Smith & Nephew R3 Acetabular System Hip Recall Lawyers

Smith & Nephew R3 Acetabular System Hip Recall Lawyers

Our Michigan Smith & Nephew hip recall lawsuit attorneys are actively handling cases for patients suffering complications from the Smith & Nephew R3 Acetabular System hip device. Due to its association with hip implant dislocation, infection, and bone fracture that required revision surgery, the R3 System was recalled in 2012 by Smith & Nephew.  A patient harmed by this recalled hip device may be entitled to compensation.

Over 7,000 patients have received the R3 System implant device.  However, a number of these patients have already undergone a revision surgery due to the defective device. In fact, a recent study revealed that patients who had the R3 hip implant were 60% more likely to require revision surgery to repair the device.

Due to the fact that Smith & Nephew placed the R3 Acetabular on the market that is dangerous for the patient, the company may be held liable for damages caused by the device.   Patients who have suffered significant injuries from the recalled Smith & Nephew R3 hip replacement device do have legal rights to file a Michigan hip recall lawsuit against the manufacturer.  The lawsuits seek damages for pain and suffering, all medical costs incurred to date, medical expenses for any future treatment or surgery, lost wages, spousal damages, and punitive damages.

Some of most common complications associated with the R3 Acetabular hip implant include, but not limited to:

  • Pain/difficulty walking
  • Metallosis (metal poisoning)
  • Hip Implant Dislocation
  • Infection
  • Bone Fracture
