For many patients, their hip implants failed within a couple years after surgery and needed revision surgery. Repeat surgeries, which should not be necessary, can be dangerous. According to a 2003 study in The Iowa Orthopaedic Journal, the mortality rate for patients having hip replacement surgery for the first time is 1 percent, while the rate for revision surgeries is vastly greater at 2.5 percent.

What Are My Next Steps?
- Talk to an experienced hip replacement attorney as soon as possible. An experienced medical device lawyer can explain your legal rights to you and formulate a plan of action.
- Before signing any paperwork provided by your medical care provider or an insurance company, discuss your situation with an experienced lawyer. A medical device company or insurance company may be attempting to nullify your right to seek damages from them due to a dangerous hip replacement product.
- Do not delay. Strict time limits apply to your hip replacement claim. If you do not file your claim within that time limit, you will not be able to pursue a claim.
- See your medical care provider. If you think that your hip replacement product has been the subject of a recall, talk to your medical care provider to determine whether you are at risk for developing complications.
