DePuy Metal Hip Recall Lawsuits: Update

DePuy recalled its ASR hip implants in 2010 after nearly 40,000 US patients had the devices surgically implanted. Lieff Cabraser represents hip replacement patients who received defective metal hip implants in lawsuits against DePuy and J&J to obtain just compensation for their pain, suffering, lost wages, and other losses.

DePuy and Johnson & Johnson have not accepted full legal responsibility for the alleged defects and failure of their metal-on-metal hip implants. On March 8, 2013, in the first trial involving the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, a California jury returned an $8.3 million verdict in favor of a Montana patient who was forced to undergo revision surgery to remove his defective DePuy implant.

Note: Patients with failing Stryker Corporation Rejuvenate or ABG II hip replacement systems should visit our Stryker Hip Systems Recall page for information about Stryker hip injury lawsuits and your legal rights.

Data from a registry of patients in the UK indicates that up to 50% of patients implanted with the defective DePuy ASR hip implant may be forced to undergo revision surgery within six years of their original hip replacement surgery.
