Defective Hip Implants

Hip Implant Recall Attorneys in Charleston, IL

Serving Central & Southern Illinois for 23 Years

Hip replacement surgery is a major life event, even when all goes well. The recovery process can take 6 to 12 months and can be painful and debilitating. When something goes wrong, and the hip implant fails prematurely, you will likely have to undergo the entire process again. If you or a loved one has had this happen to you, the attorneys at The Tapella & Eberspacher Law Firm can help.

Separate from a claim against the doctor who placed the hip implant, defective hip implant claims are made against manufacturers, sellers, and distributors of the hip implant itself. Generally, such a claim is based on problems with the way the device was designed or manufactured. Our Charleston, IL hip implant injury lawyers have the resources to stand up to the at-fault companies and give you the quality representation you deserve.

Find out if you have a case by calling (217) 394-5885 or filling out our online contact form. Your initial consultation is free and strictly confidential.
