Defective Hip Implant Lawsuits
Experienced Texas Attorneys For Recipients Of Bad Hip Implants
There are currently two major hip implant recalls underway that could impact several Texas patients: DePuy and Zimmer. At The Law Offices of Tyler & Peery, our lawyers represent clients in a broad range of defective product cases. From our offices in San Antonio, we help clients across the state to seek compensation from the manufacturers of products that cause or aggravate injury.
If you have undergone hip replacement surgery and any part of the implant has failed, you likely have cause for a product liability claim. Defective hip implant lawsuits can be extremely complex legal matters. Our attorneys have the skill and the commitment to see that your interests are protected and that the negligent parties are held accountable.
DePuy Hip Implant Recall
The subject of the DePuy recall is the DePuy ASR hip replacement. With many of the DePuy hips, tissue is damaged due to the high level of metal ions that are released by the implant. This excessive release of ions can lead to inflammation, infections and other issues that cause extreme pain and eventually require revision surgery.
Zimmer Durom Hip Cup Recall
The primary issue with the Zimmer hip implant is its failure to bond. It was designed so that bone would grow into the device so that no screws or adhesives would need to be used during installation. This failure to bond has left the Zimmer Durom hip cup loose in the socket, resulting in severe pain when weight is put on the hip. Many Zimmer hip recipients have required revision surgeries to correct the problem.
Before You Sign Any Pre-Revision Surgery Forms, Call Our Firm
In many cases, the manufacturers are asking the doctors who do the revision surgeries to have patients sign forms allowing for the return of the defective implants to the manufacturer for testing. Before you sign anything, be sure that you have the forms reviewed by one of our attorneys. We will advise you on the impact of signing the forms and if you may be giving away a key piece of evidence.
