Ralph the Lawyer is currently investigating potential lawsuits on behalf of those who received a Metal-on-Metal (MoM) Hips and had to either have it removed, or are having side effects such as pain, popping, grinding or other difficulties.
Metal-on-metal hip systems have been marketed by many manufacturers as a better alternative to older ceramic and plastic artificial hips. Unfortunately, on many of these hips, the metal components start grinding together, shaving off dangerous metal debris into patient’s bodies.
The side effects of this hip failure include:
- Pain & Swelling in the hip
- Walking difficulty
- Lack of flexibility
- Popping, grinding sensation or squeaking of the hip implant
- Biomet® Metal-on-Metal Hips
