Skin Infection Dangers

Most people believe that the medical treatment they receive will help them, not hurt them. Sadly, some defective medical devices can end up causing serious pain and suffering to patients who are already dealing with injuries and illnesses. DePuy hip implants have been known to cause many complications in patients and are frequently the source of devastating physical injuries. Although infection is a danger for everyone who undergoes a surgical procedure, when the body has a bad reaction to a defective device, the risk of this painful side effect increases considerably.

The DePuy hip implant attorneys of Williams Hart have devoted their careers to helping the victims of dangerous medical devices. If you or someone you love has received a DePuy hip implant and suffered a damaging skin infection as a result, you may be able to take legal action against the party responsible for your condition. Contact our offices at 800-761-3187 to discuss your options with a member of our experienced team of lawyers.
