Metal on Metal Hip Implant Litigation Consulting
Lawsuits have been brought against manufacturers such as Stryker Orthopedics, DePuy Orthopedics, Zimmer, Inc. and various other medical device manufacturers by patients who have suffered from medical complications due to metal on metal hip implants. Thousands of lawsuits have been filed by patients against these manufacturers, and the number of lawsuits is expected to continue to rise.
