Ball-and-socket hip implants are generally expected to last more than a decade, but many patients who have received DePuy implants have reported hip implant failures after only a couple years, requiring invasive and expensive surgeries. If you have experienced problems with a DePuy ASR or Depuy Pinnacle hip implant, you may be entitled to compensation. DePuy Orthopaedics, a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary company, issued a recall in 2010 of the DePuy ASR system, after hundreds of people reported device failures. Although the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant has not been recalled, many patients have experienced problems with those implants, including:
If you have received a DePuy hip implant and have been diagnosed with a hip replacement failure or are otherwise experiencing problems with the device, contact an experienced hip implant attorney at Estey Bomberger for a consultation. Do not contact DePuy or Johnson & Johnson without talking to a lawyer first.
When product manufacturers take shortcuts, consumers can be seriously harmed. At Estey Bomberger, our defective product lawyers are concerned with holding manufacturers like DePuy Orthopaedics accountable for designing and selling faulty products. In product recall cases such as this one, even though DePuy is clearly to blame, victims still need to prove their cases, and fight to recover fair compensation. An experienced lawyer will know how to preserve evidence and present a claim, so that the maximum compensation is ultimately recovered.
As with any defective product, under a statute of limitations, victims have a limited amount of time to file a claim for a hip replacement surgery. It takes time to gather and preserve evidence, so do not delay in contacting an attorney. The sooner your lawyer begins your claim, the sooner you can be fairly compensated for your hip replacement lawsuit. Once the statute of limitations passes, you will lose all rights to bring a claim for compensation.
DePuy Orthopaedics is seeking to settle hip implant failure cases as quickly as possible, and for as little money as possible. Do not call DePuy's ASR help line, as your call will be recorded, and DePuy will use your statements against you to try to blame you for your hip failure. If you have already contacted DePuy, do not have any further communications with them, no matter how friendly, helpful sympathetic or accommodating their representative is to you. Instead, let your lawyer handle communications with DePuy and help you get the fair compensation you are entitled to receive. You should not provide your medical records to anyone but your lawyer.
