Medical Negligence Claims – DePuy ASR hip replacement

Most of the claims against DePuy, a part of the American conglomerate Johnson and Johnson, are product liability claims due to the poor design of the implant. However, a claim may turn into a medical negligence claim if it can be shown that the ASR hip replacement implant manufactured by DePuy International Ltd was fitted incorrectly or was not suitable for the patient. Victims could be eligible to apply for compensation for resulting  injuries suffered and for any financial losses incurred caused by the defective product.
