A division of Johnson and Johnson, DePuy is one of the largest manufacturers of joint replacements, including hips.
If you or someone you love has a defective DePuy hip implant, you want to talk to a doctor as soon as possible, so you can properly monitor your condition. There is a chance you will be fine, as some patients have no problems at all. You may also suffer severe pain and swelling, making it difficult for you to walk. If this is the case, you may need to have addition surgeries, including a possible new hip replacement.
Many European countries have a large-scale database that allows manufacturers and doctors to share information regarding hip and other joint replacements. The two main obstacles for creating a registry in the United States are costs and privacy. Medical product manufacturers stand to lose a lot of money if patients who have suffered from their negligence learn of their liability. The United States is one of the few developed nations in the world that does not have a joint registry.
A division of Johnson and Johnson, DePuy Orthopaedics is one of the nation’s largest manufacturers of hip implants. If you or someone you love has one of the recalled implants, you should see a doctor as soon as possible to make sure your implant is functioning correctly. If the implant is causing problems, you may need additional surgery.
DePuy has gone so far as to ask doctors to send them reports of how the hip replacements are functioning. Of course, they did not take the important step of warning patients until months after they decided to stop producing the flawed implants. DePuy knows they have made a flawed product and that their implant can cause serious pain and injury to people in need of help. They should be held responsible for the damage they have done.
DePuy has issued statements that they will reimburse patients for damages suffered as a result of their flawed implants. But what is the full impact of your injury? Our lawyers are ready to answer your DePuy implant questions and help you find recovery solutions.
Open to settlement opportunities and prepared for trial, we will be ready to stand up to DePuy and protect your rights after a defective hip replacement.
