As a DePuy hip recall lawfirm, we have been watching the DePuy website to see whether they are really interested in paying full and fair compensation to anyone who was harmed by one of the ASR hip implant systems that were recalled. DePuy has made many public statements proclaiming that they were concerned and looking out for the best interests of their hip implant patients. However, these public statements are inconsistent with DePuy’s hip implant claims policy.
DePuy Hip Recall Lawyers Want You to be Compensated
In the Johnson & Johnson subsidary’s first press release, which was sent out on August 26, 2010, they boasted that they would cover “reasonable and customary costs of monitoring and treatment for services.” This was their first “offer” of compensation. This vague statement really meant nothing. DePuy refused to even acknowledge whether or not they would cover lost wages, medical expenses, or any other of the typical compensatory damages that defective product makers are required to pay to makeup for the harm they cause to their patients. In this case, if you are one of the 93,000 DePuy ASR hip implant patients and your hip implant has failed, or you are concerned about metal poisoning your system, you will likely need a second hip implant surgery.
As a DePuy hip recall lawyer, I make sure to let my clients know that hip implant surgery will dramatically affect how they are able to live their lives while recuperating from surgery. In addition, there is not any medical way to determine what long-term effects may occur to patients from having a second hip implant surgery, or from the release of the DePuy chromium and cobalt metals into their bloodstream.

DePuy hip recall lawyers believe that DePuy’s “offer” is unfair. We will continue to urge all potential DePuy hip recall clients that they are entitled to full and fair compensation. After all, they did not cause their own harm – DePuy did. Why should the cost of DePuy’s defective product be placed on the victims?
