Knee & Hip Replacement

Knee & Hip Replacement Attorneys in Birmingham

Helping Victims Win the Compensation They Deserve

Knee and hip replacements are very common for Americans over the age of 50, as well as for those who have suffered an injury requiring reconstructive surgery. While many replacement products are excellent and restore motion and life after joint degeneration or injury, other products are defective and have resulted in severe complications for victims. Our attorneys at Montgomery Ponder, are part of an ongoing investigation and lawsuit representing victims who’ve suffered from these poorly designed products.

Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement Lawsuits

In the 1990s and early 2000s, metal-on-metal (MoM) hip replacements became very widespread and popular due to the promised increase in durability and longevity. Unfortunately, these products came with an unforeseen and destructive side effect: the friction of the metal ball rubbing in the joint socket released a constant stream of minute metal particles into the bloodstream.

This resulted in victims suffering from numerous side effects, including:

  • Metallosis (blood poisoning from metal)
  • Pain
  • Joint loosening
  • The need for premature revision surgery

Lawsuits have been ongoing against the leading manufacturers of MoM hip replacements, including Zimmer Bonnet, DuPuy Orthopaedics, Smith & Nephew, Stryker, and Wright Medical. If you or a loved one have suffered the trauma and pain associated with these products, we can help you file a lawsuit and recover the compensation you deserve.

Faulty Knee Replacements

It has come to light over the last several years that several popular knee replacement devices were faulty, and thousands of patients had to undergo invasive revision surgery. The result: thousands of lawsuits against leading manufacturers DuPuy, Zimmer, B. Raun, and Arthrex Inc.

If you or your loved ones have suffered from failing hip or knee replacements, you may be eligible to recover compensation for your extended medical costs, pain, suffering, and other damages. Our attorneys at Montgomery Ponder, have extensive experience litigating cases involving defective drugs and medical devices, and we are here to help.
