San Antonio Defective Hip Implant Attorneys

Assisting Clients with DePuy & Zimmer Litigation

Currently, there are two main companies under fire for putting defective hip implants onto the market. Both DePuy and Zimmer have issued recalls for their hip implants, which have been connected with serious complications in patients, including brain toxicity.

If you or your loved one received hip implant surgery and suffered severe, life-altering injuries, it is important that you speak to an attorney. You may be entitled to take legal action by filing a products liability claim or mass tort. Defective product claims—particularly those involving defective and/or dangerous medical devices—are often very complex. The San Antonio defective hip implant lawyers at The Law Offices of Tyler & Peery have more than 100 years of combined experience handling a broad range of injury cases. We understand what it takes to investigate and try these types of cases.

Complications Caused by DePuy & Zimmer Hip Implants

Hip implants manufactured by DePuy and Zimmer have been shown to have a higher risk of complications and injuries in patients.

Common complications caused by these hip implants include:

  • DePuy ASR Hip Replacement: Can cause inflammation and tissue damage due to high levels of metal ions released by the implant; complications include infection, inflammation, pain, and may lead to further required surgeries
  • Zimmer Durom Hip Cup: Due to its no-screw/no-adhesive design, this implant has issues with failing to properly bond, resulting in the cup remaining loose in the hip socket; this causes severe pain in the patient and further corrective surgeries required
  • Cobalt-Chromium Toxicity: Recent findings show that artificial hip implants can lead to a type of brain damage known as cobalt-chromium toxicity. Due to similar symptoms, this is often misdiagnosed as dementia and, therefore, improperly treated.

Often, when hip implant patients require corrective surgeries, they are asked to sign a form that grants the surgeon/hospital to return the defective or recalled hip implant to the manufacturer. However, if you pursue a product liability case, the defective hip implant can be crucial evidence in your claim. At The Law Offices of Tyler & Peery, we encourage you to speak with one of our San Antonio defective hip implant lawyers before signing any form that allows the doctor to send away this key piece of evidence.
