Experiencing Problems After a DePuy Hip Implant?
If you are a victim of the DePuy hip implant recall, Goldberg & Osborne can help.
Did you receive a total hip replacement using the DePuy ASR Acetabular Hip System? Are you experiencing hip pain, swelling, and discomfort after what you thought was a successful surgery? An alarming increase in the number of complaints regarding failed DePuy ASR implants has forced the manufacturer to recall the product. If you or a loved one have a DePuy ASR implant, you may be entitled to compensation for problems and issues caused by this device.
With an aging yet active baby-boomer population, thousands of Americans are receiving hip replacements each year due to hip degeneration and disease. Hip replacement surgery is among the most common of orthopedic surgeries, allowing millions of Americans to lead pain-free, active lifestyles well into their later years.
The DePuy implant is believed to have a design flaw which can lead to premature failure of the new hip. Hip implants generally function well for at least fifteen years post surgery but an increasing number of patients are reporting symptoms of pain, swelling, and discomfort within a mere five years of receiving a DePuy implant.
If you are experiencing pain and discomfort with your DePuy hip implant, this could be an indication of implant failure. Unfortunately, a failed hip replacement most often requires a second surgery and replacement. Hip surgery is considered major surgery with many risks, especially in older patients, and can include a long recovery period and extensive rehabilitation. The additional surgery and rehabilitation costs faced by those who must now replace the defective implant device with another can be an unbearable burden. Loss of wages, medical expenses, restrictions of normal activities, as well as pain and suffering are all losses for which you are entitled to be compensated when a manufacturer releases a defective product.
If you have a DePuy implant, don’t wait, time is of the essence.
