Metal on Metal Hip Replacement Recall
Hip replacement surgery is one of the most common elective operations performed by orthopaedic surgeons. It is normally a straightforward procedure, with excellent results for the patient, but in recent years there have been worries about the use of certain metal-on-metal (MOM) hip implants made by some manufacturers. Particular problems have been associated with the ASR and ASR XL hip replacement prostheses manufactured by DePuy, a division of Johnson & Johnson. In addition, certain other MOM joints made by other manufacturers have been the subject of partial recalls because of concerns over increased rates of failure of the joints.
If you have had a MOM hip replacement fitted and it has caused problems resulting in the need for the joint to be revised, we can help you claim for your disability and get you the medical attention you need to get your independence back. We are expert lawyers with an understanding of how vital it is to get you the much needed help and compensation to which you may be entitled.
Why make a claim?
If you have had a faulty MOM joint fitted, and have suffered subsequent problems due to early failure of the joint, you may be entitled to claim compensation. Early failure of a MOM hip means that your life has changed significantly and it can have a serious impact on your quality of life. We want to ensure you peace of mind, and the necessary assistance to allow you to enjoy life once more. Our specialist solicitors have years of experience of helping people who have been affected by the implantation of potentially faulty MOM hips..
Supporting your needs
As we have said failure of a MOM hip can be life-changing and brings about the need for many kinds of assistance to allow you to regain your quality of life. This could involve obtaining the equipment you require to keep your independence, and receiving the correct post-operative treatment to allow you to recover as soon as possible. In addition, your ability to work will be affected by the failure of your MOM hip, and we can assess the financial costs to you of being unable to work for a period, or changing employment. The financial impact of all these things can be substantial. This is why it is vital to make a claim so we can ensure you obtain the settlement you deserve and require to safeguard your future.
