Hip replacement devices have the power to significantly improve the quality of life and mobility of individuals with serious hip problems. However, when these devices are themselves defective, they can expose recipients to even greater pain and suffering than they originally encountered. This was the unfortunate case with a number of DePuy hip replacement devices. While several of DePuy’s models offered patients hope of a better life with the assistance of a device that was supposed to last longer than other hip replacement options, the sad reality was that defects with several models left recipients in significant pain, suffering from serious illness, or in need of a new hip replacement device altogether.
If you or someone you love has suffered adverse side effects because of a defective DePuy hip replacement device, you do have legal options available. Many victims of these medical devices have taken legal action against DePuy for the pain and suffering and financial losses they have been forced to endure.
While some patients were fortunate to not experience any negative side effects from their hip replacement devices, DePuy issued a voluntary recall of several of their hip replacement models because of some starting side effects with these devices. If you have suffered any of the following side effects, you may be eligible for compensation:
These side effects can significantly affect the quality of life of hip replacement recipients, but fortunately, help is available.
