Over 450,000 hip replacement surgeries have been performed every year. Hip replacement surgery can be the difference between someone spending the rest of their life immobile and in pain and getting a second chance at living a normal life. Hip replacements are considered to be among the most successful surgical procedures performed in the medical field. However, an increasing number of patients require revision surgery to correct complications caused by defective hip implants.
If you required revision surgery due to a defective hip implant, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit against the defective medical device’s manufacturer. To find a qualified lawyer who can help you file a lawsuit, contact The Guardian Legal Network.
