A lot of the patients who were part of the controversial depuy recalls, that rooted from the high revision rate of the products, namely the DePuy ASR hip resurfacing system and the Depuy ASR XL Acetabular system, have decided to file lawsuits against the manufacturing company of the defective devices.
A lot of them think that the reason behind the recall that brought harm and trouble to thousands of people worldwide is the company’s being negligent and irresponsible. Some of the lawsuits that were filed with the help of a hip lawyer claims that the company has failed to the necessary testing and researching of the products.
They believe that if DePuy has done the necessary measures to ensure the safety of the device they are selling, it wouldn’t have such a high failure rate.
There were also some claims that were saying that the company failed to issue the recall on time. they have gathered evidences that proved that DePuy has received the information about the high revision rate of their products long before they announced the recall. For them, there would be less patients who would be affected by the recall if it was issued earlier, as the patients would have a choice to postpone the surgery or choose another device.
Being part of a recall is a really huge problem, which makes it just right to go after the proper compensation that you deserve from the deliverer of your troubles, like what many of the patients of the recall has done.
