Michigan DePuy Hip Implant Lawyer

The DePuy Orthopedics company, based in Warsaw, Indiana, makes a wide variety of medical products for the repair and reconstruction of skeletal injuries. The company makes two particular hip implant devices, the ASR™ XL Acetabular and ASR™ Hip Resurfacing systems, that were recalled by DePuy and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) because of reports of severe complications, including:

  • crippling pain
  • inability to stand or walk
  • swelling around the hip implant

Michigan residents who are suffering from a hip implant failure can schedule a free initial consultation with a Michigan-based law firm that represents individuals who have been harmed by unsafe or faulty medical devices such as the DePuy ASR™ hip implant systems.

A Johnson & Johnson Company

DePuy is a subsidiary of the mega-corporation Johnson & Johnson. It's estimated that as many as 500,000 people have received all-metal hip implants such as the DePuy ASR™ systems, and it's expected that up to 5 percent of patients who receive a hip implant will experience an "implant failure" within five years of their implant surgery.

The failure rate of the DePuy hip implants is estimated as 13 percent — far higher than the norm of 5 percent. In August of 2010, DePuy recalled all of the ASR™ XL Acetabular and ASR™ Hip Resurfacing systems that had been sold since 2003. This means that thousands of individuals in the U.S. have DePuy hip implants that may well be faulty.

DePuy Is the Defendant in Thousands of Lawsuits

The DePuy hip implant issue has been called "the most widespread medical implant failure in decades," for good reason. Over 3,500 lawsuits against DePuy have been filed across the U.S. The company has already been helping patients who need new surgery after their DePuy hip implants failed or caused serious problems.
