Just an additional information, news reports have it that there is now an increasing number of DePuy ASR lawsuit filed against Johnson and Johnson because of the defective hip devices they marketed from 2003-2010. For osteoporosis patients, make sure that the medications and medical products you avail are safe, effective and long-lasting. Seek medical advice on this. See http://www.depuysettlements.com

Johnson & Johnson has been a major player in the medical device industry but has also been under fire because of consistently growing problems purportedly related to their products. In fact, its orthopedics unit DePuy is currently being closely monitored by the federal government, as what I have read from http://idahoexaminer.com/legal-news/rottenste...

Since the publication of this report, much has already happened. The plaintiff in this case was awarded compensatory damages of $8.33 million. This speaks well for the other thousands of hip implant recipients who also sustained the same injuries.For more details about the case against DePuy, you may want to read up on write-ups available in DePuy ASR hip lawsuit information center.

Based on reports, hip replacements are associated with some complications especially with that all-metal hip implant. Many of its recipient filed lawsuits against its manufacturers for adverse effects they experienced which include inflammation, pain, loosening of hip implant, and metallosis. I came across this site http://hipsettlementandcompensation.blogspot.... and they have recent news and updates about hip replacement problems, you may want to visit it.

This story is similar to others that have transpired before it. As of now, there have been dozens of defective hip replacement lawsuits that have been settled where the company that sold the defective implants have lost. Whether the result will be go in favor of the defendant or the plaintiff remains to be seen, but considering that implant in question was recalled already due to large reports of its defective nature, the outlook does not look good for the defense.
