									DePuy Patients Continue to Fight For Proper Compensation

Everson, Washington – Patients who have been part of the ASR recall that was announced by
DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. had more than their fair share of trouble and pain because of the
defective device that was implanted on their body. About 93,000 people all over the world are
part of the worldwide recall of DePuy’s two hip replacement device, the DePuy ASR XL
Acetabular system, and the DePuy ASR hip resurfacing system.

                                   DePuy Orthopaedics, being aware of the trouble they have
                                   caused the patients who received their recalled hip
                                   replacements offered to reimburse the “out of the pocket”
                                   medical expenses of the patients. However, it seems that the
                                   company offers less than what they are responsible for to the
                                   patients.

                                   Being part of the recall, which was due to the reported high
                                   revision rate of the products caused a lot of damage to the
                                   patients. Some patients have experienced symptoms such as
                                   pain in the groin, difficulty in walking and swelling the hip area.
                                   Some more unfortunate patients need to undergo revision
                                   surgery which means that the existing device will be removed
                                   from their body and another device would be implanted.

Undergoing revision surgery poses a high risk to the health and safety of the patient. The
procedure usually takes a lot longer than their first operation, since in the revision surgery, two
processes would be done, the removal of the existing defective hip replacement device and
the implant of the new device in the body. This means that they would take more time for the
body to heal and recover from the surgery.

Because of all the damages that the device has caused them, some patients who are part of
the DePuy recalls decided to consult Hip recall lawyers to know that legal actions they can take
about the matter. Expert lawyers, aside from giving patients legal advice on the matter can also
represent them in court in case they decide to file DePuy hip recall class action.

Some patients believe that filing lawsuits and taking the matter to the court is one of the best
ways for them to get the proper compensation they deserve from the company, and not merely
the reimbursement of “out of the pocket” expenses that the company offers them.

 Patients who have experienced a lot of problem because of being part of a recall are still
hoping that they would be able to get what is right for them regarding the matter, and not just
let the company get away with the responsibilities that they owe to the patients.
