When your hip is injured by certain accident or certain diseases, particularly arthritis, you can attempt at your hip recovery through arthroplasty, or hip replacement surgery. This surgery is done by replacing damaged bone in your hip with artificial bone made from metallic material. The metallic device itself has shelf life specified by its failure rate. The lower its failure rate, the more reliable it is and the longer its shelf life is. Normally, such replacement device can last around fifteen years, but many devices wear before such specified age. The failure rate of that device remains considered reasonable as long as it is not too high. If, for instance, the device that is used in your arthroplasty surgery wears before its specified shelf life ends, the company that manufactures that device will compensate for the fee that you have to pay to undergo hip recall surgery.
Theoretically, this compensation should free you from any obligations to pay for the surgery; however, in many cases, patients who undergo this surgery often have to pay more than the compensation can provide. In addition, they also suffer extreme loss because of the pain that in fact they don’t have to suffer. For this reason, many of them regard the compensation provided by the company as fraudulent. Some of them even think that the company deliberately promotes its failing products to its clients. This becomes an obvious reason why many patients think that the company has actually done an illegal activity through its selling of failing products. If you also think the same, you can try to settle this problem through legal way.
Conducting a lawsuit to get this problem settled is not an easy task. Many companies that sell products for arthroplasty often have powerful legal support. For this reason, you have to hire depuy hip recall lawyer to assist you in your lawsuit.
