Kentucky DePuy Hip Implant Lawsuits

Recipients of defective DePuy hip implants have experienced painful complications and have needed to undergo revision hip surgeries. If you've suffered from a defective hip implant, you might be eligible to seek compensation from DePuy as long as you file your claim before the statute of limitations expires. Contact a Kentucky DePuy hip implant attorney today to protect your rights and learn more about the process of filing a lawsuit.

Kentucky Statute of Limitations

The statute of limitations is the amount of time, set by each state, in which a person can wait before filing a lawsuit for injuries. Depending on the type of case, the clock begins ticking either when the injury is discovered or from when the injury occurred.

The following are the limits for Kentucky residents:

  • Personal Injury - 1 year after the injury is discovered
  • Wrongful Death - 1 year after the appointment of a personal representative (if no one has been appointed within 1 year of the death, then the limit is 2 years from date of death)
  • Product Liability - 1 year after the injury is discovered

DePuy Implant Failures

Problems with the recalled hip implants have caused many people severe pain and other complications, including problems walking and standing. The only way to fix the problem is through a second surgery that can be even more painful and hard to recover from than the initial surgery.

If you or someone you care about has already undergone revision surgery, or is scheduled to have revision surgery, you should contact a defective hip implant lawyer as soon as possible. A Kentucky hip implant lawyer will evaluate your case to determine if you are eligible to file a claim.
