Chesley Files Class Action Against DePuy Orthopaedics
Date:11/4/2010

CINCINNATI, Nov. 4, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Stanley M. Chesley of the Cincinnati, Ohio-based law firm of Waite, Schneider, Bayless & Chesley Co., L.P.A. earlier today filed a major class action lawsuit against DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. and Johnson and Johnson (NYSE: JNJ).

DePuy and Johnson and Johnson recently recalled over 90,000 ASR XL Acetabular hip replacement Systems. The system has an unacceptable failure rate causing patients to undergo hip replacement surgery.

DePuy and Johnson and Johnson notified Chesley's client Carolyn Pearcy that she has a recalled ASR XL Acetabular hip system and advised her, similar to other recipients, to undergo a series of tests. Pearcy believes that her recalled hip was the probable cause of her persistent and excruciating pain.

In her action Pearcy seeks court supervised medical monitoring. The goal is to ensure that every recipient receives without cost necessary medical tests. According to Chesley, "DePuy refuses to accept fundamental financial responsibility. It wants patients and their insurance companies to pay for medical tests required because of DePuy's bad hips."

Pearcy also is seeking damages including punitive damages. Chesley commented that "DePuy and J&J were on notice of the defective system, yet continued to manufacture, market and sell it to innocent victims."

For more than 40 years, Stanley M. Chesley and Waite, Schneider, Bayless & Chesley Co., L.P.A. have represented individuals from across the United States in a variety of personal injury, breach of contract, fraud, and negligence claims, including complex product liability cases, toxic exposure, and dangerous prescription drugs.  More information on the firm is found at http://www.wsbclaw.com.
