Structured Settlement Talk:  DePuy Hip Failure Rate Worse Than Originally Cited

Structured Settlement Talk: DePuy Hip Failure Rate Worse Than Originally Cited

As reported today on Bloomberg.com, the British Orthopaedic Association and the British Hip Society issued a statement that the failure rate of the DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System is more than twice what was originally represented when the device was recalled in 2010.

According to the article, nearly half of all patients who received the recalled device require a second surgery within six years.  The article goes on to reference the 350+ lawsuits recently consolidated in federal court in Ohio and the 220+ currently pending in California state court.

My personal interest in the matter stems from my own hip surgery in 2010.  Our firm stands ready to help those who have been adversely affected by the DePuy ASR Hip Recall in any way we can.  If you are anticipating a settlement, we can help you make wise choices about your settlement.  If you are unrepresented and seeking legal counsel, we can guide you.  Whatever your needs on this matter, we’re here to help.
