Personal Injury Law Firm Now Accepting Potential Cases for Stryker® and DePuy Hip Implants
BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich., June 24, 2013 — Michigan personal injury law firm Michigan Injury Lawyers is now accepting defective product claims for possible injuries resulting from use of Stryker® Orthopaedics’ Rejuvenate modular and ABG II modular-neck hip stem implants and Johnson & Johnson’s DePuy ASR™ Hip Resurfacing Systems and ASR™ XL Acetabular Systems.
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, on July 6, 2012, Stryker initiated a voluntary recall of its modular-neck hip stems. DePuy issued a voluntary recall in August 2010 for its resurfacing and acetabular systems.
Personal Injuries Associated with Hip Implant Recalls
Injuries and complications associated with the Stryker and DePuy hip implant recalls include:
- Stryker Orthopaedics
Fretting and corrosion (wear and tear) may occur within the devices, which could cause adverse tissue reactions and pain and swelling in certain individuals. Stryker hip implant recipients may experience the effects of metallosis, which is a buildup of metal debris in the body’s soft tissues.
- DePuy Systems
DePuy artificial joint systems that don’t properly fit could be associated with high failure rates that require second surgeries. Serious pain and difficulty walking may result from such faulty hip replacements.
Injured victims may be eligible for compensation associated with injury-related expenses including those associated with medical bills and future medical treatment, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
