Whoa! There surely are a lot of failed hip implant sufferers, be it from Depuy or from other manufacturers like Biomet (see: http://www.rotlaw.com/biomet/ ), who have stood up fought for their legal right againts a defective product that has affected their health and quality of life.

The government prosecutors are conducting an investigation as well regarding how these hip prostheses were marketed. These metal-on-metal hip implants have damaging effects to its users based on media reports. Pain, loosening of the implant, inflammation, and metallosis are some of its complications. Moreover, lawsuits have been filed against some of the manufacturers of these hip prostheses. If you want to know more about bone health and related injuries, there are articles that I bumped into at http://www.strykerhipreplacementrecall.net/la... that may be of great help to you.

Thousands have been filed against Depuy's ASR worldwide. Its just unfortunate that some countries don't entertain complaints such as this one. However your fight for justice doesn't end there. There are 2 ASR lawsuits that were already tried and in fact the jury awarded plaintiff some $8.3 million for compensatory damages. See the DePuy Recall News Center site.

It is unfortunate to read stories like this of people wanting to feel better, yet experienced the opposite. Having to endure the pain and the suffering is not easy. They may file lawsuits against the makers of these hip implant devices such as Biomet but the damage has been done. No amount of money can ever heal the emotional and psychological agony that these people have experienced. If you want to know more about the complications associated with hip replacement surgery, I stumbled upon this site http://biomet-hip-lawsuit.org you may want to check it out.
