Ft. Myers, FL, United States, 2011/05/14 - Informative website to benefit persons that have received a defective implant, and contact information for attorneys that handle defective implant cases - HipClaim.com.
A seminar notification website for people that have received an artificial joint implant was made public today.
The website, hipclaim.com, contains information on how to contact an attorney if the artificial joint implant recipient experiences difficulty with their implant, such as pain, swelling, or loose-feeling joints, or other evidence of defects.
The FDA has recently announced a recall of many implanted devices because, after years of experimenting with other materials, makers of artificial joint implants have returned to using Metal-on-Metal, or "MoM" technologies in the manufacture of such implant devices. Metal-on-Metal joints have been shown to wear in unpredictable ways, and can produce very small particles of metal that can cause a wide variety of health problems. Some of the problems reported are swelling, and reactions that are commonly associated with toxicity.
The website will feature information on seminars presented by Ft. Myers area lawyers that are involved in defective "MoM" implanted joint lawsuits.
Attorneys Marcus Viles and Michael Beckman, of Viles and Beckman, LLC are credited with making the information on Metal-on-Metal joint implants available to the public, and are aggressively pursuing financial compensation for victims of these faulty Metal-on-Metal joint implants. The law firm has a history of being the first to bring many large vehicular and medical device defect cases into the forefront in Southwest Florida, and successfully completed several multi-million litigation cases involving the defective drugs, Fen-Phen and Vioxx. The practice's attorneys also have extensive experience assisting individuals injured due to defective medical devices, such as faulty Sultzer hip and knee implants.
