Chicago Personal Injury Firm of Salvi, Schostok and Pritchard P.C. Calls Attention to Proposed $2.5 Billion DePuy Hip Implant Settlement
Date:11/26/2013

n. We encourage any patient who received an all-metal hip implant in recent years to learn more about the Stryker and DePuy litigation and to speak with an attorney if they have questions about their legal rights.”

According to Bloomberg News, Johnson & Johnson’s DePuy unit voluntarily recalled the ASR hip implants in August 2010 due to a higher-than-normal failure rate. Bloomberg reports that patients claim metal debris from the metal-on-metal hip implant killed surrounding tissue and caused metal ions to leak into their bloodstream. (“J&J Said to Reach $4 Billion Deal to Settle Hip Lawsuits,” November 13, 2013.)

Stryker voluntarily recalled its all-metal Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck hip implant products in July 2012 due to “the potential risks associated with fretting and corrosion at the modular neck junction,” according to a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announcement.

Ashley said that hip implant patients who have experienced pain, swelling, dislocation or device failure should contact their orthopedic surgeon to find out more about the hip implant they received.

“A physician can let one know if they received a recalled device, or an attorney can contact the physician on the patient’s behalf,” Ashley said.
