Knee And 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 those who have suffered injuries 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, LLC, 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)
- Joint loosening
- The need for premature revision surgery
Lawsuits have been ongoing against the leading manufacturers of MoM hip replacements, including Zimmer Biomet, DePuy Orthopaedics, Smith+Nephew, Stryker and Wright Medical. If you or a loved one has 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 various popular knee replacement devices were faulty, and thousands of patients had to undergo invasive revision surgery. The result: thousands of lawsuits against leading manufacturers DePuy, Zimmer, B. Braun and Arthrex.
