Metal-on-metal hip implants were supposed to solve hip pain, but some people are even less mobile and in more pain after hip surgery.
Thousands of upset patients have filed lawsuits after suffering life-threatening health problems with their defective metal-on-metal hips.
Standing up to a manufacturer who failed to adequately test their products before allowing them to be implanted in people’s bodies is the only way to deter these incidents from happening again. Companies can be held responsible for their misdeeds when you have fearless advocates on your side.
