If you or a loved one suffered adverse side effects from the DePuy ASR Hip Replacement device, this page is for you. Thousands of people have suffered awful side effects from this defective product but some may be hesitant in filing a claim. They may be worried about a long, drawn out litigation process or are intimidated by the thought of taking on a big company like Johnson & Johnson (the parent company of DePuy).
We understand how you’re feeling. Our Virginia medical malpractice law firm has represented hundreds of clients who suffered serious injuries and were initially unsure whether they should even bother with filing a claim. Our advice is for you to at least sit down and talk with a medical malpractice attorney to discuss your legal options.

It is also very important to take action sooner rather than later due to the Virginia Statute of Limitations. A “statute of limitations” basically establishes a finite period of time for a plaintiff (which would be you in a legal action against Johnson & Johnson) to file a claim. For Depuy hip replacement injury claims, the statute of limitations in Virginia is two years.
The recall of the DePuy hip replacement device occurred in November of 2010. Therefore, many injured patients who have waited to take action may be prohibited if they do not initiate a legal claim this year, depending on the date they underwent the hip replacement and when they started to suffer side effects.
