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.
