Hip Implants Attorneys in Flowood

Suffered Injury from a Hip Replacement in Jackson, MS? Call Our Firm.

Hip replacement is among the most commonly performed orthopedic surgeries in the United States with nearly 300,000 procedures performed each year. When the hip replacement product is defective, serious injury can result. Shelton Davis, PLLC represents clients who have been harmed by implants made by the manufacturers DePuy and Stryker. If you were harmed by these devices, contact our law firm to speak with a Flowood product liability lawyer.

Hip Replacement Devices from DePuy & Stryker

When devices have significant problems, patients may be at risk for significant injury. A Flowood personal injury attorney from our firm may be able to file a product liability lawsuit on your behalf. Hip replacement devices from the manufacturers DePuy and Stryker have been recalled by the FDA, resulting in product liability lawsuits, as the manufacturers continued to manufacture and sell metal-on-metal devices after they were aware that they had the potential to cause harm to patients.

Devices from each manufacturer have specific issues, which include:

  • DePuy Hip Replacement Devices – A recall was issued on these devices in 2010 due to metal particles wearing away and causing inflammation and pain.
  • Stryker Trident Implants – These hip replacement devices were recalled in 2007. Problems included staph bacteria contamination, squeaking and popping sounds coming from the device, and device parts failing to maintain their integrity.

The devices from both manufacturers are metal-on-metal replacement joints. This design raises the risk of metal particles wearing off the device and causing pain, swelling, inflammation, and possible damage to the surrounding tissues. Additionally, as the joints wear down, there is an increased risk of dislocation of the joint and other health complications from the metal ions, including problems of the thyroid, heart, and nervous systems.
