DePuy lawsuit filed in Australia over hip replacement defect

Posted on April 30th, 2012 No Comments

A class action lawsuit has now been filed in Australia against DePuy Orthopaedics after patients claimed that the hip replacement system failed and caused them to suffer from serious pain.

According to the lawsuit, nearly 5,500 people in Australia have received the faulty hip replacement system. The first lawsuit was filed in Sydney in June 2011 after the lead plaintiff in the case received a faulty hip replacement in 2005.

In January 2011, the woman had to have another surgery to fix the issue. Beyond the additional surgery, she was in much pain beforehand because her hip and joints were inflamed. The DePuy ASR XL hip replacement system is a metal -n-metal hip implant and the rubbing together of the metal causes fragments of metal to enter the bloodstream. This causes severe pain and in many times, a second hip replacement surgery.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of a defective hip replacement system, you need representation on your side that may be able to help you receive the compensation you deserve for your pain. Contact the DePuy hip defect lawsuit lawyers of Williams Hart by calling 800-761-3187 today.
