I and attorney David Szerlag are representing several patients who had metal-on-metal hip replacements, specifically DePuy ASR™ XL Acetabular System. We are representing victims of these defective metal-on-metal hip replacement implants throughout the United States, and have filed metal hip lawsuits in several states.
Our clients have had or will be having hip revision surgery due to one or more of the following problems:
- Raised blood cobalt and chromium ions (chromium and cobalt poisoning)
- Loosening of metal hip implant components
- Hip fracture
- Soft tissue reactions around the hip
- Gait issues (problems walking)
Metal Hip Lawsuit Questions and Answers
What kind of compensation will I be able to recover?
In most cases, you will be able to recover amounts for medical expenses (including expected future expenses), lost income (including future lost income), pain and suffering (includes physical pain, emotional distress, disability, loss of quality of life, etc.), and other damages specific to your case. We will look at your medical history, your work history, your hobbies and other aspects of your life to come up with a compensation package for you.
Can I file a lawsuit even if I don’t need hip revision surgery?
Yes, depending on the facts of your case you may have a claim against Johnson & Johnson (DePuy) or another manufacturer. You will need to contact me or David to discuss your case, but our medical experts are convinced that many people who had metal-on-metal hip replacements will have health issues resulting in future medical expenses. Because of this, all metal-on-metal hip implant patients should be carefully monitored, an expense that the patient should not have to bear.
How much will I need to pay your law firm?
