DePuy Hip Implant Recall

In August 2010, DePuy announced a voluntary recall of the ASR™ XL Acetabular System and the ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System, due to high failure rates. The Johnson & Johnson company issued the recall after discovering that a large number of the implants were failing prematurely.

Signs and symptoms of a failing hip implant include:

  • Severe pain in the groin area
  • Swelling in the groin, leg and/or lower back
  • Difficulty walking or standing from a sitting position
  • Popping or clicking sound when walking

When a hip implant fails prematurely, the patient will require revision surgery, which in many cases is more painful and debilitating than the initial surgery.

Contact a Hip Implant Lawyer

If your hip implant failed early, you might be eligible for compensation. Even if your implant was not recalled, you might qualify for compensation for the cost of revisions surgery as well as for the pain and suffering you've endured.

To find out if you qualify to file a claim against DePuy, contact a defective hip implant lawyer today.
