New Jersey Defective Hip Replacement Lawyer

Before you had a hip replacement, you may have heard about hip replacement recalls. However, you may have been led to believe that the hip replacement you were going to receive was perfectly safe. Now, however, you have learned that your hip replacement has been recalled. You may or may not have experienced complications. You may or may not have already had surgery to replace the recalled hip replacement. Wherever you are in this situation, we urge you to contact an experienced product liability and medical malpractice attorney promptly.

At Britcher Leone, LLC, we are prepared to evaluate and, if appropriate, litigate cases involving recalled replacement hips. Manufacturers of recalled hip replacements include:

  • DePuy
  • Smith & Nephew
  • Stryker

Each of these manufacturers has issued recalls of hip replacement systems or components. Metal-on-metal products resulted in complications for some patients after metallic particles built up in their blood streams. Specific recent recalls were as follows:

  • In August, 2010, DePuy issued a voluntary recall of its ASR™ Hip System.
  • In June, 2012, Smith & Nephew recalled the optional metal liner, or cup, component of its R3 Acetabular System.
  • In July, 2012, Stryker recalled its Rejuvenate and ABG II modular hip implant systems.

If you are already set to undergo repeat hip implant surgery to replace a recalled hip replacement system or component, be sure to ask to have the part that is removed saved for possible use in a lawsuit if needed. Contact us to learn how we can help you determine whether you have a viable claim for additional compensation beyond the repeat surgery.
