How do I file a claim for damages?
You should contact the DePuy hip replacement lawyers of our firm. We can help injured individuals understand their rights and find out if they have a DePuy ASR hip replacement or not. It is important to contact the doctor who performed the surgery and find out if the hip replacement is a DePuy hip replacement. If it is, follow up with the physician to see if you need corrective surgery to replace your implant. You should NOT contact or speak to a representative of DePuy Orthopaedic of Johnson & Johnson, fill out or sign any documents from them. Anything you do sign or fill out could be used against you and eventually hurt your claim.
How do I know if that is the implant I have?
First, check with your physician to see if you have a DePuy hip implant. If so, following up with your physician and report any symptoms you may be having such as pain, swelling, difficulty moving or difficulty walking. Severe symptoms can indicate that you may have a dislocation of the ball and socket, fracture of the bone surrounding the implant or loose implant. Your doctor may order an X-ray or MRI in order to see if your implant is defective and you may potentially require surgery.
Which implant was recalled?
The DePuy hip recall only involves the ASR Hip Replacement Systems specifically the DePuy ASR XL Acetabular and DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing Systems sold between 2005 and 2009. The DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System was denied for usage in the United States, so most Americans need only be concerned if they have a DePuy ASR XL Acetabular Hip Replacement System.
