We Understand The Medical Device Industry

Defective hip implants are a widely publicized problem. But designers and manufacturers are responsible for making implants as safe as possible, and doctors are responsible for adequately warning patients of the potential risks involved.

At the Law Office of Jean Sutton Martin, we handle major medical device litigation that includes DePuy and Stryker hip recall cases for clients throughout the Wilmington, North Carolina, area. As a lawyer with more than 18 years of legal experience, Jean S. Martin focuses exclusively on medical implant and dangerous drug cases. We maintain a tight focus on these matters because they are rarely simple. Our dedication to this field means that you will not have to pay for us to start learning about medical device litigation. We know all aspects of these cases before we begin representation.

More Than 18 Years Of Experience

One of the most common problems with hip implants, knee implants and similar medical devices is metallosis. Many of these medical devices employ a construction that has moving parts made with metals interacting with other moving metal parts, often in a ball-in-socket type configuration.

Over time, the scraping of these metals can result in microscopic shards of metal breaking off into the body. When these shards of metal break down in the bloodstream, they can cause a number of problems, including severe pain, the need for revision surgery and metal poisoning. Even if metallosis does not occur, improper installation of any implant device can result in severe pain and need for repeat surgery. You should not have to shoulder the physical and financial burden of these errors.

Although the symptoms you are experiencing are extreme and you could be dealing with a high level of anxiety, attorney Martin and our entire legal team are here to help you. We have the knowledge and experience to build a strong case for you and protect your rights.
