Depuy hip recall lawyers file DePuy hip lawsuits on behalf of patients nationwide affected by the DePuy hip recall.

    FORT WORTH, TX, September 15, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Depuy hip recall lawyers have begun filing Depuy Hip lawsuits for patients nationwide who are affected by the Depuy hip recall. The DePuy ASR hip replacements have been found to fail at a very high rate and this often results in the patient needing to have the device removed and replaced in a revision surgery. Thousands of patients are expected to be affected by the DePuy hip recall.

Depuy hip recall lawyers investigation of the DePuy ASR Hip has revealed that the device causes high levels of metal ion release into patients implanted with the device. The high failure rate of the Depuy ASR hip replacement was documented in the 2008 Australian Registry. The DePuy ASR hip was withdrawn from the Australian market in December 2009 according to the New York Times, but no DePuy hip recall occurred in the United States until late August 2010.

Hundreds of patients in the United States have had to undergo additional hip revision surgery due to the failure of the DePuy ASR hip replacement according to the reports made to the FDA. Depuy hip recall lawyers familiar with defective medical device law report that a Depuy hip class action and DePuy hip lawsuits have been filed.

Patients who have had a hip replacement since 2003 and are experiencing pain are urged to contact their orthopedic surgeons or the hospital where their hip surgery took place to find out if the DePuy ASR Hip was used in their hip replacement surgery.

DePuy hip lawyers for patients with the defective hip implant have begun filing defective Depuy hip lawsuits on behalf of patients. Lawyers that practice in the area of defective hip implants began to prepare legal claims for patients since before the
DePuy ASR hip recall. These DePuy ASR Hip lawsuits will seek monetary damages and medical monitoring for the patients. The Johnson Law Firm, a national law firm at the forefront of defective medical device litigation, last month opened a new division within the firm dedicated to filing DePuy hip replacement lawsuits on behalf of patients who have had DePuy ASR hip revision surgery.

"This DePuy ASR hip should not have been allowed to remain on the market after DePuy and the FDA were notified of the failure rates and problems associated with the device. Adequate testing of the device by DePuy would have revealed the defects with the device and a timely DePuy hip recall would have saved many of these patients from revision surgeries, complications and pain," according to Johnson Law Firm attorneys. "We have clients from across the United States who suffered complications after being implanted with the defective DePuy ASR hip replacement.
