Carrie Patrizi of Beaumont, Texas, has filed a lawsuit against DePuy Orthopaedics Inc., and Johnson & Johnson Services Inc., in the Eastern District of Texas, Beaumont Division, alleging the companies knew the ASR XL Acetabular Hip Replacement devices were prone to fail within two years, even though the device is promoted as lasting over 15 years, the Southeast Texas Record reported.

Patrizi had hip replacement surgery in 2009 and the defendants voluntarily recalled the ASR devices in 2010. In the lawsuit, Patrizi said she would not have had the implant if she had known that she would have to undergo a second surgery to remove the hip replacement.

According to the lawsuit, Patrizi accuses DePuy and J&J of negligent misrepresentation, intentional misrepresentation, negligence, design defect, strict products liability, inadequate warning, failure to adequately test, failure to conform to representation, breach of express warranty, fraudulent concealment, and breach of implied warranty.

The lawsuit seeks loss of earnings, medical expenses, loss of consortium, pain and suffering, disfigurement, emotional distress, punitive damages, damages for bodily impairment, attorney’s fees, and interest and court costs.
