The products liability attorneys are alleging that DePuy should have known of the high percentage of failure in many of the patients who have received these implants. Common symptoms associated with many of the patients complaining of these failures have been: symptoms associated with sever pain, inflammation, necrotic tissue and bone, partial or complete loss of range of motion or mobility and the need for revision to excise and replace the implant, causing more significant issues for longer recoveries, and of course, the associated risks of all the known and predictable complications arising from such surgery, including death.
Products liability attorneys are alleging that DePuy and Johnson & Johnson have received hundreds of complaints made to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2007 through 2008, but didn’t issue a recall until late August of 2010. The suits also allege that DePuy has offered doctors $50.00 for obtaining their implant recipient’s consent to receive their medical records; and are requesting doctors to return the implants that have been removed.
