80 Wisconsin residents file lawsuits against DePuy

Posted on June 21st, 2011 No Comments

80 Wisconsin residents recently filed suit against DePuy for their recalled ASR XL Acetabular Hip Replacements.  The lawsuits name Johnson & Johnson Inc., DePuy Orthopaedics Inc., and other subsidiaries as defendants.

Officials from DePuy Orthopaedics decided to issue the recall after reports showed that more than 13 percent of their hip replacements had a failure rate of only 5 years.  The metal-on-metal hip replacement was recalled in August 2010.

The hip replacement is considered defective for causing infections, bone fractures, dislocation, pain, and metal sensitivity.  Metal sensitivity and high metal ion levels in the blood can also cause swelling, necrosis, metallosis, and nerve, muscle, and tissue damage.

To discuss the steps to take to file a DePuy lawsuit, contact the DePuy hip implant defect attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-761-3187 today.
