There are several manufacturers who produce hip replacement devices including Wright Medical Technology Incorporated. These medical devices such as the Wright Profemur® Total Hip Systems were designed with an interchangeable neck made with titanium. There have been many reported problems among patients who have had their hip replaced with these metal-on-metal devices. Reported issues include loosening the hip system, a fractured or dislocated hip system, soft tissue damage or metal particles released into a patient's bloodstream. Given the increasing number of reported injuries and side effects in the U.S. involving defective hip implants, medical device attorneys across the country are filing lawsuits on behalf of the victims. If you've had your hip replaced and had to undergo additional surgery, or if you've experienced an injury or harm caused by the Wright Profemur® Total Hip System or a similar device, consult a personal injury attorney immediately to discuss your case. Lawsuits are being filed against the manufactures, and victims are being awarded monetary compensation to recover damages such as pain and suffering and medical costs.
