Hip replacement surgery has become a common procedure in the U.S. According to a study published by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the number of hip replacement procedures performed more than doubled in the 10-year period of the study, from 138,700 in 2000 to 310,800 in 2010.
Sadly, a number of people who have undergone this procedure have experienced pain and suffering and debilitating injuries because of dangerous and defective hip replacement devices.
Wright Medical hip replacement devices have led to a number of lawsuits filed by patients who have experienced serious complications. In June 2015, a California jury ordered Wright Medical Technology Inc. to pay $4.5 million to the plaintiff in the first trial of approximately 1,200 similar cases.
