Understanding Your Rights For Hip Replacement
Right here in Santa Rosa and across California many have experienced difficulties due to defective hip implant. Victims who have suffered pain, discomfort, and other complications after receiving a DePuy ASR hip implant may have the right to compensation. The issue has to do with the premature hip failure of the all-metal devices that have been implanted.
In fact, due to the abundance of cases involving faulty devices, several hip implant manufacturers are being held accountable. Since companies failed to adequately warn the public about the risks involved in their produces, thousands of lawsuits have been filed by people who experience problems after receiving the ASR implant as a part of their replacement.
Rights To Compensation Could Include
If you are a good candidate for a defective hip replacement lawsuit, your rights would include pursuit of compensation that could cover:
