Litigation Over DePuy Hip Replacements Rising | DC Metro Area Medical Malpractice Law Blog

5 stars

Posted by: Salvatore J. Zambri, founding member and senior attorney

An August recall of DePuy ASR hip implants had led to lawsuits.  The suits claim that the manufacturer knew its product was failing, but nevertheless continued to sell it for profit without informing consumers.

The problem seems to be with the metal-on-metal design of the device, which does not appear to adhere well in the hip joint.  Consequently, the failed replacements have to be re-done, often at a terrible cost both financially and physically. Some patients have suffered metal poisoning, and others are having a hard time ambulating.

My firm regularly represents victims of product defects.  It is a shame when you see companies put profits over people.  Bad things–tragic things–happen when that business model is used.
