DePuy Recalled Hip Device Lawsuit Filed in San Antonio, Texas
Date:3/18/2011

SAN ANTONIO, March 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Garrett Mann filed suit today against Johnson & Johnson, Inc. and DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. seeking compensation for injuries caused by the failure of the DePuy ASR XL Acetabular Hip Replacement System that has been recalled.  John David Hart of the Law Offices of John David Hart in Fort Worth, Texas, is the attorney representing Mr. Mann in the lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas in San Antonio, Texas.

On January 28, 2009, Garrett Mann underwent hip replacement surgery.  A DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System with a DePuy S-ROM femoral stem was implanted in his right hip.  The DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System failed prematurely, creating serious pain and injuries for Mr. Mann and increasing the risk for early revision surgery in the future.

"It is devastating for a thirty year old to face the prospects of a failed hip device," said attorney John David Hart.  "The DePuy Orthopaedics ASR XL Acetabular Hip Replacement System has harmed thousands of patients, from young adults to seniors.  Failure of this recalled hip replacement system has a lifetime of consequences for patients of all ages."

DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., a division of Johnson and Johnson, Inc., recalled its ASR XL Acetabular metal-on-metal hip replacement system on August 24, 2010. This recall came after data from a recent study indicated that the five year failure rate of this product is approximately 13%, or more than 1 out of every 8 patients. DePuy identified reasons for the failure of the hip replacement system as component loosening, component malalignment, infection, fracture of the bone, dislocation, metal sensitivity and pain. Additional complications from the DePuy ASR XL Acetabular hip replacement system may include increased metal ion levels in the blood, bone staining, necrosis, swelling, nerve damage, tissue damage and/or muscle damage. This device was marketed by DePuy Orthopaedics as a high performance hip replacement system.

John David Hart and the Law Offices of John David Hart represent many individuals in the United States who have been injured as a result of this defective hip replacement system.  The Law Offices of John David Hart is a group of experienced and dedicated legal professionals working to protect the rights of people wronged by the acts of others.  Across the country, the firm represents individuals in cases of catastrophic personal injury, wrongful death, dangerous drugs, automobile and truck accidents and oil and gas litigation.
