DePuy Hip Replacement


 

DePuy, an orthopedic and neurosurgery company founded more than a century ago, manufactures medical devices used in hip replacements and hip resurfacing operations. The company, acquired by Johnson & Johnson in 1998, has produced two metal-on-metal products used in the operations: the DePuy ASR™ XL Acetabular Hip System and the DePuy ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System.

 

The products have been used globally, but unfortunately many patients have experienced negative side effects or injury as a result of undergoing surgery to have these hip devices implanted in them. In some cases, the hip replacements have failed to work at all. This led to the 2010 recall of DePuy’s AS™ XL Acetabular Hip System and the DePuy ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System. The lawsuits continue to pile up against the company as the products have proven to be risky alternatives and are not able to perform as advertised.

 

If you or a loved one has suffered pain, injury or any type of complication as a result of one of these two medical devices, you may be able to receive compensation for damages. A Boston personal injury lawyer can help you evaluate your case and gather the necessary information needed to pursue compensation.

 

Some side effects of a faulty DePuy hip replacement or resurfacing device include pain related to muscles, bones, lymph nodes, kidney or liver. The pain can be caused by metal ions or particles that were somehow released from the medical device. These particles can even lead to long-term disability.

 

Many patients have incurred an overwhelming amount of medical costs in hopes of curing the pain they’ve suffered after having a DePuy medical device implanted. If you or a family member has spent any money for subsequent operations, and can prove how the device(s) has negatively affected you, you have a right to file a claim against DePuy. Because lawsuits against DePuy are so common, class action cases have been established but you can also choose to file an individual claim. A Boston personal injury lawyer can help you decide which route is the best option for you.

 

DePuy also manufactured the Pinnacle and ASR system, both used in hip replacements. However, like the previously mentioned products, these devices have also performed poorly. Due to a high failure rate, the company had to recall these products in 2010. In a 2013 settlement, Johnson & Johnson was required to compensate patients who had their ASR systems removed and replaced. Patients were compensated about $350,000 each. Were you or a family member negatively affected by one of these products? Frank Fernandez can help determine if you have a case against DePuy.

 

DePuy is not the only company which has manufactured poor hip replacement products. Stryker, which has produced the Stryker ABG II and Stryker Rejuvenate, have also led to complications for patients. Wright Medical’s product, Conserve, and Biomet’s M2 Magnum have also proven to be defective in many patients. Have any of these implant devices caused you or a loved one pain and suffering?

I am happy that I chose Frank to be my lawyer, and I will choose him again in the future. Although we agreed that I will pay him more money if my case went to trial, but he did his best to get my case dropped, and in fact the case was dismissed, and I didnt have to go through a trial or pay him extra money. He did all the work and all i had to do was showing up in court, I didnt need to speak a word. Very impressing, Frank is someone you can trust, and I respect him and his work

Very honest. Accepted my case while I was in NYC. Explained to me exactly what will happen at minimum cost. First time I can say I met an honest attorney. As a business and real estate in NYC, I retained many attorneys whose goal was to maximize their fees. Mr Fernandez was very reasonable and upfront honest with his fee. Very highly reccomend.

Frank Fernandez should be the first call anyone makes within the Boston area for legal representation. As a working professional, I made a horrible mistake and I was arrested with the potential of spending a lot of time in jail with the potential to have charges escalated. His efforts saved me a lot of potential pain and grief. He came to my rescue when I had no family locally to help me out of the situation my actions caused.I was fortunate that I found him out of the chaotic choices that are out there. Frank is professional and cares about all of the elements which affected the outcome of my case. My life and my career are back on track and I could not have done this without Frank's ability to react and change the course of difficult decisions. Trust, integrity, honesty, alongside the ability to dig deep, are just some of the characteristics of the person who accepted my case in the middle of the night.If you need a sanctuary when you can only see your life taking a change for the worse, call Frank and explain the elements of your case. I've got his card in my car, my wallet, my desk when I've got the potential for any type of legal action. I know he's someone that I can depend upon.I'm not posting for sake of Frank's business, I'm posting to convey my thanks for a difficult set of circumstances that I'll not face due to his ability to think quickly and make reliable decisions in spite of the issues that resulted from my actions.
