Pursuing Justice For Victims Of Defective Pharmaceutical Drugs
The DePuy orthopedic hip implants were first approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2005 and were marketed as an effective implant for hip surgery. Soon after its release, it was discovered that the DePuy product resulted in an extraordinarily high rate of hip implant failures.
Unfortunately, advertisements failed to explain the complications associated with DePuy hip implants. They belong to a series of implants known as metal-on-metal (MoM) hip implants, which have been known to carry a higher risk of creating metal debris in the hip joint when the implant is improperly aligned. Consumers have also suffered other severe side effects from the drug, including additional hip replacement or revision surgery, severe hip pain, and muscle and tissue damage from debris.
If you or a loved one has endured complications from a DePuy hip implant, we will investigate thoroughly to uncover any acts of negligence. The pharmaceutical litigation attorneys at our firm work with industry-leading experts to help determine any liability factors, including false advertising, product defects and manufacturing defects.
Our aggressive approach often prompts insurance companies to make large settlement offers covering medical expenses, rehabilitation, lost wages and other expenses incurred from medical malpractice. If the settlement offer is too low, we will not hesitate to pursue a favorable trial verdict.
