Hip replacement devices made by Stryker Orthopaedics were voluntarily recalled over concerns that the metal-to-metal contact of replacement components caused harm to surrounding body tissue, pain, and swelling. Failure of these components releases toxins into the blood causing metal poisoning.
A growing body of evidence suggests that metal-to-metal hip replacements are inherently defective. If you have a Stryker hip replacement device and are experiencing pain, swelling and other symptoms you may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer. Learn your rights by consulting A Belgrade attorney handling this type of case.
In legal practice, experience matters. An experienced attorney will likely have handled issues similar to yours many, many times. Therefore, after listening to your situation, the attorney should have a reasonable idea of the time line for a case like yours and the likely resolution.
The goal of an initial consultation is to find an attorney you are comfortable working with and someone who can help you understand your options under the law. Seek to understand the relevant legal experience the attorney brings to your case. While it is not realistic to expect an attorney to resolve your legal issue during an initial consultation, you should gain a level of comfort with his/her ability to do so. A good consultation can clarify issues, raise pertinent questions and considerations for your case, and help you make an informed decision towards resolving your legal issue.
