Miami Product Defect Attorney Explains Faulty Hip Implants
Metal-on-metal hip implants are meant to help people who suffer from severe hip pain due to problems with their pelvic joints. However, the design of metal-on-metal hip implants may be defective and can lead to further injury and surgery for victims. In this video, Miami defective products attorney Mike Eidson describes how metal-on-metal hip implants can cause pain and suffering due to deficiencies in the design of the product. Our products liability attorneys serve clients nationwide from our office in Miami.
The problem with metal-on-metal is that we found out that as this begins to be used over a year or two, metal begins to grind off and it migrates into other parts of the body and then you don’t have a smooth surface anymore. It can also become loose and when that happens, it’s not useful anymore and the people start suffering a variety of problems. One of them is that they get pain and suffering again or they are disabled or the bone can actually break, but they ultimately find out by watching these people whether their condition has deteriorated to the point where they have the whole thing done again. So they have to go back in there, a person who is already 65, 70 years old, take the old one out and put a new one in which is called revision surgery. And that can have its own problems. The product should last 15 years. These problems are being found at 2 or 3 years so people are having to go through monitoring, they’ve got pain, it doesn’t work as well as it should, then the next step is to have revision surgery and then that will lead, we believe, to more frequent surgeries than you would have if there hadn’t been a defect in this system in the first place.
