The national law firm of Parker Waichman LLP has filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, Western Division on behalf of a man who suffered pain and complications allegedly caused by the DePuy ASR Hip implant. The lawsuit joins many other cases in multidistrict litigation against defendants DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., DePuy Inc., DePuy International Limited, Johnson & Johnson, Johnson & Johnson Services, Inc., and Johnson & Johnson International.
The lawsuit says the plaintiff received the DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant in July 2007, after which he began to experience pain in weakness in his leg and hip. The suit claims that DePuy failed to warn consumers and physicians about the risks associated with the device, and that the plaintiff was unaware of these risks until the company issued a global recall of the ASR device in 2010.
