Attorneys for Defective Medical Device Lawsuits
Legal Cases for Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement and Other Emerging Lawsuits
For many years, hips were replaced with a wide variety of materials and compounds, but in recent years metal-on-metal replacements have become quite standard. Since the late 1990s, these medical devices have been used to either fully or partially replace countless hips in people of all ages. If you or a loved one has had a metal-on-metal hip replacement, you may want to contact an attorney with a strong focus on medical device lawsuits. There is a decent chance that the replacement will lead to negative side effects if it has not already done so. If the hip replacement has already led to side effects or has failed, you must contact an attorney to get the justice and compensation that you need.

The Risks of Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacements and how to get Compensation
Many reports in medical journals have cited the problem of early failure of some metal-on-metal hip replacement devices. Many of these failures have been known to cause:
- Metallic particles or metal ions getting into the bloodstream, and causing pain and/or disability
- Dislocation of the device resulting in debilitating pain and falls
- Delayed hypersensitivity response which may lead to inflammation, infection and skin irritation
- A wide range of allergic reactions to the materials
In 2012, the FDA announced its increased scrutiny focused upon metal-on-metal hip replacements. The FDAs new research and findings may show the unacknowledged dangers of these products.
