The FDA has received several adverse reports about the Wright Hip Replacement implant products.  Therefore, I want to inform the readers of this blog about the dangers associated with the implant and how they can seek proper representation and care.

What are Wright Hip Replacement Implants?

The Wright Hip Replacement Implants are artificial hip implant devices that replace a patient’s damaged hip joint with a synthetic ball and a corresponding cup.  Both the ball and the cup have a metal on metal connection.

Why Are Wright Hip Replacement Implants Dangerous?

The problem associated with the Wright Hip Replacement Implant is its durability.  According to reports, the implant may fracture or break.  This can be very painful for the patient.  Moreover, when the ball and the cup rub against each other, the metal-on-metal connection of the implant may cause metallosis.

Each state has different statute-of-limitations laws.  However, as a general rule, you should bring your lawsuit against the manufacturer within two years of the incident or discovery.  Many individuals who have been injured by a Wright Hip Replacement Implants have not yet filed a claim against Wright. Some cases are time sensitive so it is important to be aware of limitations and act accordingly to avoid forfeiture of your right to financial compensation.
