A DePuy Lawyer Can Help
DePuy Orthopaedics recalled its metal-on-metal ASR XL Acetabular System and ASR Hip Resurfacing System in August 2010 due to an increased rate of failure compared to other hip replacement products. Patients who were treated with one of these devices are more than twice as likely to require repair surgery within five years compared to users of other hip implants.
Individuals who received one of the recalled DePuy hip implants may wish to speak with a lawyer to find out if they are eligible to file a lawsuit against their manufacturer and its parent company, Johnson & Johnson. A DePuy lawyer can help you to prepare your case and identify whether your hip replacement system was part of the 2010 recall.
Although many patients have experienced pain, discomfort or other symptoms caused by their DePuy hip replacement system, these devices can cause other side effects that may be harder to detect, including metal poisoning. A DePuy attorney can help to gather the appropriate medical records needed to document your injuries and prove your case in court.
