Our Michigan DePuy hip replacement lawyers represent patients suffering from serious complications, metallosis, or having to undergo a revision surgery after having the recalled DePuy ASR hip device implanted. Patients who suffer from complications due to the defective nature of the hip implant manufactured by DePuy do have legal rights and may be able to pursue a lawsuit against the manufacturer for the injuries suffered. Often times these lawsuits result in significant settlements for the patient.
Our Michigan DePuy hip replacement law firm is actively working with other national law firms to win the best settlement for our clients. We are actively filing lawsuits against the manufacturer on behalf of patients suffering complications related to the ASR DePuy Hip recall, as well as the Pinnacle Hip Replacement System, which is also known for its high failure rate.
DePuy’s ASR Hip Replacement System Recalled
In August 2010, both the ASR XL Acetabular System total hip replacement and ASR Hip Resurfacing System were recalled, citing a higher than normal failure rate. In fact, many patients who had the device implanted suffered from metallosis, infection, dislocation and immobility. DePuy issued the recall after finding out that 40% of patients who had the hip implant required a second hip replacement surgery after five years of having the first device implanted.
Other serious complications that have arisen from the DePuy hip systems include:
- Pain/Difficulty walking
- Bone Fracture
- Dislocation of the Implant
- Metallosis (metal poisoning)
The ASR System was in fact recalled, however the DePuy Pinnacle hip replacement also has caused several complications, and patients still may have the legal right to sue the manufacturer even if the specific device was not recalled.
