Metal on Metal on Hip Implants

Metal-on-metal hip implant cases.

Yaeger Law is handling several different metal-on-metal hip implant cases. Over the last five years, the failure rate of metal-on-metal hip implants has been on the rise. Thousands of hip implant patients have suffered devastating injuries including chronic pain, metal toxicity (increased levels of Chromium and Cobalt), tissue damage, bone damage, dislocation, pseudotumor, metallosis, and revision surgery. The FDA has recalled a number of metal-on-metal hip implants while others remain on the market. Tens of thousands of lawsuits have been filed across the nation holding the manufacturers of metal-on-metal hip implants accountable.

If you or a loved one had hip implant surgery and experienced complications, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact Yaeger Law to discuss the details of your potential metal-on-metal hip implant lawsuit.
