HIP REPLACEMENT PATIENTS: PLEASE READ
93,000 DePuy ASR Hip Replacement Systems Recalled--You may have a DePuy ASR lawsuit claim!
DePuy Hip Replacement lawsuits are extremely complex. You should consult with a DePuy ASR hip replacement lawyer to file an effective lawsuit against DePuy Orthopaedics on your behalf. By choosing Keller & Keller, you have ensured that your hip injury claim is being handled by a professional legal team familiar with the recall, and trained to present your case in the most effective manner possible.
Keller & Keller is reviewing DePuy hip replacement cases nationwide for anyone that has required a revision surgery to repair the problems caused by DePuy's ASR Hip System.
Approximately 93,000 hip replacement patients recently learned that their Hip Replacement System may be defective. Our lawyers have been investigating the potential for a lawsuit against DePuy prior to their official August 26th 2010 recall, as we had received reports of several hip replacement patients suffering side-effects from their hip device as long ago as the year 2006.
After fully reviewing the facts surrounding Depuy's defective hip devices, our lawyers believe that DePuy had a responsibility to notify hip replacement patients much earlier. A recent New York Times article reports that many orthopaedic specialists have also come to the same conclusion as our firm, and that DePuy is wrong for not notifying people of the possible defect, leaving hip replacement patients in excruciating pain and the need for an additional surgery.
Some of the symptoms experienced by patients who may have a potential claim against DePuy include:
- Unresolved or continuous hip pain
- Complete failure of the hip replacement
- Loosening of the hip implant and/or cup
- Second hip surgery to fix the implant
- Popping noises in the area around the hip
- Difficulty walking
The two systems named in the DePuy Orthopaedics recall are the DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System and the ASR XL Acetabular System. The most common factor associated with both devices is their propensity to fail and require that the patient undergo a second surgery.
