Metal Debris Causes Crippling Damage in DePuy ASR Hip Implant Patients
Many across the world are victims of the DePuy ASR hip implants. What was originally intended to help patients across the globe has turned out to hurt more than it helps. Johnson & Johnson, the DePuy hip implant company, recently announced a multibillion-dollar deal to settle thousands of lawsuits concerning their defective product which was recalled in August of 2010. The lawsuits describe how within just a few years of the implant surgery many patients experienced failure and other defective problems with the replacement. In fact, the A.S.R. implant—a metal ball and metal cup—was found to shed metallic debris as it wore down from use. These particles generated from the grinding of metal against metal have been shown to cause damage in the surrounding tissue, causing crippling and serious injuries in some patients.
From a civil standpoint, our firm has represented numerous families who are the victims of the dangerous or crippling effects of the DePuy ASR hip implant. If you or a loved one has experienced any of these problems because of the implant, we encourage you to consult with one of our Hip Implant attorneys as soon as possible. Although no amount of money can compensate for permanent physical damage, a successful civil claim pursued against the responsible party will ensure the victims are not burdened with costly medical expenses, and will hopefully help compensate them for their pain, suffering, and lost wages for time missed from work.
