Kansas DePuy Hip Implant Lawsuits

Patients who received an artificial hip manufactured by DePuy Orthopaedics may have been implanted with a defective device. Two models of DePuy hip implants were recalled in 2010 because a large number of patients reported problems with their implants. If your implant failed, causing you severe pain and other problems, you should speak with a Kansas DePuy hip recall attorney as soon as possible to find out if you qualify to file a claim.

What is the Statute of Limitations?

Each state has its own time limit, outlining the maximum amount of time someone can wait before filing a lawsuit. The time limit is called the statute of limitations. In order to qualify to file a claim, you must meet the statute of limitations in your state.

The statute of limitations in Kansas are:

  • Personal Injury - 2 years, with discovery rule
  • Product Liability - 2 years, with discovery rule
  • Wrongful Death - 2 years, with discovery rule

How a Hip Implant Lawyer Can Help You

If your hip implant has caused you severe pain, you deserve to be compensated, not only for the cost of revision surgery, but also for your pain and suffering. A qualified defective hip implant lawyer can help you recover the compensation you are owed by law and will not settle on a lesser amount. An attorney can help you seek compensation for the following:

  • Medical bills, including the cost of revision surgery and physical therapy
  • Lost wages if you have to take time away from work
  • Support for your family and for other financial responsibilities such as your mortgage payment
  • Pain and suffering
