Hip replacement surgery is a major life event, even when all goes well. The recovery process can take 6 to 12 months and can be painful and debilitating. Patients will need to work hard to get full range of motion back. When something goes wrong and the hip implant fails prematurely, the patient will have to undergo the entire process again.
Defective hip implants can result in fractures of the hip bone, dislocation of the implant and other serious problems. When an implant fails, patients will experience severe pain, swelling of the hip and difficulty walking or standing. Revision surgery to correct the problem or replace the implant will be required.
Recovery from revision surgery tends to be much more painful and can take a lot longer. Our defective hip implant lawyers believe that if your implant fails prematurely, you should be compensated for much more than the cost of the second surgery. We can help you recover compensation for your time, pain and suffering, and decreased quality of life.
