Metal-on-Metal Hip Implant Litigation

January 18, 2013

We are advised that the FDA is preparing to propose certain rules that could stop manufacturers from selling metal-on-metal hip implants. Under the proposal, makers of artificial hips with all-metal components would have to prove that the devices are safe and effective before they could continue selling existing ones; or obtain approval for all-new-metal designs. It is further expected that the FDA will issue new guidance to doctors monitoring patients who have received all-metal hips.

This is good news for injured consumers who seek to hold manufacturers responsible for the dangers associated with these products.

If you have any questions regarding metal-on-metal hip implants or how to pursue a legal claim for injuries related to these products, please contact us.
