Defective DePuy Metal Hip Implants And Your Rights
Undergoing a hip replacement is not routine. Even if everything goes smoothly, you will likely face a lengthy recovery that involves a great deal of physical therapy. The tradeoff, however, is the prospect of getting around with less pain.
Unfortunately, thousands of people relying on the medical device manufacturer DePuy for their hip replacements have been left with severe pain and other medical conditions. At Tauzin & Lorio, Attorneys at Law, of Lafayette, Louisiana, our lawyers have extensive experience helping the victims of defective products and medical devices like DePuy metal hip implants.
Helping You Pursue Compensation For Severe Consequences
DePuy, owned by Johnson & Johnson, is facing allegations that it concealed and failed to warn hip replacement patients of potential complications tied to its ASR and Pinnacle implants. Some news accounts estimate the lawsuits could end up costing the company billions of dollars in state and federal court verdicts and settlements. Thousands of cases have been given class-action status.
The implants feature metal parts that grind on each other, causing pieces to lodge inside of you. This condition is metallosis, which can lead to:
- Severe joint and bone pain
- Tissue loss
- The need for another hip replacement surgery
As experienced personal injury class-action lawyers, we can guide you through the process to gather the right evidence and build a strong claim. In the meantime, it is important that you do not speak to insurance adjusters or representatives from DePuy. Additionally, do not sign any waivers that could harm your claim. We can protect your rights and ability to pursue the compensation you deserve.
