Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy typically indicates that a person has damage to their peripheral nerves, which carry signals and impulses to the brain; however, the damage can also extend to other nerves, including the motor and autonomic nerves. Although the damage progresses gradually, the symptoms and repercussions of peripheral neuropathy can be extremely serious and damaging. Although there are many causes for peripheral neuropathy, a common one that has become a much larger problem is cobalt toxicity.

Unfortunately, many patients have developed cobalt toxicity as a result of receiving defective DePuy metal-on-metal hip implants that cause metal ions to deposit in their body. For any person who is suffering from peripheral neuropathy caused by a defective implant, the DePuy attorneys of Williams Hart are prepared to help. Contact us by calling 800-761-3187 today.

Signs of the Illness

While peripheral neuropathy typically presents first as a tingling and numbness in the hands and feet, as the illness progresses other symptoms will present themselves, including:

  • Compromised coordination
  • Weakness in muscles
  • Possible paralysis
  • Burning or sharp, jabbing pain
  • Being sensitive to touch
  • Possible bladder/bowel concerns

The costs associated with treating these health complications can be significant and burdensome, not to mention the emotional and physical drain they can exert on a person.
