Metal Hypersensitivity

Some people who receive metal-on-metal hip implants develop a serious immune reaction to the metal implant called metal hypersensitivity. This complication of a hip implant can cause very serious problems for a patient, including causing the hip implant to fail or become dislocated. For this reason, it is vital that a person seek immediate medical help if they notice the signs of metal hypersensitivity.

Unfortunately for those who received DePuy hip implants, they may be more at-risk for developing this immune reaction as certain DePuy hip implants have been found to be defective, causing them to deposit higher amounts of metal ions into some patients’ bodies. The DePuy lawsuit lawyers of Williams Hart believe that the manufacturer of these implants should be held fully responsible for the pain and suffering that their defective products cause. If you have suffered because you received a defective DePuy product, contact our qualified lawyers at 800-761-3187 today.

Signs of Metal Hypersensitivity

A person who is suffering from metal hypersensitivity will typically display a number of symptoms, including:

  • Skin rash
  • Pain around the implant
  • Swelling in the area surrounding the implant
  • Erythema (redness of the skin)

If you or someone you know is exhibiting these signs, it may be possible that they have developed metal hypersensitivity as a result of their defective DePuy hip implant.
