Did Your DePuy Hip Fail? You May Have A Claim.

In 2010, DePuy Orthopaedics, a division of Johnson & Johnson, recalled its ASR hip implants, including the ASR XL Acetabular System and ASR Hip Resurfacing System models. Defects include a shallow artificial cup and the metal-on-metal construction of the artificial joint. The DePuy Pinnacle hip implant has also caused problems for patients when used with a metal liner.

What Are The Most Common Defective Hip Implant Injuries?

If you or a family member has had hip replacement surgery and been injured by a defective hip replacement implant, speak with our DePuy hip recall attorney. We can help you seek compensation for your losses.

Defective hip implants have caused a range of problems such as:

  • Pain and swelling
  • Loosening and misalignment of the replacement hip
  • Difficulty sitting, standing and walking
  • Fractures
  • Loss of bone
  • Metal toxicity/metallosis affecting major organs, blood and cognitive function

In many cases, patients required an additional surgery to replace the defective implant, subjecting them to more pain, temporary disability and risk of surgical complications.
