Brown Paindiris & Scott, LLP, is available to evaluate your potential hip implant litigation case. We advise and represent clients who have been injured through implants of defective hip replacement products, including DePuy and Stryker Orthopedics hip replacements. Both companies have issued product recalls regarding particular hip implant systems. Stryker issued a recall after patients who had the metal-on-metal hip replacement implanted in their bodies experienced chronic pain and bloodstream contamination.
Stryker has also recalled its Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implant systems. Rejuvenate has ceramic and titanium components. Some patients have experienced necrosis in the hip joint, death of certain cells in the pelvic area, and elevated levels of chromium, cobalt and titanium, indicative of metallosis.
Discovering The Facts Of Your Case
If you are unsure as to what type of hip implant product you received in surgery at a Connecticut hospital, experienced lawyers at Brown Paindiris & Scott, LLP, can find out for you. We can recommend the next steps you should take if you may be eligible to recover compensation for your injuries.
Above all, you deserve quality medical care. You need doctors who will pay attention to your symptoms and take seriously the pain and suffering that you have experienced. Your physician(s) should let you know what your medical options are to improve your situation. You may require additional surgery — meaning more pain and suffering, and more expenses. Likewise, you need an attorney who will listen and explain your legal options in plain English.
You may be wonder whether you should seek redress through your doctor or through Stryker if you are suffering chronic pain or a blood disorder after receiving a hip implant. Our law firm cautions you against taking these steps without a lawyer's advice. Brown Paindiris & Scott, LLP, offers initial consultations at no charge.
