Some hip replacement models are documented to fail more than 50% of the time. Many people who currently have functioning hip replacements will experience side effects and problems long before the end of the expected lifetime of the hip implant (10 to 25 years depending on the type of implant used). Because of this, hip replacement manufacturers have set aside billions of dollars for current and future lawsuits.
Side Effects of Defective Hip Implants
Common side effects that result from early device failure include:
• Loosening of parts
• Difficulty walking
Manufacturers Under Investigation
Several hip implant manufacturers are currently under fire for releasing faulty hip replacement models. There are currently several active lawsuits against hip manufacturers including:
• DePuy Orthopedics
• Stryker Orthopedics
• Zimmer Holdings
• Wright Medical
