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, where it joins many lawsuits consolidated in product liability multidistrict litigation, on behalf of an Oklahoma woman who suffered pain and injuries allegedly due to the DePuy ASR hip implant. The lawsuit names DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., DePuy Inc., DePuy International Limited, Johnson & Johnson, Johnson & Johnson Services, Inc. and Johnson & Johnson International as defendants.

According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff was implanted with the DePuy ASR hip in April 2007. In May 2012, she was forced to undergo risky revision surgery because of pain, device locking, and a serious condition known as metallosis, caused when metal debris shed from the device and enters the blood stream. The lawsuit alleges that the plaintiff suffered injuries from both the implantation and explantation of the ASR device.

In August 2010, DePuy Orthopaedics recalled the ASR hip implant device due to a high premature failure rate, while the Food and Drug Administration advisory panel, last month, issued their decision that metal-on-metal hip devices had little use in the orthopedic world.
