Hip Replacements

Defective Hip Replacements

Seek Help from Our Pittsburgh Defective Medical Device Attorneys

As we age, our bodies wear down. Modern medical technology has improved the lives of millions through hip replacements. These surgically implanted devices allow for increased mobility and independence. Certain hip replacement products, however, have led to injury and further pain for patients. Sometimes additional surgeries and revisions are the only ways to deal with the pain.

Medical device manufacturers have a responsibility to provide defect-free products. When their products fail, like many hip replacement products have, they can be legally responsible. Our team of Pittsburgh defective medical device attorneys may be able to help you hold them accountable.

If you or a loved one has suffered further pain because of a defective hip replacement, please contact the litigation attorneys at our Pittsburgh law offices today at (844) 383-0565.

Legal Solutions And Lawsuits Following Defective Hip Replacement

At Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C., we help patients who have suffered because of the negligence of medical device manufacturers. Our litigation attorneys know how to hold these companies responsible for the pain you have endured. We will thoroughly investigate your situation and provide you with a clear understanding of all options available to you.

Certain manufacturers lead the industry in reported defects to hip replacement products. This includes DePuy, Stryker, Zimmer, Biomet and Corin.

These products can be defective in a variety of ways, including:

  • Creating fractures in the bone surrounding the product
  • Breaking of the device
  • Shredding of metal bits from the device after constant stress and weight
  • Coming disattached from the hip

Patients complain of painful stiffness and instability around the artificial joint. In some cases, wear and tear to the device causes the joint to dislocate.

If you have experienced any of these symptoms, please reach out to our Pittsburgh defective medical device lawyers at (844) 383-0565.
