Defective Hip Implants Product Liability Lawsuits in East Texas
Hip surgery is one of the most common surgeries performed throughout the country. This is a major operation – one that is hoped will resolve the deterioration of the hip joint. The recovery time is long, usually from 6 months to a year, and is often painful for the patient.
Unfortunately, a large number of people have suffered the serious situation of going through the operation and later discovering that their hip implant is defective, and they must once again go through surgery, a very serious situation, particularly for the elderly who most often need the procedure. A Longview personal injury attorney from our firm can help you.
A defective hip implant can lead to very serious complications, including a fractured hip bone. The symptoms experienced by those who have had a defective implant include extreme pain, problems with the ability to walk or stand and severe swelling, limiting motion. The surgery to correct this problem is extremely painful and more complex than the original implant surgery. If you are the victim of a defective hip implant, whether you have a DePuy hip implant, Zimmer Cup or other brand, it is important that you protect your rights.
As with other products, it is expected that a medical implant will function as promised. There are several types of hip implants that have been recalled, and if you are suffering the repercussions of a defective implant, you should explore legal representation. At Sloan, Bagley, Hatcher, Perry, Runge, Robertson and Smith Law Firm, we are committed to assisting individuals harmed by defective hip implants.
