As a New Jersey and Philadelphia DePuy hip implant recall firm, we have posted information regarding the recent market withdrawal of the DePuy ASR hip implant systems. On its web site, the Johnson & Johnson subsidiary claims that it will cover medical costs for the victims of these defective hip implants. Specifically, it states
“DePuy intends to cover reasonable and customary costs of treatment if you need services associated with the recall of ASR including revision surgery if it is necessary.”
This sounds good, right? But what does this promise really mean?
Depuy Hip Recall Attorneys Clarify Empty Promises
As a DePuy recall lawyer, we tell our clients that it means nothing. Why? Because before any claims for compensation are considered, DePuy, who admittedly designed, manufactured, and sold for profit a defective hip implant to 93,000 patients, is requiring those patients to first pay for their medical expenses upfront. That’s right, if your hip implant has failed, and you need treatment or surgery, you first have to send your bills to your own health insurance company and, if you don’t have private insurance, Medicaid or Medicare. DePuy will only then consider a claim for reimbursement for any out of-pocket expenses and deductibles that are not being covered by your health insurance, Medicaid, or Medicare.
Imagine that! DePuy is passing off the cost of its own wrongdoing to working folks whose wages go to fund the Medicaid and Medicare health insurance systems.
DePuy Hip Recall Attorneys against Corporate Wrongdoers
Time and time again, corporate wrongdoers fail to take responsibility and pay fair prices on all of the harm that they cause. As we posted previously, DePuy also refuses to fairly compensate its victims for pain or disability, or for the loss of the activities that many of them enjoyed before their hip implant failed. As defective product attorneys, we will demand that DePuy Orthopaedics make up for all of the harm caused by their wrongdoing. As it stands, DePuy refuses to pay a fair price for harm caused and is trying to push the cost of its harm on to insurance companies and the U.S. taxpayers. As a defective products firm, we can make sure that a DePuy implant victim is properly and fully compensated to the full extent of the law.
