Hodes Milman represented a 54-year-old male who is riddled with pain and forced into early retirement after undergoing a right hip arthroplasty in 2007, where doctors inserted a defective hip replacement product. Hip replacement components were recalled in July 2008 after it was learned that the surgical parts did not work properly, forcing many patients to undergo painful and costly additional surgeries to correct the defect. Hodes Milman obtained a $220,000 settlement on behalf of the patient.
