Currently, there are two main hip and knee replacement manufacturers against whom claims are being filed for their defective medical implants:
Depuy Hip Implant Claims
The Depuy ASR Hip Replacement System has a high failure rate due to its defective design and manufacturing. The company recently issued a voluntary recall of its hip replacement system as the defective implant has been associated with releasing high levels of metal ions which can damage tissue and cause pseudo tumors. If you have had a hip replacement after 2003 and are experiencing pain, it is important to contact your surgeon or the hospital where your surgery was performed to determine if a Depuy ASR Hip Replacement System was used.
Zimmer NextGen Knee Implant Claims
Zimmer NextGen Knee Implants that utilize a cementless surgical technique have also been associated with a high failure rate; however, the company has not issued a knee replacement recall (as of November 2010). Despite this, claims are still being filed against the company for what is believed to be a faulty porous femoral component associated with painful loosening and knee replacement failure. Problems with the Zimmer NextGen cementless knee implants have lead to unnecessary pain and revision surgeries.
It is important not to sign any documents for either of these companies, even if your doctor asks you to. Please seek legal advice from an experienced Dallas/Fort Worth product liability attorney before you sign any legal documents.
