Get all the facts before accepting injury reimbursements

The attorneys at Tennessee's Bart Durham Injury Law have over 75 years of experience in bringing product liability and other personal injury cases to trial. Because of this, we understand that many consumers who were injured as a result of using defective medical devices want to put the incident behind them as soon as possible. In many cases, however, it may be beneficial to refrain from signing any settlements or other claims documentation until you have enough information to make a well-informed decision on your legal options

One of the most well-known defective medical product cases involves DePuy hip replacements. These devices were found to cause a number of health problems, including continuous discomfort, hip fractures, pain and implant dislocation. In some cases, linking these types of injuries to the implants may result in compensation for both monetary losses and psychological damage caused by the defective hip replacements. 

According to DePuy's ASR Hip Recall Guide, the company is offering reimbursements for those who have been affected by its 2010 hip device recall. DePuy states that it will address medical costs and other related expenses that stemmed from the defective product, such as deductibles and lost wages. The company statement does not mention any reimbursement for pain and suffering.

It is easy to feel frustrated and helpless after suffering an injury due to a defective medical product, but it is important to remember that you may have actionable claims against the parties responsible for your injuries. Because of this, you may want to refrain from submitting any claims until you have all the facts about your legal options. If you would like to learn more about the legal remedies available to those with malfunctioning hip replacements, please visit our page on the DePuy Hip Replacement Recall.
