Defective Hip Replacement Components

by Staff Blogger | February 23rd, 2016

You suffered for years from hip pain. It kept you from doing the things you love by limiting your mobility and forcing you to deal with chronic pain and discomfort. Something had to be done to restore your quality of life, so your doctor recommended hip replacement surgery. You agreed, and the surgery went well. However, after just a few months or years, your hip implant failed, resulting in a medical emergency that required additional surgeries.

You’re not alone. In recent years, several hip implants have been recalled due to high failure rates. When these devices fail, hospitalization and corrective surgeries are often necessary, turning a life-restoring procedure into an ongoing medical nightmare. The truth is, these products should have never made it to market. They should have been thoroughly tested and vetted before being offered to surgeons and their patients. Unfortunately, you’re the one to suffer from a medical device manufacturer’s negligence.

At Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough, we believe defective medical device manufacturers should be held liable for the injuries they cause patients, which is why we’re actively seeking individuals who received any of the following defective joint replacement components and required hospitalization or corrective surgeries:

  • Biomet M2a-Magnum™
  • DePuy ASR™
  • Stryker® Rejuvenate and ABG II Devices
  • Wright PROFEMUR® and CONSERVE® Hip Implants
  • Zimmer Durom® Acetabular Component (“Durom Cup”)
