DePuy ASR Hip Replacement FAQ | Frequently Asked Questions


Can I sue Johnson & Johnson if my DePuy ASR hip replacement is not defective or has not failed?

DePuy hip implants FAQ Generally,a  product defect lawsuit is designed to aid patients who have been injured as a result of malfunction or design, or warning defect.  Therefore, patients who continue to use the DePuy ASR hip implant  and where the implant is working properly will not be permitted to file a claim against Johnson and Johnson or receive any recall benefits.

How do I know if my DePuy hip replacement has failed?

There are several symptoms all patients of the DePuy hip replacement system should be aware of that could possibly indicate that the device has failed.  Common symptoms include
  • Hip pain or swelling
  • Difficulty moving or walking – patients may feel that the hip is dislocated
  • Noise with movement of the hip – can be shown through a “clicking” sound
In cases where the patient suffers from toxic substances entering their body, such as cobalt poisoning, it is a bit more difficult to determine.  These patients may suffer from memory loss or fatigue.  Ultimately, only your doctor can diagnose a failed DePuy hip implant.

Who can I sue in my DePuy Lawsuit?

DePuy ASR hip replacements are manufactured by DePuy, which is a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson.  Downtown L.A. Law Group will make sure that all parties involved are named as potential defendants, including DePuy, Johnson & Johnson, and even the medical practitioners  who were involved in the process.

How much should I expect to recover for my DePuy hip replacement claim?

Each individual suffers differently when experiencing a failed hip implant.  For some, they have to miss time from work, or might not be able to go back to work at all.  Additionally, users experience varying degrees of pain and suffering.  At Downtown L.A. Law Group, we work to maximize your compensation, including:
  • Past and future medical bills
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering – Individuals who have had to deal with a failed hip implant suffer consequences of repeated hospital visits, pain incurred with additional procedures, and past and future loss of mobility.

How long will my DePuy lawsuit last?

Some attorneys will try to settle your case at the earliest time in order to save the time and energy they will incur as a result of fighting against powerful drug companies.  This is a huge disservice to the patient.  Although the client has the final decision in all settlement matters, it is our job to present you with all the facts and to litigate your case as vigorously as possible. With that said, some cases last less than a year, and even as little as 6 months.  Others take over 2 years to reach a conclusion.

Should I accept the DePuy recall offer?

DePuy Orthopedics has indicated that they will compensate patients for their recall-related medical expenses.  These include medical expenses directly related to the recall, as well as any out-of-pocket expenses such as co-pays and travel expenses. However, as mentioned above, this only covers a fraction of the potential expenses.  Patients have often suffered loss of income, and additional medical damages as a result of the defect.  Futhermore, the recall will not compensate you for your pain and suffering, or any side-effects that will result as a corollary to the defective device

Should I join a DePuy class action lawsuit?

Several class action lawsuits have already been filed against the manufacturer of the DePuy ASR hip implants.  However, class action lawsuits often limit the amount of compensation, as plaintiffs are categorized into their type of injuries.  As such, plaintiffs with moderate to severe injuries suffer uniquely, and therefore will probably only receive a fraction that they would receive.  This is because individual factors such as pain and suffering, or lost wages are not taken into account.
