Defective Hip Implant Could Affect Residents of Dallas, Texas

In August 2010, two types of hip implants were recalled: the DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System, a hip socket replacement, and the DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System. These implants were manufactured by DePuy Orthopedics and were recalled due to what is believed, at this time, to be a design defect. The metal-on-metal hip implants, when improperly placed, can release metal particles into the body and inflame surrounding tissue and cause bone loss. Serious pain and corrective surgery often accompany defective implants.

Currently, over 93,000 implants have been recalled, and since 2008, the FDA has received over 400 complaints of implant failure. The product liability attorneys of The Cochran Firm’s Dallas, Texas office are now accepting these cases. If you or someone you love has suffered the serious pain associated with this defective device or if you have had to undergo additional surgeries to correct the problem, you may be entitled to compensation for your suffering.

Experts have reported that the DePuy Hip Implants were introduced without adequate testing and research of the devices, and, because of this, hundreds, maybe thousands of Americans have suffered needlessly. When companies place profits over patients, those companies and the people involved should be held accountable. That is where our hard-working, dedicated product liability attorneys come in. Our attorneys and legal team will fight diligently to get you the compensation to which you are entitled if you suffered due to this defective artificial hip. The pain associated with these devices, according to victims, is severe, and the surgeries to correct the problem can require weeks, months, or even years of recovery time.

Let us fight your legal battle while you focus on healing. If you live in the Dallas, Texas area and have suffered due to a defective DePuy hip implant, please contact The Cochran Firm's Dallas, Texas office today to schedule a no-cost, no-obligation consultation so we may hear the details of your case.
