The number of DePuy hip replacement lawsuits filed by Irish patients is now nearing 200 people. All of the suits claim that the plaintiffs received defective hip implants.
The lawsuits have been filed against DePuy Orthopaedics and their parent company, Johnson& Johnson and claim that the defendants did not properly warn consumers of the potential risk factors that could happen from the metal-on-metal hip replacement system.
The lawsuits have been filed by people between the age of 30 and 80 and many of them have had to undergo revision surgery to fix the pain and suffering caused by the defective hip implants.
If you or a loved one has been injured after receiving a defective hip implant, you need representation that will be able to help you fight for the compensation that you deserve. Contact the DePuy hip implant recall lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-761-3187 today.
