Oxford Defective Hip Replacement Lawyers
We Can Help You Get Back On Your Feet
When Hip Replacements fail, the fallout for the patient can be costly and painful. Often, the only way to fix the problem is having a corrective surgery performed. These additional surgeries expose the patient to additional risks and stress which can sometimes lead to death. Many people are not even able to have the corrective surgery due to concerns about their ability to tolerate operation. These individuals are forced to “just live with the pain” caused by the defective hip implant.
An experienced Oxford defective hip replacement attorney can help you recover damages after suffering from a botched operation. These are serious injuries, and the victims deserve suitable compensation for their pain and suffering.
Patients who have had a Hip Replacement fail or malfunction, may be entitled to monetary damages, including:
- The cost of corrective surgery

- Physical therapy
- Pain and suffering
- Cost of medications to treat infection
- Wrongful death benefits

Growing Concerns Regarding Hip Replacements
Unfortunately, the news about Hip Implants seems to be getting worse as more data becomes available about the side effects and failure rates of these popular medical devices. A recent New York Times article stated that “The Food and Drug Administration responded to mounting concerns about the safety of metal-on-metal hip implants… saying it would subject the devices to a two-day expert review that could lead to new standards.”
Currently, those with metal on metal hip devices could face the following complications:
- Device failure
- Need for replacement surgery
- Bone or tissue damage
In addition, some patients may experience vision or hearing problems, thyroid dysfunction, and more.
