Medical Product Liability Attorneys with Reputation for Ethical Representation of individuals injured by defective medical products.
Serving clients throughout California and the United States for more than 25 years.
If you have had hip replacement surgery using a metal-on-metal implant made by the DePuy Orthopaedics unit of Johnson & Johnson, and you have symptoms or have been advised to have surgery to replace the defective implant, you should contact the Law Office of Daniel H. Rose for a free no-obligation consultation with an experienced attorney regarding your rights.
We handle each person's claim as an individual case and not as part of a class action, ensuring that each DePuy ASR implant recipient obtains individual compensation for their own particular injuries. Hundreds of individual cases have been brought in California state courts on behalf of implant recipients nationwide.
Symptoms which have been widely reported to have been caused by the defective DePuy hip implants include pain, swelling, cup loosening, audible popping or grinding, difficulty walking or going up or down stairs, and difficulty or rising from a seated position or standing for long periods of time. Also, friction caused by the metal-on-metal construction causes metal debris to disseminate into patients’ bodies, which can result in tissue damage, inflammation, infections, pseudotumors, and unhealthy elevated levels of cobalt, chromium and other metals in the blood (“metallosis”).
Despite knowing about defects and receiving complaints for years about the DePuy hip replacement implants, it was not until August 2010 that the Johnson & Johnson company finally recalled two kinds of implants, the ASR XL Acetabular System and the ASR Hip Resurfacing System. More than 93,000 individuals are affected. The DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implants, although not recalled, have been associated with similar medical issues and symptoms.
While Johnson & Johnson, DePuy, or Broadspire (a DePuy vendor) may contact you in an attempt to settle your case directly with you, this is not advisable. You may be entitled to considerable compensation beyond what may be offered to you. If you are contacted, you should consult with a knowledgeable hip recall lawyer. Claimants and their spouses are typically entitled to compensation for pain and suffering, loss of income, medical expenses, incidental expenses, and any other harm or damage related to their symptoms, any revision (hip implant replacement) surgery they may have performed, and other harm or loss they may have suffered. Do not sign anything related to your defective hip implant without first consulting with an attorney.
