Many patients that have had the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant are concerned about the potential health risk posed by the release of medical particles into the blood stream. Even if the DePuy hip implant seems to be in perfect working order, some patients are insisting that their orthopaedic surgeons remove these hip implants before they become sick or experience hip symptoms. However, if a patient is not experiencing medical symptoms, that patient’s health insurance will likely not cover the cost of a DePuy hip implant removal.
I Have a DePuy Hip Implant and I want it Removed Before it Starts Causing Harm – What Can I Do?
Well, you could ask DePuy to pay for the removal of the implant. In fact, under the terms of the recall, DePuy has offered to pay for surgery to remove their hip implants. DePuy is urging patients to contact them directly without a lawyer. However, as a DePuy hip implant lawyer in New Jersey, we strongly advise against patients trying to negotiate with this giant orthopaedic company. The claims representatives who work for DePuy are not on your side, but on the side of the company trying to preserve their money and limit their financial exposure.

We will ensure that DePuy fairly and reasonably evaluates your claim for medical testing, medical treatment, second opinions, travel and cost expenses, loss of income while you recuperate, and the pain, suffering, and scarring that will be associated with the surgery required to repair the defective hip implant. Patients insurance carriers will not pay for these claims, but as a DePuy hip implant lawyer in New Jersey, we will see to it that DePuy pays proper and full damages for all the harm it caused to its patients.
