Hip replacement surgeries are often necessary to maintain mobility and improve overall quality of life. A few years ago, the DePuy hip replacement device stood out from the many options for hip replacements because of its supposed ability to last 15 years. Approximately 93,000 people worldwide received the implant.
Then, after a few short years, the implant began to fail at an alarmingly fast rate. Researchers estimate that more than one third of those who received the implant will have to receive revisionary surgeries to remove it. If you are one of the many who needs additional surgeries or is suffering from other medical issues as a result of a DePuy implant, you may be qualified to receive financial compensation to support you during this difficult time.
The DePuy hip replacement device can fail in several key areas, leading to potential health problems for the implant recipient. Some of these failures include the following:
These health effects are closely associated with the DePuy implant, and you may be qualified to receive compensation if you are suffering from them.
If you or a loved one received a DePuy hip replacement operation and are now suffering from any ill effects, you may be eligible to secure financial compensation to help you offset the cost of revisionary surgeries, other medical expenses, lost wages, and more.
