Iowa DePuy Hip Implant Lawsuits

Iowa residents who have been implanted with a defective and recalled DePuy hip implant system should contact an attorney as soon as possible. As in every other state, in Iowa there is a statute of limitations, which will prevent you from receiving compensation for your injuries if you wait too long.

Lawsuits for victims of these dangerous and defective products are ongoing, but new claims must be filed before the statute of limitations expires. Learn more by contacting a DePuy hip implant attorney in Iowa today.

Iowa Statute of Limitations

The statute of limitations is a set amount of time which limits how long you can wait before it is too late to file a lawsuit. The Iowa statute of limitations for personal injury, wrongful death and product liability is 2 years from date of discovery.

Defective Hip Implant Lawsuits

The defective hip implants affected by the recall are the ASR™ XL Acetabular System and the ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System. Both implants have failed in a high number of patients in as little as 5 years. Typically, hip implants should last 15 years.

Failed hip implants can be detected through swelling in the hip joint, severe pain and difficulty walking or standing. Patients have also reported a clicking or grinding noise coming from the affected area. Patients might also experience a hip dislocation or fracture when the implant loosens from the bone.

A failed implant is extremely painful and can completely impact a person's life. A lawsuit would seek compensation from DePuy, not just for the medical costs, but also for the pain and suffering caused by the failed device.
