Hip replacements are designed to help patients who are experiencing hip pain or other problems. Unfortunately, some DePuy hip implants have been causing the very pain and limited motion they were designed to fix. In fact, Depuy hip implants dating back to July 2003 have been recalled due to an abnormally high rate of post-surgery complications. These implants are considered defective and have resulted in the following complications:
- Bone fracturing around the implant
- Loosening of the implant or bone
- Implant dislocation
- Cobalt-chromium toxicity
If you have experienced any of these issues, you may be suffering from a defective DePuy implant. If so, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain, suffering, corrective surgeries, medical bills and lost wages due to time off work.
At Chenkin Law Firm, we can help you gather evidence and build your case as you pursue payment for the losses you have endured.
