We have all seen the many products that are produced by the brand Johnson & Johnson. Some of these brands are household items that we use and trust every day. For a number of trusting patients of Johnson & Johnson’s DePuy Hip replacement they may decide to put their trust elsewhere.
On March 10, 2010 the New York Times reported that DePuy warned doctors about their failing hip implant cup. Some of these devices failed within a few years where similar implants lasted 15 years or longer.
For those who have been affected by the defective hip implant they may have to undergo corrective surgery to correct the problem. The surgery to help victims is costly and painful. Patients may also need physical therapy and could miss an extended period of work.
What Can You Do If You Have Received A Defective Hip Implant?
If you have been suffering from a defective hip replacement you should visit your doctor immediately. Your doctor can provide you with the guidance you need to proceed. It is also advised that you speak with a skilled DePuy Lawyer who can help you receive a fair settlement and recover lost medical bills.
