Recent reports have begun emerged regarding the products liability suits that will be brought with regards to DePuy’s Hip Replacements. DePuy is a unit of Johnson & Johnson, a company; no stranger to this Fort Lauderdale Injury Attorney and as has been mentioned in many of our blog discussions; as well as through our years of representing prior product injury clients.
Apparently, there are many recipients of the Articular Surface Replacement, the Hip Replacement Device or Implant from DePuy, who are claiming to develop unusual pain. Even possibly more disturbing is the fact that their surgeons, who are replacing the DePuy Orthopaedics and implants, have discovered mysterious masses of dead or necrotic tissue near the patient’s thighs. A number of the patients have been alleged to have had high levels of cobalt ions in their blood, causing concern over poisoning risks. Due to the many lawsuits that are being filed, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multi-District Litigation has consolidated the suits into the Northern District of Ohio.
