In August 2010 DePuy Orthopaedics voluntarily recalled the ASR hip replacement and hip resurfacing system.
The recall has affected thousands of patients all over the world. It was initiated as a result of independent research which indicated that approximately 12% of hip resurfacing and 13% of hip replacement patients required revision surgery within five years of having the original surgery. The statistics were alarming, hence DePuy announcing its recall of the system.
If you think you may have been affected by the ASR hip system, you may be suffering from the following symptoms:-
DePuy are encouraging patients who have previously had ASR hip system surgery to undergo investigative testing so that their consultant can assess and determine their future treatment needs.
Many patients are looking to pursue claims against DePuy and we would strongly recommend you seek legal advice to learn about your legal options before you initiate a claim. If you have been unfortunate enough to be affected by the ASR hip system, then you may be entitled to bring a compensation claim against DePuy for the pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused together with any out of pocket expenses you have incurred, such as loss of earnings, travel expenses, medical expenses and any care and support you have received.
If you have been affected and would like to know if you are entitled to claim compensation, then please contact Robert Dempsey on 01775 764167 who will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
