Nationwide Lawyers Helping Defective Metal Hip Implant Victims
Hundreds of thousands of patients undergo hip replacement surgery every year due to degenerative arthritis or injury. The procedure is often recommended when other treatment methods have failed, and involves replacing a painful hip joint with an artificial joint made of metal or plastic. But some of the most popular implants, which use a metal cup-and-ball design, can break down or fail within the body—leading to a host of painful complications.

When you call us, we’ll answer your questions and determine if you have a case at no cost to you.

Complications Caused by Metal Hip Implant Failure
Metal-on-metal hip implant failure can be accompanied by a variety of painful complications, including:
- Hip breakage
- Joint instability
- Bone fractures
- Joint popping
- Inflammation around the implant site
Whether you’re suffering from these symptoms, or you were required to undergo a revision surgery to correct a defective metal hip implant, Fair Share Lawyers is ready to help you protect your rights to compensation.
Hip Implant Metal Poisoning Dangers
When the metal components within a metal-on-metal hip implant rub together, they can create metal shavings that get stuck in nearby tissue or enter into the bloodstream. Over time, metals can build up in the body, leading to a condition called metallosis that can lead to hip replacement failure, metal poisoning, and other health complications.
