DePuy ASR Implant Lawsuits

DePuy ASR Implant Lawsuits: "If you received the DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System or ASR Hip Resurfacing System, DePuy or Johnson & Johnson may have sent you paperwork regarding the recall of these devices. Patients may wish to speak with a lawyer about their legal options before seeing a doctor and signing any documents, as patients who sign documents from DePuy or Johnson & Johnson may be signing a waiver that may prevent them from receiving any additional compensation from the companies, should medical complications arise in the future.
Though some compensation may be provided to patients from the companies following the recall of the ASR devices, the compensation may not fully cover the medical bills that may add up following hip replacement surgery. The compansation also does not cover many blood tests or diagnostic tests that may be required by a doctor to ensure a patient is healthy and to check for a serious condition assocaited with the devices known as 'metallosis.' The financial assistance may not cover additional expenses or pain and suffering, lost wages and loss of earning capacity."
