Missouri DePuy Hip Recall Lawyers
One of the most common replacement surgeries is the hip replacement, which when successful, allows a person to maintain a reasonably active lifestyle without hip pain. Johnson & Johnson, which is the parent company of DePuy Orthopedics, Inc., has recently issued a recall for the DePuy ASR hip system. This hip replacement system had a high failure rate, and many individuals experienced problems and complications after receiving the surgery.
When metal particles shed into the body from the metal-on-metal design, patients who had the system implemented could suffer soft tissue damage, inflammatory reactions and bone loss. At the law firm of Holman Schiavone, LLC, our team of attorneys can help you pursue financial compensation if you have been impacted by the Depuy ASR system and have sustained losses as a result of these unsafe devices.

There are a few possible ways that the DePuy ASR system can malfunction, both related to its design and to its implementation. The design defects are related to the component materials, as well as to the friction that the system transfers to the body. The implementation problems come when the system is implanted at an improper angle, which has an unexpectedly low tolerance.
The device’s failure often results in costly and painful “revision” surgery, which can also have complications for the patient. Our firm has experience investigating and pursuing claims against DePuy. If you have been harmed by one of these systems, it is in your best interests to know what rights you have in the legal process.
