DePuy Hip Recall Attorneys
Camden, Sumter, Lexington, Newberry, Orangeburg, Columbia, Aiken SC
In August 2010, a DePuy hip replacement recall was issued due to complications involving the DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System total hip replacement and ASR Hip Resurfacing System. A division of Johnson & Johnson, DePuy was aware of the potential problems caused by these systems at least one year prior to the recall, yet insisted all problems were actually surgeon errors, and continued to manufacture the defective device.
Now, with over 5,000 lawsuits filed against DePuy, the company has begun sending out paperwork offering compensation to certain patients who have received their defective artificial hip. It is important to keep in mind that the compensation offered by DePuy does not cover lost wages or pain and suffering. In addition, many patients have found DePuy’s paltry offer to be inadequate to even cover the full cost of revisions and other related medical expenses.
If you are suffering pain, swelling, or any of the other documented side effects of the DePuy ASR hip replacement or resurfacing systems, you have a right to seek maximum compensation for your physical, emotional, and financial suffering.
