Products Liability – Defective Hip Implant

We represented a middle-aged man who underwent bilateral hip replacement.  The hip replacement hardware implemented was a metal-on-metal design that was later discovered to have multiple design flaws and defects. As a result of the device’s defects, our client had to undergo additional revision surgeries and medical treatment.  We filed suit in federal court against the manufacturer of the product.  After filing suit, our case was consolidated with other cases in a multidistrict litigation (MDL).  The case was settled with the manufacturer during litigation for over $500,000.
