West Virginia DePuy Hip Implant Lawyer

In West Virginia, DePuy hip implant lawyers stand ready to help individuals who received one of the recalled DePuy models: "ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System" or "ASR™ XL Acetabular System" hip implants. Tens of thousands of these hip implants have been given to patients around the world, but the failure/complication rate of the implants is so high that DePuy recalled them in 2010, and DePuy has paid the costs for many hip implant recipients' surgery for implant replacement.

Older-Model Hip Implants Did Better

There is quite a variety of artificial hip/hip implant styles and designs; the market for these implants is huge. For example, roughly half a million people in the U.S. have undergone surgery to receive an all-metal artificial hip. However, a recent study showed that none of the new designs for artificial hips (such as the DePuy models) were any better than the older models, and approximately 30 percent of the new models were worse in terms of failure and complications.

Signs and Symptoms of Hip Implant Failure

Over 3,000 individuals have started lawsuits against DePuy based on severe complications following their receipt of a DePuy hip implant. The signs and symptoms of hip implant complications (such as loose implant components, metal shavings from parts rubbing, and misalignment of parts) include:

  • a grinding sensation in the hip implant
  • popping noises from the implant
  • difficulty moving the hip for standing, walking
  • chronic and increasing pain from the implant

Schedule a Free Appointment

If you or your loved one received a hip implant, you can schedule a free consultation with a West Virginia DePuy hip implant attorney to get answers to all of your questions. You don't need to know whether the hip implant was made by DePuy, an attorney can find this out for you.

It's a good idea to know all of your legal options, as soon as possible. Many individuals have obtained financial compensation for severe problems caused by faulty medical devices, and if you have concerns about your health and future, a free consultation can help put your mind at ease.
