GEORGIA DEFECTIVE HIP IMPLANT LAWYER
Across the country, lawsuits have been filed against companies that have manufactured hip implants, for allegedly causing severe injuries or worsened their medical conditions. Some of the injury victims have had to subsequent surgeries to repair the damages caused, driving up the costs of treatment, and causing additional pain and emotional anguish.
Some of the companies that have been targeted in the lawsuits include Johnson & Johnson (DePuy ASR Hip Implant), Stryker Orthopedics (Rejuvenate and ABG II), Biomet (M2a metal-on-metal). All of these companies face thousands of lawsuits, where plaintiffs are alleging that these companies failed to give warnings about the risks.
WHAT DO THE LAWSUITS ALLEGE?
In many of the complaints, plaintiffs report that the companies focused heavily on marketing the product to consumers, without informing them of the risks, or prevent the usage where safer alternatives were available.
Other complaints alleged from defective hip implant lawsuits include:
- Corrosion and deterioration of the metal product
- Failure to warn medical practitioners and patients about the dangers
- Heavy metal toxicity, which can lead to bone and tissue damage
- High or premature rate of failure
- Compensation being sought for revision surgeries
One of the most overwhelming effects of a defective implant is the added time and expense of having to undergo revision surgeries and repeated treatments for repairing the damage. Many of the plaintiffs in these cases have filed lawsuits for this very reason. If you have suffered from complications due to a defective implant, it is your right to seek compensation for economic losses, which may include the cost of treatment, pain and suffering, and wages lost due to an inability to work.

D. Nicole Mims
I was involved in a vehicle accident August 15, 2012. When the accident happened I called another large firm in the Atlanta area. Eventually my case was referred to Mr. Jason Schneider. Once Mr. Schneider received my case everything began to change and I felt like he was working in my favor. Mr. Schneider did an excellent job of dealing with the insurance company and getting them to pay what was owed to me. Mr. Schneider helped me when my situation became an emergency. He made sure I understood what would happen with my case financially if I went ahead with the emergency surgery. The surgery would basically take all the money that the insurance would pay and I may still owe some money. In the end I was surprised to receive an email a year later saying that I had a checking waiting for me at Mr. Schneider’s office. I had completely accepted the fact that I would not receive anything but my back would be somewhat better. If you are searching for an attorney who is going to work in your favor and make sure you know what’s going on with your case I suggest you call Mr. Jason Schneider right now.
