Identifying Your Hip Replacement System
Before you can sue DePuy or Johnson & Johnson because of a faulty hip replacement, you must first confirm that the hip replacement system you received was one of the affected and recalled models. Tracking down this information is essential to your lawsuit.
Learning which hip implant system you received can be a difficult task without proper guidance. If you or someone you love suffered harm after receiving a DePuy ASR hip replacement system, contact the DePuy lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher today at 800-761-3187.
Finding Information on Your Hip Replacement
Since hip replacements are implanted in individuals, hip replacement patients may not know what brand of hip replacement they have received and have no easy way of checking. When patients suffer harm associated with their hip implant devices, they should find out if their implants are DePuy products.
Since patients cannot look for a brand on the implant itself, they should:
- Look for paperwork from the hip replacement/revision surgery
- Consult with their surgeons about their hip replacements
Unfortunately, DePuy does not keep a register of patients that have received their implants, so hip replacement patients will need to track down this information through other means. Individuals who determine that their hip replacement systems are from DePuy may be entitled to financial compensation.
