Metal Hip Recall
Depuy Orthopedics has recalled thousands of ASRTM
XL Acetabular Hip Systems and DePuy ASRTM
Hip Resurfacing Systems because of their defective design. Our Missouri personal injury lawyers
are investigating, and in select cases, representing injured implant victims in product liability lawsuits
against DePuy Orthopaedics on a nation-wide basis. In some instances, these hip implants are causing serious health problems to implant patients because of metal on metal rubbing within the implant. This condition may cause increased levels of chromium and cobalt (the metals which compose the hip) to enter one’s bloodstream. In many cases, people will need hip revisions and / or replacements of the defective hip system.
If you or someone you know have a DePuy hip system implant and believe you may be injured as a result, our hip defect lawyers will consult with you for free. If you already have your medical records, we will have our experts review them. If you do not have your implant records, we can obtain them for you. Please see our DePuy Hip Defect web page for more information about this recall and your legal rights. Alternatively, our personal injury law firm has established a toll free number you may call to speak directly with our hip defect lawyers: 855-HIP-CLAIM (855-447-2524).
