Replacement Recall Updates continue to bring bad news. Numerous patients who have received metal-on-metal hip implants are suffering from implant loosening, severe pain, and other side effects. A free report is now available to help them avoid costly errors as they try to get compensation.
Tens of thousands of patients have received hip implants that are affected by the DePuy Hip Replacement Recall. In addition, patients have implants involved in the Zimmer Hip Recall. But it doesn’t end there. Other metal on metal hip implants are also implicated in early failure and metal toxicity, including the DePuy Pinnacle implant, Wright hip implants, and more.
When these hip implants fail, they require painful “revision” surgery to replace the failed hip implants. In the meantime, they may also have caused permanent damage to their bones and ligaments surrounding their hip implants.
In addition, one of the most insidious problems of metal to metal implants is metal toxicity, which does not always have symptoms that are easily recognized. The implants involved in the current lawsuits are primarily of the metal-on-metal variety, in which the metal on metal friction causes metal particles to enter the surrounding tissue, resulting in metal toxicity. To stop this process, the hip implants need to be replace.
The patients affected by a hip replacement recall or by any defective hip, recalled or not, deserve to be compensated. However, many have questions about what to do.
The newly revised Hip Recall Report, available free of charge, is designed to answer some of these questions, especially those related to metal toxicity, and to help patients affected by the hip replacement recall avoid some of the biggest mistakes that could derail their recall compensation case.
According to Robert M. Clarke, coordinator of the Hip Recall Help Team, it is vitally important for patients to be well informed, and to get help from a competent lawyer. Their advice includes the following:
“It’s crucial to keep proper records about your case,” Clarke adds. “Make sure you have copies of all your medical records and keep them in a safe place.”
How would someone know if their hip implant is affected? Many patients have been informed by their health care provider. But some have not.
Typical symptoms include pain, swelling, difficulty walking, and more, especially if they occur long after the surgery, or if they have gotten worse after some initial improvement.
However, metal toxicity for example doesn’t necessarily come with those typical symptoms, which is why it is important to be on the lookout for more subtle symptoms that can easily be mistaken for something else. In fact, anyone who has a metal-on-metal hip replacement needs to have their blood checked for levels of Cobalt and Chromium.
Affected patients also need to find out what they have to do to get compensated. “The most important part is to avoid the seven biggest mistakes that have derailed many medical malpractice cases,” he adds, “and in our free special report, you’ll find out what they are and how to avoid them.”
The Hip Replacement Recall report on how to avoid those seven mistakes is available free of charge at the following website: HipReplacementRecall2010.com
Patients who request the report will also have an opportunity to receive a free evaluation of their case, and, if they qualify, they will be eligible for free legal advice by a competent team of lawyers.
