This is encouraging news to people who may have had their own first-hand experience of the complications related to their hip implants. I came across some information from a site called DePuy Hip Recall Information Center and found that the recent case against Johnson & Johnson is not the only legal challenge that the company is facing. In fact, another hip device-related trial against J&J has already been set in motion in Chicago.

The victory of Kransky in the DePuy ASR trial may bode well for the other victims. This may be considered truly justice for them. They have suffered a lot and their lives have been wasted. What is worse, if failure rate is almost 50%, then this means almost half of the hip implant recipients may face severe complications. Learn about these failure rates in sites devoted to hip implant victims like the DePuy hip lawsuit information center.

It's good that the jury has decided in favor of the complainant. I have seen many of these cases on the news and believe that those who were wronged may really be able to get the proper compensation. I have also seen some stories of men and women at depuypinnaclelawsuit. com on how they suffered great pain because of their implants. Hope it turns out well for them too.

Eventhough, hip replacement serves as a refuge to people with severe hip rheumatoid arthritis, the public needs to know that there is a potentially for metal poisoning, inflammation and pain. If you want to know more about bone health and related injuries, there are articles that I bumped into at http://hipsettlementandcompensation.webnode.c... that may be of great help to you.

This case will set precident to other cases that are currently being heard in courts around the United States. If the medical companies are now on the defensive and stand to lose millions more who knows that they may do. For more info visit http://www.pinnaclelawsuit.com/
