As a Fort Worth Texas Depuy Hip Recall law firm, we have begun evaluating and accepting Depuy Hip Product Liability claims for patients nationwide who are affected by the Depuy hip recall. The DePuy ASR hip replacements have been found to fail at a high rate and this results in the patient needing to have the device removed and replaced in a revision surgery.
Our investigation of the DePuy ASR Hip has revealed that the device causes high levels of metal ion release into patients implanted with the device.
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 Orthopaedics, made a voluntary recall for their ASR XL Acetabular System which was sold in the U.S. The recall was promted by the discovery that 12-13% of patient’s metal-on-metal implants failed within just five years time, prompting a painful revision surgery.
DePuy sent a letter to orthopaedic hip surgeons to alert them of the recall and in addition, they provided an informational packet and medical release form to be passed out to patients.
We at the Dr Shezad Malik Law Firm strongly advise anyone with a DePuy hip to not sign that release. You do not want to give DePuy the right to review at all your confidential medical records and to take possession of the defective implant after revision surgery.
DePuy pays surgeons $50 for each medical release they convince their patients to sign. Depuy will use that medical information against the patient during litigation. The defective hip implant is the most critical piece of evidence that a patient has in their claim
