Rottenstein Law Group Advises Recipients of Recalled Hip to Seek Counsel Immediately
(New York, November 23, 2010) The Rottenstein Law Group, the firm representing plaintiffs in the DePuy Orthopaedics hip recall lawsuit, is advising recipients of the two recalled replacement hip devices, to contact an attorney sooner rather than later, to determine their eligibility to recover damages from the implantation of these defective devices.
In August 2010, DePuy Orthopaedics recalled two hip replacement devices, the ASR Hip Resurfacing System, and the ASR XL Acetabular System, because 1 in 8 patients began experiencing complications with the devices approximately 5 years after implantation. A second invasive procedure became necessary to repair or replace the implant, due to design flaws that caused an improper fit. Subsequently, recipients began experiencing side effects that required amended surgery.
Rochelle Rottenstein, principle of the Rottenstein Law Group, advises patients to confirm with their physicians whether they were recipients of the recalled DePuy devices. If one of these devices was used, she implores patients to seek counsel immediately to determine the extent of individual injury and potential for monetary damages, since the devices were originally designed to last 15 years. Only a lawyer is capable of determining an individualís rights in these cases; product liability matters often carry short statutes of limitation depending on which states they are filed in. Very often, the statute of limitations can expire before problems become evident. Additionally, DePuy Orthopaedics has been lobbying physicians, encouraging them to dissuade patients from exploring their legal options. An attorney can provide accurate counsel, based on each individualís unique circumstances. Patients should still visit their doctors, but consulting a DePuy hip replacement lawyer is an essential step in protecting your legal rights, as well as your health.
