Product Liability Attorney Advising ASR Hip Replacement Recall Victims on Ways to Protect Themselves from Further Harm



Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) September 30, 2010 –

ASR hip implants manufactured by DePuy Orthopaedic, Inc., a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson have been recalled in the United States and Worldwide. The medical device company issued the hip implant recall after an independent research study released by the National Joint Registry found that the ASR hip implant had failure rates of up to 13%, well above the acceptable average.

According to the study, out of the 93,000 ASR hip replacement patients, 12,000 may experience hip replacement failure within 5 years. Most hip implants last for 15-20 years on average. Victims of the ASR hip implant recall may require a painful second revision surgery to correct the failing hip implant.

An investigative report released by the New York Times in 2008 revealed that hip replacement surgery is an intensive medical treatment costing up to ,000, requiring 2-4 days of hospitalization and months of physical therapy rehabilitation.

To protect the rights of hip replacement recall victims, the California product liability lawyers of Nagelberg Bernard Law Group have compiled the following information on steps to take if affected by the ASR Hip Recall. http://www.4injured-losangeles.com/practice-areas/product-liability/hip-replacement-recall/

1. Find Out If You Have a Recalled ASR Hip Implant

Contact your doctor or the hospital that performed the hip implant surgery to determine if your hip replacement implant was involved in the ASR hip replacement recall.

2. Which Defective Hip Implant Devices Are Being Recalled?

The hip implant recall involves all of the devices used in DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc.’s ASR™ XL Acetabular System and DePuy ASR™ Hip Resurfacing Platform.

3. What are the Symptoms of Hip Implant Failure?

Defective hip implants can cause crippling pain and impair the quality of life for those affected by the hip implant recall. Hip implant failure can cause bone fractures, hip joint dislocation, inflammation, infection, and extreme discomfort.

4. How Many People Are Affected by the Hip Implant Recall?

The National Joint Registry, an independent medical research team has discovered that 1 out of every 8 hip replacement patients will likely require a second hip implant operation, called a revision surgery. Out of the 93,000 people that have undergone hip implant surgery with an ASR Hip Implant, an estimated 12,000 may now require the hip replacement revision surgery.

5. Should I Speak with a DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. Representative?

Never speak to any DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. or Johnson & Johnson representatives or sign any documents. Anything you say or any documents that you sign may endanger your personal injury claim and be used against you as evidence in court.

6. How Can a Product Liability Attorney Help Me?

Utilizing a qualified and experienced hip implant product liability lawyer will ensure that your rights are protected, that you receive the best medical care possible, and you are justly compensated for any loss of income and pain and suffering endured.

LegalView Informs Parents of Crib Recall Following Several Infant Deaths Caused by Asphyxiation from Improper Crib Mechanisms



Denver, CO (PRWEB) January 11, 2009

Legalview.info, the number one resource for everything and anything legal on the Web, recently announced a crib recall of Delta Enterprises cribs, which have been linked to several infant deaths because of an allegedly faulty drop-side rail and peg mechanisms. In December 2008, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (UPSC) along with Delta recalled the cribs due to “side rails on certain Delta cribs that were breaking in ways that could trap and kill babies,” according to the Chicago Tribune. However, according to an in-depth investigation by the Chicago Tribune there were a “long trail of warning signs that began at least a decade before this fall’s recall.”



Individuals who have been victim to the crib’s dangers are encouraged to contact an experienced crib recall attorney or crib recall lawyer for a free legal consultation on the development of a potential crib recall lawsuit, which may offer monetary compensation to pay for any treatments of injuries caused by the crib’s dangers. Additionally, LegalView will be providing updated information on its crib recall information portal to provide parents and potential victims of the Delta crib recall with the latest news regarding the investigation and dangers surrounding the crib incident.



In addition to LegalView providing updated resources for parents on the crib recall, LegalView also provides a plethora of legal topics to choose from for those who may be suffering from an array of legal dilemmas including a traumatic brain injury, truck accident or mesothelioma diagnosis. 



Individuals who are one of the 5.4 million U.S. citizens currently suffering from a brain injury can find assistance not only by contacting a knowledgeable brain injury medical professional, but by also contacting a well-informed traumatic brain injury lawyer who can provide a free legal consultation on the details of a potential brain injury lawsuit that may result in a monetary compensation to aid payment of expensive medical treatments.



Similarly, individuals of a truck accident, which is often deemed the most costly and fatal of all vehicular accidents, are encouraged to not only have their injuries checked out by a professional emergency medical services provider, but to also locate a truck accident attorney. By locating a truck accident lawyer, individuals may be able to develop detailed litigation on their individual case that may provide a monetary sum for damages incurred. 



LegalView also offers information on mesothelioma as well as how victims can obtain assistance by contacting a mesothelioma attorney. Mesothelioma is a cancer that is caused after a victim has inhaled asbestos fibers or dust. The fibers cause the creation of cancerous cells forming on the interior lining of the lungs and organs. The cancer is often considered a silent disease because it remains dormant in a victim for several years, most commonly 10 to 30 years. By the time a mesothelioma diagnosis is determined, it is often too late.
