Filing DePuy Hip Replacement Injury Lawsuits
DePuy Hip Replacement Lawsuits
DePuy hip replacement lawsuits are happening with more and more frequency since the recall of their ASR hip replacement in 2010. Patients who have suffered injury due to faulty DuPuy hip replacements are seeking compensation for their medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages.
The components of the recalled DePuy hip replacements can come loose. These components then rub against one another and deposit metal particles into the patient’s system, which can cause extreme pain, swelling, and pseudotumors. Additionally, a loose hip replacement prosthetic puts the patient at risk for bone fracture. Many of these situations necessitate revision surgery, which DePuy has stated it will pay for. Nevertheless, so far, pain and suffering compensation has only been achieved through DePuy hip replacement lawsuits.
Dealing directly with DePuy concerning compensation for medical bills and lost wages requires signing a release and working with a representative of the company. On the other hand, a DePuy hip replacement lawyer knows the background of these cases and how much DePuy is really responsible for your injuries. He or she will represent you and your best interests, as opposed to those of the company.
Many victims of DePuy’s defective hip replacements have already filed lawsuits, and some have joined together for class action lawsuits against the company. Victims should keep in mind there is a statute of limitations (time limit) on a DePuy hip implant lawsuit, and there is only a small window of opportunity to join a class action lawsuit before it is settled. Anyone who has been injured by the recalled DePuy hip replacement should contact a DePuy lawsuit attorney by filling out the form on the right as soon as possible to protect their rights.
