The American Association for Justice in citing Bloomberg News, reports that the Plaintiff in the first artificial hip case against DePuy has gone to trial. The Plaintiff has testified in a Los Angeles courtroom that even though he had had numerous prior surgeries, the surgery to revise the claimed defective artificial hip implanted was the one he feared the most.

The plaintiff Loren Kransky, who is suing DePuy on allegations that debris from his hip implant blackened tissue and poisoned his bloodstream, told the state court jury, “I had 25 surgical procedures done prior to that. … I thought that surgery was going to kill me.” Kransky’s case is the first of the 10,000 pending lawsuits to go to trial over the ASR XL hip implants, 93,000 of which were recalled in August 2010 over exceptionally high failure rates.

We are currently representing Plaintiffs implanted with  the DePuy artificial hips which have required revision surgery. There is evidence that the artificial hip blackens tissue, poisons the bloodstream and loosens causing the patient high pain levels requiring revision surgery.
