Metal Poisoning

DePuy’s ASR XL hip replacement system contains traces of heavy metals like chromium and cobalt. While this in itself is not a problem, the structure of the replacement hip causes metal to rub against metal, which results in shredding of chromium and cobalt particles.

When these particles enter the blood stream, individuals may suffer blood poisoning. If you received a DePuy hip implant and suffered metal poisoning as a result, contact the DePuy lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher today at 800-761-3187 for a free legal consultation.

The Effects of Metal Poisoning

Chromium and cobalt particles that enter the bloodstream after being shed from DePuy hip replacement systems may cause severe illness. Typically, individuals who suffer metal poisoning will experience:

  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Memory loss and confusion
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Nausea

When these symptoms are left untreated and an individual’s blood remains contaminated with heavy metals, the individual may suffer permanent harm over time. Most commonly, an individual may develop:

  • Kidney damage
  • Liver damage
  • Brain damage

Individuals who suffer more severe poisoning may even develop cancer. People who suffer metal poisoning from their DePuy ASR XL hip replacement systems are advised to contact a DePuy lawsuit attorney to learn more about holding DePuy accountable.
