Colorado Mass Tort Attorneys – Burg Simpson

DePuy ASR® Hip Replacement

Burg Simpson has extensive experience in litigating artificial joint cases and is at the forefront of litigation involving the recalled DePuy Orthopaedic Inc. ASR® Hip Resurfacing System and ASR® XL Acetabular System implants.

Burg Simpson shareholder, Seth A. Katz, has been appointed by the Hon. David A. Katz to serve as a member of the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in the multidistrict litigation against DePuy and Johnson & Johnson.

DEPUY ASR® RECALL

In 2010, DePuy undertook steps to withdraw these medical devices after reports published in Britain revealed that between 12 to 13 percent of patients receiving the ASR® Hip Resurfacing System and/or the ASR® XL Acetabular System would need corrective surgery within five years – a rate more than twice the industry average. According to DePuy, evidence suggests that the risk of revision surgery is greater in female patients and recipients of devices with a head size of less than 50mm in diameter.

Concerns surrounding the quality of the ASR® Hip Resurfacing System and ASR® XL Acetabular System first surfaced several years ago, after it emerged that an increasing number of patients fitted with these implants were forced to undergo painful and expensive operations after their devices failed. According to reports, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has received more than 400 complaints regarding these devices since the start of 2008.

Burg Simpson’s defective medical device attorneys have successfully litigated hundreds of cases involving defective artificial hip replacements over the last 36 years. Our expansive resources, experience, and knowledge of complex artificial joint litigation in state and federal courts and in the multidistrict Litigation (MDL) arena enable us to provide high-caliber, aggressive representation.

If you or a loved one has experienced serious pain or required corrective surgery following either an ASR® Hip Resurfacing System or an ASR® XL Acetabular System implant, you may be entitled to compensation. We urge you to contact us now.

Our award-winning medical device attorneys would be happy to review your records to determine whether you have a viable case against DePuy Orthopaedic Inc.

DePuy has agreed to resolve claims of injury as a result of the ASR hip system. The initial Settlement Agreement, dated November 13, 2013, compensates ASR patients who had surgery to replace their ASR hip system, known as revision surgery, before August 31, 2013. The second Settlement Agreement is dated March 2, 2015 and compensates eligible ASR patients who had ASR revision surgery between August 31, 2013 and January 31, 2015.

Those who have had revision surgery after January 31, 2015 are not eligible for these two settlement agreements but may still be entitled to compensation. We urge you to contact us right away so we can evaluate whether you have a viable claim.

Act now. Many have already filed a lawsuit. Indecision could mean losing the opportunity to receive just compensation.
