Defective Hip Implants
DePuy Hip Implants Worldwide Recall
DePuy Orthopadedics, a division of Johnson & Johnson, has issued a worldwide recall of it's ASRTM Acetabular System for Total Hip Replacement, after determining that these hip implants may fail at an alarming rate.
The "metal-on-metal" composition of these implants can release particles into the patient potentially causing serious and painful reactions-sometimes requiring complete revision surgery.
Reportedly, Johnson & Johnson has been seeking medical releases from Recipients so that their claim adjustors can speak with you directly and possibly take down statements without your having counsel present. This is an unwise action for any recipient of these defective devices.
Having a defective hip implant in your body clearly demands having your own lawyer. You must be very cautious with dealing with the manufacturer or its representatives without proper legal representation.
