DePuy Hip Replacement Recall Litigation

DePuy Hip Replacement


If you or a loved one has had a hip replacement with a DePuy hip product you may be eligible for a quick settlement of up to $250,000. DePuy Orthopaedics, a division of Johnson & Johnson, announced a recall in August of 2010 for two of its hip replacement products after many patients reported injuries from the flawed all-metal implant and early device failure.


The flawed design of the DePuy hip implant can cause fractures, dislocation, loosening of the implant’s placement, and friction that can result in metallic debris that may cause damage to tissue. These flaws have led to a high rate of patients requiring a second surgery to remove and replace the hip implant. Whether you have had replacement surgery or still have a DePuy Hip Implant, you may be eligible for damages.

Research indicates that many hip replacements can last about 15 years or more. DePuy’s Hip Implant may only last one third as long as typical implants, with projections for 40% failure rate in the first five years. According to the New York Times, over 90,000 people received the now recalled devices. If you have had a hip replacement surgery you may be one of the over 90,000 patients. If you believe that you or a loved one has had a DePuy hip implant, regardless of whether you have had the implant replaced, you may be entitled to a claim including financial compensation. Urban Thier & Federer, P.A. encourages all patients potentially affected by this recall to immediately seek competent legal counsel. Please contact our Orlando office to discuss your right with one of our attorneys.

Urban Thier & Federer, P.A. is currently actively involved in enforcing claimants legal rights, which must be timely made as part of the complex federal court litigation pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio and styled In RE: DePUY ORTHOPAEDICS, INC. ASR HIP IMPLANT PRODUCTS.
