Michigan Hip Revision Surgery Lawyers | MI Hip Replacement Revision Attorney
A hip revision is corrective surgery on a patient who has already had a hip replacement but is having serious complications with the original implant and needs to have it removed and replaced. The artificial devices that most often require revision surgery are metal-on-metal hip replacements. When a patient undergoes a second revision surgery due to suffering serious complications from first implant, they do have legal rights and may be able to sue the medical device manufacturer for their pain and suffering, medical bills, and other damages.
At the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, our Michigan hip replacement lawyers frequently represent hip replacement patients who have undergone a revision surgery due to serious complications. We are currently accepting cases for all types of metal-on-metal hip systems developed by DePuy Orthopaedics, Stryker Orthopaedics, Zimmer Holdings, Smith & Nephew, Wright Medical Technology, and Biomet. If you or someone you know suffered serious injuries or complications from a hip replacement and had a hip revision surgery performed, you may have a defective medical device case and may be able to collect pain and suffering damages that frequently result in significant settlements.

Do You Have a Michigan Hip Replacement Revision Lawsuit?
Patients undergoing a revision surgery after suffering serious injuries and complications from a metal-on-metal hip replacement, do have legal rights and may have a possible lawsuit against the manufacturer that produced the defective medical device. In fact, due to the manufacturers’ failure to not only produce a safe product but fail to warn individuals of the defective and dangerous nature of the artificial limb device, they may be held liable for those who suffer complications.
