Drug Law Center is actively involved in the litigation of hip replacement lawsuits involving various devices for clients across the country. Our attorneys know the devastation that may accompany complications related to a poorly designed or recalled hip implant device.
While there may be similarities between artificial hip implants and the ensuing complications from individual components or an entire metal-on-metal hip system, our attorneys are always mindful of the impact on the individual.
We recognize the responsibility we have to our clients who have truly had their lives forever changed due to a defective hip implant. From the time we are retained, we always attempt to make the claims and litigation process as smooth as possible for our clients. In addition to having a specific attorney assigned to your case who will provide you with regular case updates, we also have a support staff member dedicated to serving your needs and will work to gather all of your medical records, documentation and even help you locate a physician in your area who may have experience with your particular need.
All of our hip implant lawsuits are exclusively handled on a contingency fee basis where a fee is earned only upon a successful resolution of the case for you. There are no out-of-pocket expenses to hire our firm or to consult with for an individualized case evaluation.

Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement Complications
Metal-on-metal hip replacement devices were introduced to the market as a superior alternative to traditional hip prosthetic devices that were typically comprised of multiple materials. Unfortunately, soon after metal-on-metal hip replacements were implanted, large percentages of patients developed pain and medical complications.
As opposed to the promise of a pain-free life and resumed activity, many patients with metal hip implants are now facing a life of complications and uncertainty. Patients with metal hips are now dealing with situations where they have complications such as: dislodged devices, metal poisoning, systemic problems, and limited mobility. For the impacted patients they will likely need to be medically monitored and/or endure a hip revision surgery to remove their devices.
Various device manufacturers have many different models of metal hip replacements that have been on the market over the past decade. Drug Law Center appreciates your frustration and anger and is committed to protecting your legal rights related to a claim against the manufacturer. Our team is currently reviewing potential claims for people who have any type of metal-on-metal hip that is of concern to the individual.
