Johnson’s DePuy ASR metal-on-metal artificial hip replacement problems are continuing to deepen, with the estimated number of hip failures continuing to increase as more data becomes available. More than a year after Johnson & Johnson issued a DePuy ASR recall for more than 90,000 potentially defective implants, new data indicates that the failure rate within the years after surgery may be more than twice as high as prior estimates suggested.
The hip replacement lawyers at Goldberg Attorneys represent individuals throughout the United States who have experienced problems after receiving one of the recalled Johnson & Johnson DePuy ASR hip implant. However, our law firm is also investigating metal-on-metal hip replacement lawsuits for other brands that feature a similar design.
Metal-on-metal hip replacements, which are a relatively new design, grew to account for about one-third of the 250,000 hip replacements performed in recent years. They became popular due to the belief that the metal structure is more durable than other types of hip implants. However, sales have fallen recently amid concerns about problems with the design, which may cause microscopic metal particles to be shed into the body as the parts of the hip replacement rub against each other.
