ENCORE® HIP REPLACEMENT AND REVISION RECALL
Encore® Hip Replacement Lawsuits, Problems, Recalls and Claims.
The attorneys at TheLawFirm.com may be the only California-based defective product law firm handling Encore hip lawsuits. Why is this important? Because the company responsible for the Encore® hip system is a California-based orthopedics company. This enables us, as a California-based defective medical products law firm, to bring claims through the California Court system, against the Encore® company for the damages suffered by its victims.
Lawyers from other states that are not licensed in California may not have the experience or knowledge (or even be allowed) to handle a California lawsuit. Our managing attorney, has almost 20 years experience representing victims of defective medical products.
The safety of metal-on-metal hip devices is seriously in issue because of the tendency for metal components to rub against one another, releasing particles of metal into a patient’s tissues, bones or bloodstream.
The Encore® metal hip recall lawyers at TheLawFirm.com are currently handling claims involving the Encore® hip replacement systems that included metal-on-metal design.
Encore® hip implants included both one-piece neck and stem called a ‘monoblock’ design often coupled with a cup with a metal surface. This creates metal friction every time you move. Encore® also made ‘modular’ hip stems in which the stem and neck are two pieces. Both types of Encore® hips have the potential to fail due to excessive metal debris caused by the metal-on-metal friction. In addition, hazards can be caused by metal corrosion at the modular neck junction (in the modular devices). Metal particles in the tissues is known to lead to high levels of cobalt and/or chromium in the blood, development of tumors, and painful loosening and instability of the hip device.
