It is possible that you still may be able to take legal action to seek compensation for damages, some of which are not available for recovery through the reimbursement process.

DePuy created a reimbursement process after issuing a recall of its ASR XL Acetabular System and ASR Hip Resurfacing System in August 2010. The recall was announced after data revealed that the hip implants failed at a higher-than-expected rate. According to the data, approximately 12% of patients with the ASR resurfacing device and 13% of patients with the ASR total hip replacement needed revision surgery within five years of implantation. In addition to hip failure, pain, swelling and dislocation, the recalled ASR hips have also reportedly been linked to metal poisoning
which may occur when the implants’ metal-on-metal components grind against each other releasing cobalt and chromium ions into the body.
DePuy reportedly faces more than 2,000 lawsuits in the U.S. If you have experienced problems with a recalled ASR hip implant, you may still have legal recourse to seek compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering and future medical care. Even if you have filed a claim with DePuy for reimbursement
, the attorneys at Morgan and Morgan would still like to evaluate your claim. For a free case review, please visit ForThePeople.com today.
