Woman Files Suit in Federal Court Against DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc.,/Johnson & Johnson Over Recalled Hip Device
Date:3/9/2011

YUKON, Okla., March 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Sandra Smith filed suit today in the federal court assigned to handle the multi-district litigation over a failed hip replacement system from Johnson & Johnson, Inc., and DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., 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 Ms. Smith.

Smith, of Yukon, underwent surgeries on March 3, 2009 and November 24, 2009 to implant the Johnson & Johnson/DePuy Orthopaedics ASR XL Acetabular device in her left and right hips. On November 22, 2010, Smith was forced to have a revision surgery to replace the failed, defective recalled ASR components in her left hip.

"We are filing this case to protect Ms. Smith's rights and to ensure that she is fairly compensated for her damages and injuries," said attorney John David Hart.  "Ms. Smith was forced to have a major surgery to replace a failed, recalled hip.  This surgery would have been completely unnecessary if the Johnson & Johnson/DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. hip replacement system had been safe and effective, as promised."

DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., a division of Johnson & 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.

John David Hart and the Law Offices of John David Hart represent many individuals throughout 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.
