Did You Suffer An Injury From A DePuy Hip Implant?
When an individual undergoes a medical procedure to replace a joint such as a hip, it is expected that the artificial hip will improve the quality of that person’s life. When the medical device fails or causes injury to the individual, the manufacturer should be held accountable.
A History Of DePuy Recalls
In August 2010, DePuy Orthopedics, a division of Johnson & Johnson, issued a global recall of two of the company’s hip replacement systems: the ASR Hip Resurfacing Systems and the ASR XL Acetabular Systems. The DePuy hip replacement recall came after the defective medical device had been implanted in more than 93,000 patients. A significant number of these recipients required revision surgery to remove the defective device.
A Legal Team With Experience, Skill And Resources To Take On Pharmaceutical Entities
If you or a loved one suffered injury from a hip implant, let our team at Lamkin, Van Eman, Trimble & Dougherty, LLC, in Columbus, Ohio, help you. Our lawyers have extensive experience handling complex litigation involving defective products, including defective medical devices like the DePuy hip implant.
Specific Hip Injuries
We have the experience, resources and determination to take on pharmaceutical and medical device companies and are prepared to pursue hip implant claims involving:
- Hip implant devices that have become loose or dislocated
- DePuy implants that have caused medical particles to be shed into the patient’s body, essentially poisoning the surrounding tissue
- Hip replacement devices that have required a second surgery to remove and replace the defective device
When companies emphasize profit over the safety or care of consumers, consumers end up receiving defective and dangerous products.
Unfortunately, in the case of DePuy hip implants, thousands of patients received the defective product due to the company’s carelessness. In fact, it is suspected that the company was aware of the device’s defects long before it issued a recall — resulting in many patients undergoing a hip replacement surgery that DePuy Orthopedics knew was destined to fail.
