Missouri DePuy Hip Implant Lawyers

Missouri DePuy hip implant attorneys provide legal representation to individuals who have suffered harm due to a faulty DePuy hip implant. The physical and emotional toll of having your implant "go bad" can be devastating, and plaintiffs' attorneys are often able to recover financial compensation for damages such as:

  • medical treatment — including revision surgery to correct a failed hip implant
  • long-term nursing care — for debilitating injuries due to a failed implant
  • in-home help with daily life — when an implant patient cannot accomplish all necessary household tasks
  • medication
  • rehabilitation
  • lost income due to prolonged absences from work, or permanent inability to work
  • chronic, incurable pain
  • emotional suffering

DePuy Hip Implant Recall

Of particular concern are the two types of DePuy hip implants that DePuy Orthopaedics (a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson) recalled in 2010: the ASR™ ("Articular Surface Replacement ") Hip Resurfacing System and the ASR™ XL Modular Acetabular Hip System. Tens of thousands of individuals have received one of these two hip implants, and already, over 3,500 lawsuits have been filed against DePuy based on serious complications, including:

  • chronic, intense pain
  • swelling around the implant
  • stiffness of the affected hip
  • grinding and popping in the hip
  • lost ability to stand, walk, or even sit for any length of time

All of these symptoms can and do get worse over time.

DePuy Hip Implant Lawsuits

The DePuy hip implant lawsuits allege that the DePuy implants have defective designs, and that the implants were not tested adequately before being put on the market and used in human patients. The lawsuits also note that DePuy was getting serious complaints about these two hip implants for over two years before they recalled the devices.
