What should I do if I think I might have a defective Wright Hip Implant?
The first thing you should do if you are experiencing pain or problems after having a Wright hip implanted is to see your doctor for treatment options or to ask them if you may require additional surgery to fix any problems. It is also important not to sign any release about your medical information before speaking to a Chattanooga Wright hip implant and products liability lawyer with the Higgins Firm about your claim. Finally, it is recommended that you have any defective parts preserved as this may be evidence in your case. If you have any other records or notes you have made about your pain and problems, you should show these to our attorneys as well. We care about you and your case and we will review your case and any evidence and work with you to make sure that you receive any compensation that may be rightfully yours by law. We will also make sure the party responsible is held accountable for their failure to properly warn patients about any risks or problems.
