 or 888-337-8900 (toll free).
