DePuy Metal on Metal Hip Implant | The American Association For Justice

DePuy Metal on Metal Hip Implant

Description:

Numerous lawsuits have already been filed in state and federal court stemming from the August 2010 DePuy Hip Implant recall. This litigation is growing extremely rapidly as victims of the medical device learn about the recall, and a MDL Judicial Panel hearing has already taken place.

Formed in December 2010, the new DePuy Metal on Metal Hip Implant Litigation Group will inform members about causes and symptoms of the hip implant failure. The Group will provide a forum for sharing information, ideas, and materials, while educating members about the types of Metal on Metal acetabular components that are the subject of premature failure and toxic exposure to chromium and cobalt, specifically focusing on the DePuy ASR (with some emphasis on the DePuy Pinnacle). Members will receive the most up to date information about the litigation, science, and injuries.
