Woman Files Suit in Beaumont, Texas Federal Court Against DePuy Orthopaedics and Johnson & Johnson Over Recalled Hip Device
Date:3/10/2011

LIBERTY, Texas, March 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Donna L. Jenkins filed suit today in the United States District Court in Beaumont, Texas, over a failed hip replacement system from Johnson & Johnson, Inc. and DePuy Orthopaedics that was recalled from the market.  John David Hart of the Law Offices of John David Hart in Fort Worth, Texas, is the attorney representing her.

On November 9, 2006, Ms. Jenkins, an active owner of a horse ranch in Liberty County, Texas, underwent surgery to implant the Johnson & Johnson/DePuy Orthopaedics ASR XL Acetabular hip replacement system. The device began to fail in less than three years, causing hip pain, lack of mobility, and elevated levels of cobalt and chromium in her blood system. Ms. Jenkins was forced to have revision surgery on December 14, 2010. She is now undergoing enormous strains as she tries to put her health and her life back together.

"Donna Jenkins is suffering the life-changing consequences of having a dangerous, defective device in her body," attorney John David Hart said. "DePuy advertised the ASR device as being a superior, high-performance hip replacement. For Ms. Jenkins and her family, nothing was further from the truth.  She seeks reasonable compensation for her injuries and damages."

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 in 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.

John David Hart and the Law Offices of John David Hart represent many individuals 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, oil and gas litigation.
