Recalled DePuy Hip Problem Growing in Ireland

Two recent articles further illustrate the far-reaching nature of the DePuy Hip Recall. 

The Irish Independent recently featured an article which claims 113 Irish patients have already endured two hip surgeries due to the faulty hips while as many as 3,500 might be next in line to suffer.

Further north, the Belfast Telegraph adds another 200 patients to the potential problem list with a partial article which promises a first person account of the suffering.

Worldwide, it is estimated that over 93,000 patients are potentially affected by the recall.   Johnson & Johnson, DePuy’s parent company, has tentatively set aside nearly one billion dollars to handle the lawsuits stemming from the defective device.

Our firm continues to monitor this matter with great personal interest.
