Defective Hip Replacements

Recovering Compensation

Once we satisfy the burden of proof in your injury claim, you should receive compensation to help you deal with the economic and non-economic damages you’ve incurred. Economic damages can cover lost wages from being unable to return to work, the cost of medical bills you’ve incurred because of your injury, and more. Non-economic damages can compensate you for pain and suffering, a lower quality of life, and other non-monetary damages you’ve incurred.

When choosing an attorney, you want one with experience and a degree of specialization in a given field of law. Goldstein & Greco has decades of experience representing clients who’ve been made a victim of medical malpractice and defective medical devices. We’re here to provide you with the seasoned and skilled legal representation you deserve.

As many of us get older, we require hip replacement surgery to help us continue enjoying life to the fullest of our ability. Unfortunately, hip replacements, like many other medical devices, don’t always work as intended. If you had a hip replacement implanted and you’re now experiencing pain or were otherwise injured due to a defective hip replacement, please don’t hesitate to speak with a competent Buffalo hip replacement lawyer from Goldstein & Greco to learn more about how we can help.

Who's to Blame?

Common Hip Replacements Injuries

As you can imagine, a defective hip replacement can lead to a wide range of injuries. Just some of the most common injuries we see from dangerous hip replacements are as follows:

  • Fractures
  • Infections
  • Dislocation of the hip
  • Blood clots after surgery
  • Loosening of the hip implant
  • Nerve damage
  • Having one leg shorter than the other
  • Metallosis or osteolysis

 

Sometimes, hip replacement injuries aren’t always outwardly apparent, which is why you should pay attention to the various symptoms associated with a potential hip replacement injury. Some of the most common symptoms of these injuries are as follows:

  • Hip pain or stiffness
  • Inflammation
  • Constant popping or squeaking in your hip
  • Metallosis symptoms, like bone loss, metallic taste in the mouth, vision/hearing problems, or impaired cognition
  • Having trouble walking or standing up

Recalled Hip Replacements

When a product is recalled by a manufacturer, it means the product was deemed unsafe in some way. Unfortunately, thousands of hip replacements have been recalled in years past, and tens of thousands of lawsuits against hip replacement companies are currently pending. Just some of the more prominent recalled hip replacements are as follows:

  • Durom Cup (Zimmer)
  • Rejuvenate & ABG II (Stryker)
  • ASR Acetabular & Resurfacing System (DePuy)
  • R3 Acetabular Hip Systems (Smith & Nephew)

You should note, however, that even if your hip replacement wasn’t recalled, it doesn’t mean you don’t have a valid lawsuit. As long as we can prove that you were harmed as a direct result of a defective hip replacement, you should qualify for compensation.

Over the last five years, you have fought tooth and nail on our behalf. You have put so much time and effort into our case. I never doubted you or that I made the right decision in having you represent us.

Your Initial Consultation

An accident of any kind is devastating, but fortunately, most accidents leave a trail of evidence behind that a skilled personal injury lawyer can use to prove a future personal injury claim. If possible, you should do what you can to document your accident and then bring all relevant information to your initial consultation with our firm. This can include:

  • Pictures or videos of your accident
  • Witness statements/contact information
  • Your insurance information
  • The other party’s insurance information
  • Any record of correspondence you may have had with the other party’s insurance company
  • Any history you have had with filing personal injury claims in the past
  • Medical documentation and bills associated with your injuries

File Today

The moment you’re injured in an accident, the clock starts ticking on your personal injury claim. New York State has a statute of limitations in place, which means that if you wait too long to bring a claim, you’ll likely permanently lose your right to do so. This is why it’s paramount that you retain the services of a competent personal injury lawyer as soon after the date of your accident as you can.
