In Tennessee and all across the country as well as all across the world, people know about the Depuy hip recalls and all the trouble they have caused millions of people with the failed hip implants. Many people with these implants have had to undergo multiple surgeries to get the problems fixed, not to mention pain and problems in their daily lives due to the failing implants. If you or someone you know has had to suffer due to a failing Depuy hip implant, then you should speak with a Tennessee Depuy recall and defective product lawyer as soon as possible. They will hear your case and work with you to make sure you get the compensation you need for what you have been through.
The Depuy Company is now stating that they will offer compensation for out of pocket expenses for the failure of their XL Acetabular System hip implants. These claims do not mention other costs. Depuy’s statement is they “will “cover reasonable and customary costs of testing and treatment if patients need services, including revision surgery if necessary.” The statement fails to say that patients have to fill out documents and send in evidence proving that they have a failing Depuy implant before even qualifying for these payments. This statement also fails to say that if a patient signs and sends in these documents they are agreeing to give Depuy x-rays, explants, and other medical information after a second surgery is performed. This means that in order to receive payment for a second surgery or other treatment, patients have to give their personal information and failed implant to Depuy. Depuy also says that they pay for patients’ co-pays, travel, and lost wages but then state that “These costs will be more clearly defined shortly and are subject to review on a case-by-case basis.”
Many people have suffered from these hip failures including caregivers who have to help out with loved ones, children whose parents or grandparents may not be able to care for them anymore, and coworkers and employers who have to cover for the person who is out of work due to this failure. Finally, people who suffered from these hip implants failing may need to move to different homes or have homes modified to fit their needs and some may need to be on permanent disability. These out of pocket expenses that Depuy is willing to pay will not cover all these costs.
