Louisiana DePuy Hip Implant Lawsuits

Have you undergone surgery to replace your hip implant in less than 15 years? If so, you might be eligible for compensation. Hip implants are expected to last at least 15 years; when they fail early, it might be a sign that the implant was defective.

DePuy Orthopaedics, a Johnson & Johnson company, recalled two different types of hip implant systems in 2010 after several patients reported that their implants failed within 5years of surgery. The company recalled the implants, but this was after they had already been surgically implanted in more than 90,000 people worldwide.

If you are a Louisiana resident and have been affected by a faulty hip implant, our lawyers may be able to help you. To find out if you qualify to file a claim to seek compensation for your injuries, contact a Louisiana DePuy hip implant lawyer today.

Louisiana Statute of Limitations

The statute of limitations is the maximum amount of time a state allows people to file a lawsuit when they have been injured by negligence. Residents of Louisiana have only one year from the date of their injury to file a lawsuit, whether pursuing a product liability case, a personal injury case, or a wrongful death lawsuit. Even if you year is up, contact a Louisiana hip implant lawyer today.
