The Rottenstein Law Group Advises Plaintiffs May Have a Hip Replacement Lawsuit Even If Their Device Was Not Manufactured by DePuy
(January 21, 2011, New York, NY) The Rottenstein Law Group is advising hip replacement recipients who may be experiencing difficulties with their implant devices to find out which type of device they were implanted with. There are many other hip replacement device manufacturers besides DePuy Orthopaedics, which may entitle you to file a claim with a hip replacement lawyer, if your device is failing.
Regardless of the manufacturer, a hip replacement device has an average life span of approximately 15 years. Many recipients of DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System or the ASR Hip Resurfacing System began experiencing difficulties about 5 years after implantation. Symptoms have included pain, swelling, the formation of tumors, and higher than normal levels of chromium and other metals in the bloodstream. DePuy issued a recall of these devices in August 2010, which has affected 93,000 people worldwide. Many recipients may be reluctant to investigate the status of their hip replacement device because of additional medical costs and other expenses. Consulting with a hip replacement lawyer can give you peace of mind when it comes to your health; you may be entitled to damages from the hip replacement device manufacturer that will help cover medical costs and lost income that will result from having to undergo an amended surgery or other treatments necessary to rectify the damage caused by a faulty hip replacement device.
The Rottenstein Law Group has been helping plaintiffs across the US obtain pertinent information and file claims against DePuy Orthopaedics and other parties responsible for the use of defective hip replacement devices. Patients who feel they might have reason to join thousands of others in filing a claim should first speak to a physician in order to diagnose their specific symptoms. A consultation with a hip replacement lawyer will help determine what to expect in terms of compensation for medical and travel expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering.
