Houston DePuy Hip Replacement Lawyer
On August 26, 2010, DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. and its parent company, Johnson & Johnson, announced a recall of two of its hip implants. These dangerous and defective hip replacement products can cause serious complications and often require patients to undergo a second surgery to replace the defective implant. If you have one of these implants, it is important that you speak with a lawyer who has experience handling medical device lawsuits.
Which Hip Replacements Are Affected by the Recall?
To date, DePuy has recalled two models of dangerous and defective hip implants. They are:
- The ASR XL Acetabular System
- The ASR Hip Resurfacing System
The defective hips were implanted in patients between 2005 and 2009. It is estimated that about 93,000 patients received the defective devices. DePuy has offered to compensate affected people by paying for the cost of medical care, but we believe that each affected patient is entitled to full compensation. We will put our resources and skill to work for you to recover not only for medical bills, but also for:
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Physical therapy costs
