Understanding Damages

DePuy hip replacement patients who have suffered harm from their implants may want to sue DePuy and its parent company, Johnson & Johnson, for pain, suffering, and medical expenses. If the case is successful, the individual will be awarded damages.

Damages is the term for financial compensation in civil lawsuits. If you or someone you love suffered harm after receiving a DePuy ASR hip implant, contact the DePuy lawsuit lawyers of Williams Hart today at 800-761-3187.

Types of Damages

In civil lawsuits, there are three main types of damages that are awarded for different reasons. These types of damages are:

  • Special damages – compensation for any expenses incurred as a result of the injury
  • General damages – compensation for pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages – compensation for being the victim of a grossly negligent action

In the case of DePuy ASR hip replacements, successful plaintiffs should expect to receive general and special damages for their injuries. Some individuals may be able to fight for punitive damages as well since DePuy ignored several reports pointing out faults with their products before issuing a recall.

Individuals who decide to take action and hold DePuy accountable should contact a DePuy lawsuit attorney to learn more about their legal rights and options.
