Overview: Hip Replacement Complications Lead to Lawsuits

Metal on metal hip replacements have had reports of severe and debilitating side effects. Metal on metal hip replacement side effects include a higher risk of cancer due to toxic substances leaking from metal on metal implants, the degenerative heart disease cardiomyopathy, non-cancerous tumors surrounding the hip implant site which can cause pain, swelling inflammation and severe discomfort, and premature failure of the device requiring a complete replacement (ideally with a metal on plastic or metal on ceramic design.)

Tens of thousands of hip implant lawsuits have been filed by patients who suffered serious complications caused by failed devices.

Families who lost a loved one due to metal poisoning, cancer or cardiomyopathy may be eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit and payments from hip implant wrongful death lawsuits could amount to millions of dollars.

In addition, spouses of those afflicted with defective or metal on metal hip implants may be able to sue for “loss of consortium” which roughly translates into the loss of intimacy with their spouse due to hip replacement complications. Recently, hip implant lawsuits had spouses of metal on metal him implant victims listed as co-plaintiffs which may increase the award or settlement if they win their case.
