Smith and Nephew Hip Replacement Lawsuits

The Drug Injury Legal Group lawyers have been investigating potential injury lawsuits due to defective Smith and Nephew hip implants.  Our hip replacement lawyers are looking into Smith and Nephew R3 acetabular system hip implants.  Smith and Nephew recalled the R3 acetabular system after receiving numerous reports of serious injury due to a defect in the product.  Because of the injuries and the recall, hip replacement lawsuits are being filed for damages throughout the country.


 Smith and Nephew Hip Replacement Lawyers

Our hip replacement lawyers begin a Smith and Nephew investigation by initially determining whether you actually received the recalled product.  In this case, the recalled hip carries this label:

  • Smith and Nephew R3 Acetabular System

Once a determination is made that the recalled product was implanted in you, our hip recall lawyers determine if a case can be brought against Smith and Nephew. If it can, a hip replacement lawsuit would be filed seeking compensation for the injuries that were caused by the defective product.  In order for our lawyers to determine if a case can be brought the relevant medical records would need to be ordered and reviewed.  Our hip implant lawyers front the costs of the investigation into the Smith and Nephew hip.  This means that there is no charge to you if we don’t get money for you in a settlement of jury verdict.

Smith and Nephew Hip Replacement Problems

The Smith and Nephew hip liner can cause a wide spectrum of problems for those who were implanted with this defective product.  One of the most serious problems that the Smith and Nephew hip can cause is known as metallosis.  Metallosis is a type of poisoning resulting from too much metal being in a person’s body.  This is a very serious problem and should be dealt with immediately.  Some symptoms that may arise because of metallosis are:

  • Blindness
  • Deafness
  • Headaches

Who Is Eligible Smith and Nephew Hip Replacement Lawsuit

If you or anyone you know has experienced any injury as a result of the Smith and Nephew Hip Implant, our lawyers would like to evaluate the facts of the case to determine eligibility for a Smith and Nephew Hip Replacement lawsuit.  In March 2012, the FDA decided to investigate whether action should be taken to mitigate the damage that was potentially being caused by the Smith and Nephew Hip.  The FDA took two days to consult with doctors, consultants and other experts to determine if action should be taken against Smith and Nephew.  At the time of this action, there were roughly 8000 patients with the Smith and Nephew Hip implant.  In reaction to the FDA, Smith & Nephew recalled the hip implant while still maintaining that the hip implant was safe.

If you suffered injury that you believe was caused by the Smith and Nephew hip implant, our lawyers would like to evaluate the facts of your case to determine if you could be eligible to file a Smith and Nephew lawsuit. Contact us today for a free case evaluation.
