Metal-On-Metal Hip Replacement Claims

Corin Cormet Hip Replacement Claims

If you or a loved one has suffered problems after being fitted with a Corin Cormet Hip Replacement System, our solicitors can help you claim the compensation you deserve.

The Corin Cormet Hip Replacement System is a type of metal-on-metal hip replacement device, manufactured by Corin Ltd, and offers both a resurfacing implant and a total hip replacement. However, evidence from the National Joint Registry suggests that this system has not been performing as it should and in some cases has failed far sooner than expected.

We are bringing claims arising from the Corin Cormet Hip Replacement System, which it is alleged has resulted in a number of people experiencing:

  • Pain and discomfort
  • Loss of mobility
  • The need for more surgery to replace the Corin Cormet implant
  • Complications arising as a result of or during further surgery
  • Ongoing loss of function and/or pain and discomfort following revision surgery

If you or a loved one has experienced any of the above issues after having a Corin Cormet Hip Replacement System fitted, then you may be entitled to claim compensation.

We have decades of experience in dealing with claims for defective medical products, including a significant amount of expertise in metal-on-metal hip replacement claims - including claims specifically related to the Corin Cormet system. This expertise is recognised at the highest level - we have been appointed to the Claimant's Steering Committee for Corin Metal-on-Metal Hip Litigation by the High Court.

Not only are we the right team to help you get the compensation you deserve, we also recognise the importance of rehabilitation in allowing you to make as full a recovery as possible. We can help you get access to the rehabilitation you need - even while your case is still ongoing.

If you have any questions about your Corin Cormet Hip Replacement and the possibility of making a claim, call us today on 0800 121 6567, or contact us online, for a free initial consultation on your situation. We'll talk you through all your options and there is no obligation to continue after this first call.

    • What Is A Group Claim, And What Are The Benefits?
    • When an entire line of medical products is defective, many people may suffer injuries as a result. In these situations, it is possible to make a group claim to ensure you and your fellow victims are fully and fairly compensated for your trauma.

      In some cases a group action may be appropriate way for the court to manage a number of similar claims together without having a trial of each individual claim. Group actions can help people to share legal expertise as well as the cost by working together, to try and maximise the chances of being fully and fairly compensated for your trauma.

      We have extensive experience in pursuing group actions relating to many different types of claim, including for defective products, drugs and medical devices.

      The expertise and results achieved for our clients means that Irwin Mitchell is the most highly ranked personal injury firm in the UK by two independent leading legal reviews.

      If you're unsure about whether making a group claim is right for you, it's best to seek some advice. contact us and we'll be able to advise you on the options.


    • What's The Claims Process?
    • To make a compensation claim for an injury or illness caused by a defective medical product, the first thing you need to do is get in touch with us for a free consultation. We'll discuss what's happened to you, advise you on whether or not we think you can claim, and work out whether you could benefit from a No Win No Fee* arrangement.

      If you do decide to make a claim with us, we'll usually follow the same three stages:

      1. Investigation. We'll begin by determining the extent of your injury or illness, and any losses that you may experience as a result. This may involve an examination carried out by a medical expert.
      2. Compensation. We'll work out how much compensation you should get based on the severity of your injuries, your pain and suffering, any medical expenses you've had, and your ability to get back to work. We'll put this amount to your opponent, and they can either accept or contest your claim.
      3. Conclusion. If your opponent accepts liability, you'll be awarded compensation. If not, court proceedings will begin.

        Starting proceedings doesn't mean that your claim will definitely go to trial. Instead, it means that the court will put a timetable in place and manage your claim towards trial. There is still the possibility for your opponent to settle.

        If you do have to go to court, we'll be there to support you every step of the way. If we agreed to handle your claim under a No Win No Fee* arrangement, then you won't have to pay anything if you are unsuccessful.

      If you have any questions about the claims process, please contact us today on 0800 121 6567 for your free initial consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who Can Make A Corin Cormet Hip Replacement Claim?

If you or a loved one has experienced pain, discomfort, loss of mobility or any other problems that appear to be related to the fitting of a Corin Cormet Hip Replacement System, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

This could relate to problems that developed as a result of the surgery to fit the device, issues caused by the device itself, or complications that arose following the need to have more surgery to remove a faulty Corin Cormet Hip Replacement System.

As well as receiving compensation due to you for the fitting of a faulty medical device, if you are in need of care and rehabilitation services as a result of the injuries you have suffered, we can help you access these services.

If you personally have been affected, you typically have up to three years from the date you developed problems relating to the fitting of the defective medical device in which to make a claim. Claims arising from defective products also have to be brought within 10 years of the product going into circulation, so it is important to seek legal advice on this.

Exceptions can sometimes be made in respect of the three year time-limit, but these are judged on a case-by-case basis by the courts, so get in touch if you're unsure. The 10 year time-limit however cannot be extended. Call us today on 0800 121 6567, or contact us online, for a free consultation about your claim.

What Problems Has The Corin Cormet Hip Replacement System Caused?

One of the most common reported complications of the Corin Cormet Hip Replacement System is an 'adverse reaction to metal debris' (ARMD). This is due to wear from the metal-on-metal hip device, causing tiny particles of metal to be deposited in the joint and surrounding tissue. This can cause significant injury if the soft tissues around the hip joint are damaged, with associated pain and discomfort

In extreme cases, the hip can become unstable leading to dislocations and other complications that severely impair mobility and cause a great deal of pain.

According to the National Joint Registry, the failure rate for the Corin Cormet resurfacing system exceeds the threshold set by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE), the body that regulates medical device use in England and Wales. A high failure rate means an increased chance of needing further surgery to correct the problem, and extra surgery can mean further pain and discomfort and the risk of additional complications.

If you or a loved one has experienced any of these issues following the fitting of a Corin Cormet Hip Replacement System, call us today on 0800 121 6567, or contact us online, for a free no-obligation conversation about whether you can make a claim, and what your options are.
