DePuy Implant Recipients Urged to Identify Themselves as Victims
When 40,000 Americans received DePuy hip implants, they had no idea the devices would fail after just a few years. Now, the US Drug Watchdog is encouraging every patient with one of the recalled medical devices to identify temselves to federal courts. The fear is that tens of thousands of victims will soon be left with little recourse for receiving compensation when their hip implant begins causing them constant pain and making it difficult, or impossible, for them to walk.
