If you are someone who underwent hip replacement surgery after the year 2003 and used the DePuy Orthopedics hip replacing system, then you will most likely have heard about the class action suit against the manufacturers. DePuy is a division of Johnson&Johnson medical suppliers and they manufactured the ASR XL Acetabular System and ASR hip replacing unit. These units have been deemed faulty. Approximately 90,000 patients around the world used these products. However both of these products have been deemed faulty by DePuy Orthopedics. As a result the company has done a recall.

The good news is that if a patient has used these products they can fight back. In order to do this, the patient must consider consulting with a DePuy hip replacement lawyer. After doing so, there is a good chance the patient will qualify for compensation. DePuy has claimed that they knew about the problem with ASR XL and ASR hip replacing unit at least 2 years before the products were recalled. DePuy on the other hand has stated that Medicare and health insurance companies will shoulder the burden of the cost of the recall. Victims of the hip replacement products are filing both, class action suits as well as individual law suits.
