When A DePuy Hip Implant Causes You Harm

After you have received a hip implant, it may be important for you to understand the recall of some of these types of devices. Did you receive the DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System or ASR Hip Resurfacing System? Many of these devices have been found to be defective.

You may have received documentation from DePuy about the recall of these devices, but the information may have been confusing. It is important to know that anything you sign or say to your doctor may limit your rights and ability to receive all of the compensation to which you may be entitled.

Contact an experienced and skilled attorney at the Knoxville law firm of Pryor, Priest, and Harber today to learn about your rights and your options.

Though the hip implants are expected by the manufacturer to last up to 15 years, it appears that the implantable devices are failing within the first three years. The FDA has received more than 300 complaints of problems with the hip implants since 2008, including complaints of:

  • Loose hip cups
  • Hip dislocations
  • Bone fractures
  • Pseudotumors from metal debris
  • Allergic reactions
  • Permanent muscle and tissue damage
  • Additional surgeries to correct damage and defective implants

Though DePuy is covering some medical expenses associated with the defective hip implants, they may not cover all tests and procedures that are necessary to ensure that you are healthy and that the implant did not do irreversible damage. We can help you protect your rights and get the compensation you deserve.
