DePuy Hip Implant Lawsuits: Allegations Of Shoddy Design & Rushing Devices To Market


DePuy hip implant recall attorneys say that the DePuy him implant lawsuits already filed allege that the manufacturer, a division of Johnson & Johnson (J&J), was negligent in designing, testing and/or manufacturing of the ASR XL Acetabular Cup System and the DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System.

In addition, medical experts say that the shoddy designing of many metal-on-metal implants, including the DePuy ASR Acetabular System and the DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System, was the unfortunate result of the competitive frenzy that occurred when metal-on-metal hip implants suddenly gained in popularity several years ago.
It seems that while every hip replacement device company wanted a piece of the hip replacement profit potential, some designers sacrificed quality and precision for speed. Cutting figurative corners like this may have led directly to the hip implants themselves cutting the actual corners of the rotating moving metal hip joints – resulting in serious and painful side effects such as tissue death near and around the hip replacements.
