DePuy Hip Replacements
Have you or a loved one suffered complications from a hip replacement? If so, you’re not alone.

What’s Wrong With The ASR?
The implants often fail after a period of a few years, and the metal-on-metal design results in metal ions being released into the bodies of recipients. Symptoms include:
- Pain and inflammation surrounding the hip implant
- Instability around the hip area, resulting in dislocation or immobility
- Muscle atrophy due to immobility resulting from instability or implant failure
They Knew And They Need To Pay
Accidents may happen, but much of the damage suffered as a result of these hip replacements could have been avoided. Johnson & Johnson (DePuy’s parent company) internal documents show that they knew the hip replacements could lead to problems. In fact, they predicted that 40% of patients would need a revision surgery within five years. Rather than recalling the hip replacements or redesigning them to spare these patients from unnecessary expenses and suffering, they continue to profit handsomely from the defective devices.
DePuy and Johnson & Johnson placed their profits over the well-being of hip replacement patients, and they need to make things right. We can help you pursue financial compensation for damages such as past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost earnings and more.
