Metal-on-metal hip implants were a widely used hip replacement implant used on patients.
There are an increasing number of cases where it can be shown the implant is faulty and caused problems over time, or worn-out at a quicker rate than anticipated.
Claiming Compensation For Injuries Caused By Faulty Metal-On-Metal Hip Implants
The most common issue with metal-on-metal hip implants is the release of metal ion particles into the bloodstream. This can lead to serious soft tissue swelling and other severe problems.
Common injuries, experiences and pain areas:
- Loss of sensation or numbness in the leg and groin
- Experiencing a grinding or clunking sensation
- Struggling to walk
- Soft tissue and bone destruction
- Fractures and general damage to bones
- Formation of pseudo tumours
- Other systemic effects
If you are currently experiencing any of the above, we recommend that you seek immediate medical attention and visit your GP.
