I want to clear up a misconception about the DePuy hip replacement recall: There is no need to wait for a recall letter if you want to file a personal injury claim. This is an understandable misconception since some people may be thinking that it has to be in writing that their DePuy hip replacement was defective. This is not the case.
If you suffered adverse side effects from your DePuy hip replacement or were told to get a new hip replacement due to the massive DePuy recall, then you may have grounds to pursue legal action.
- Difficulty with walking
- Hip replacement device loosens from the bone
- Bone fracturing around the hip replacement
- Dislocation of the hip replacement device
- Metallosis, or dangerous depositions of metal in the soft tissues
You may be wondering what type of compensation you may be entitled to if you decided to pursue legal action. To be honest, we cannot say for sure until we examine your situation more in-depth.
That is why speaking with an attorney to consider your legal options is highly recommended. The type of adverse effects suffered will play a role in calculating compensation along with the amount of medical bills accrued to get a new hip replacement device.
But again, actually sitting down and talking to a lawyer is the best course of action.
