DePuy Hip Recall News Center
You’ve just learned about the DePuy recall. What now? You might consider legal action. So you’ll want to talk to an attentive advocate who will put your needs above all other concerns.
DePuy admitted that it is to blame for your hip failure. DePuy stated that it is committed to assisting patients and paying for the cost of doctor visits, tests, and procedures.

The ASR recall is one of the largest of its kind. It’s impossible to give a one-size-fits-all figure, but the most important factor in determining the amount of compensation a person might receive from a DePuy lawsuit or settlement is the extent to which the device injured him or her.
The 2010 DePuy ASR hip recall affected roughly 93,000 people worldwide, 37,000 of which were patients who received the implant in the United States. To date, more than 10,000 of these patients have filed lawsuits in state and federal courts all around the country. But the latest news is that all pending cases might be settled out of court…
