DePuy Hip Replacement Defects
Full Video Transcript
DePuy is a manufacturer and distributor of orthopedic devices, trauma products, implants and technologies for hips, knees, ankles, and more. Recently, DePuy was forced to recall its ASR CL Acetabular Hip System as well as its ASR Hip Resurfacing System, citing defects that lead to patient pain and a need for additional surgeries. Although DePuy may have placed each of these systems through rigorous testing, a defect remained in the products at the time they were implanted in patients. Under a theory of product liability, a manufacturer is liable for any injuries resulting from their defective products. In this case, anyone affected by the DePuy hip replacement recall may be entitled to compensation. If you were affected by this recall and would like to better understand your legal options, contact an experienced attorney in your area today.
