Have You Undergone Undue Hardship and Pain
Due to a Defective Hip Replacement Part?
After a hip replacement surgery, it commonly takes patients six months to a year after surgery to get most of their range of motion restored. This painful rehabilitation requires work on a daily basis, with no guarantees at the end of having a completely functioning hip. With so many natural challenges inherent in hip replacement, the last thing you want is to undergo the surgery again because of a failure in your implant.

The Gertler Law Firm: Helping You Regain Your Quality of Life
There are a variety of factors that influence your case—what your original diagnosis was, whether you had a partial or full hip replacement, your age and activity level, the severity of your symptoms, and much more. We’ll go through each step of the process with you, ensuring that you understand exactly what the law says about the duties and responsibilities of hip implant manufacturers. And we only work on a contingency basis—meaning we only get paid if you receive compensation.
Three of the most important elements of your case are:
- Who manufactured your hip implant, and whether or not they issued a recall;
- Whether or not additional surgery was or will be required; and
- What was the reason for the implant’s failure.
Don’t worry if you don’t have these answers yet. We can work with doctors and examine your medical records to gather all necessary information. The important thing is that you realize you have recourse for the difficulties you’ve gone through, and you can start learning about your options today.
You’ve already gone through the long and painful process of having your hip replaced. You knew about the complications involved…. that it would involve some risks on your part. But what should never be a risk is the quality of the implant used.
