To estimate the amount of compensation you might receive, it can be helpful to consider two things: the general types of damages available to those injured by defective products, and the outcome of prior hip replacement litigation.
If you think that you might have received an ASR device, you should immediately call your doctor, even if you’re not experiencing discomfort. DePuy has promised to pay for the cost of tests needed to determine if your hip is functioning well.
In 2010, DePuy issued a voluntary recall of its ASR Systems. In doing so, the company effectively admitted that it had manufactured defective hip devices with dangerous problems. But the company isn’t just writing checks to victims.
