When a person needs a part of their body replaced, it can be a nerve-wracking experience but they hope that they can trust in their doctors and the manufacturers of the implants to complete a successful replacement. In 2010, there was a massive recall of DePuy hip and knee implants that are used for replacements. The victims of this recall have suffered serious injuries and many of them had to go through revision surgeries.
Having a hip or knee replaced takes sometimes as much as six months of recovery. However, if you received an implant manufactured by DePuy, you may actually have a significantly longer amount of time to recover because the implants can come loose and require a total revision surgery. This faulty medical device can cause months of time out of work, lost wages, and further medical expenses. If this is the case, you may be able to bring a claim against DePuy Orthopaedics and have your medical expenses covered. It is important that you receive justice for the delinquencies committed against you. You should be able to trust in your doctors and manufacturers to successfully replace your hip or knee. If something has gone wrong, you can trust in the faulty medical device attorneys at Tomes & Hanratty, P.C. to recover damages for your injuries.
