Avoiding a Hip Fracture

Every year, nearly half a million people around the country suffer hip fractures. A hip fracture is a serious medical problem that may require months of treatment and recuperation. No amount of precaution can completely negate the risk of a hip fracture. However, there are ways to protect your hips from unnecessary risks.

A number of recent hip fractures have been repaired with DePuy brand hip implants. However, these have been linked to a variety of health problems, including hip dislocation. If you have experienced problems with your DePuy hip implant, you may be able to take legal action. Contact the DePuy hip implant attorneys of Williams Hart at 800-761-3187 to discuss your options.

Tips to Prevent Hip Fractures

A hip fracture can occur for many reasons. Falls are a common cause of hip injuries, as are automobile accidents. While conducting your daily business, be cautious and consider the following safety tips:

  • Use a cane to help you walk
  • Wear shoes with good traction to prevent slips
  • Use a handrail when walking on ramps and stairs
  • Avoid distractions while driving
  • Follow doctors’ recommendations regarding exercise

With proper caution, you may be able to protect your hip from damage and stay out of the hospital. However, if you do suffer a hip fracture, you may have to undergo a hip implant. Unfortunately, though, a defective hip implant can cause further fracturing in the surrounding bone and increase the likelihood of a devastating break. Faulty hip implants pose a serious threat to the health of thousands of people.
