DePuy ASR hip replacement implants were designed to offer a greater range of motion to patients. Unfortunately, an alleged design defect in the implants caused a host of problems, which led to the ASR’s recall. DePuy has offered to pay for what it deems “reasonable medical costs” related to the defective ASR hip implants. However, victims may need, and be able to recover, more compensation through a DePuy lawsuit.

The DePuy ASR hip replacement implant has caused numerous problems among patients, including metallosis, pain, early failure, tissue loss, and other issues. Common symptoms of DePuy ASR hip replacement problems include:
Many patients suffering from DePuy hip problems have had to undergo a second hip replacement surgery to remove the defective implant and replace it with a new one. In August of 2010, the company announced it would be voluntarily recalling this product, due to the high volume of injuries and complaints from patients; 1 in 8 patients required revision surgery within 5 years due to DePuy hip failure.
DePuy Orthopaedics offered, along with the recall, to cover the reasonable medical expenses related to a patients’ defective hip implant that were not covered by his or her insurance. However, this offer does not necessarily take into account the full scope of the damages that have been caused. Victims of DePuy’s negligence that pursue legal action may be able to recover compensation for past and future medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
