Hip Implants & Replacements
If you’ve been fitted with a faulty hip implant then you may be entitled to compensation. What’s more this will often be on a no win no fee basis! The life span of an implant should be in the region of up to 15 years. However, some are failing after just a couple of years, resulting in further pain and cost in having them replaced. At Applebys we have experts experienced in dealing with these types of medical claims.
Problems with hip implants have in recent years centered on a number of types of implant including some metal on metal devices. There have been recalls for the De Puy ASR XL Acetabular System and the ASR Hip Resurfacing System. Particles of metal from the implants (cobalt/chrome) have led to damage to surrounding tissue and contributed to non cancerous tumours. In many cases this has resulted in significant pain. Some other types of hip implants have also failed and caused problems.
Symptoms can include:
• Difficulty when walking
• Pain or swelling around the hips
• A clicking noise from the hip
• A loss of sensation around the hip area
• Tissue damage
If you have experienced any of the symptoms above and have received a hip implant within the last 8 years then contact us now. We specialise in clinical negligence cases and we will be able to quickly advice you if you have a case and help you get the compensation you deserve. And don’t forget we can usually act on a no win no fee basis.
