New Lawsuits Filed Against DePuy Orthopedics Related To Defective Hip Replacement Products

ABC 7 News reported on recent lawsuits filed by five Chicago-area patients who received defective DePuy hip replacement products.  The Chicagoland lawsuits are similar to other lawsuits filed against the medical device manufacturer by patients across the country.

New Lawsuits Filed Against DePuy OrthopedicsAt the heart of the issue is DePuy’s negligent design of hip replacement products that release bits of metal into the patients bodies causing severe pain and potential blood poisoning. Though DePuy moved to recall the hip replacement products in 2010, there is mounting evidence that they were aware of problems with the devices significantly earlier.

The pain and medical complications associated with the DePuy products has resulted in some patients requiring additional hip replacement procedures as well as ongoing medical monitoring of the devices.

Justia Lawyer Rating for Jonathan Rosenfeld

Client Reviews

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
