One’s family is the most important part of everybody’s life. Keeping them away from harm is always part of our goal. We wish we could share their pains and burdens. We do anything we can in order to spare them from any kind of pains. The families of those affected by the recent DePuy hip recall must be in great anger.
People who have undergone a hip replacement are said to be in danger of a serious fall than people who have undergone any other orthopedic procedure are found out by a recent study. This fact would depress anyone who has in their family someone who has gone through a hip replacement surgery. This case is a serious and sensitive one.
Around 93, 000 individuals were recently affected badly of the DePuy hip recall. A lot of anger has been felt by these families against DePuy because they failed to be responsible with their products. This anger has led them to file a DePuy lawsuit.
The affected families believe that the only way to seek revenge for all the pains their family has suffered is to let the manufacturer pay for the damages they have done. Everybody wants that they can be compensated for the damages that the DePuy hip implants created.
In this certain case, the law states that these affected individuals are eligible to pay for economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages covers the money you used to pay for the medical support for the pains brought by your defective hip implant. The money you lost because you were not able to go to work, its damage to your property, and the money for your caretaker is also being covered by this. On the other hand, the individual’s pains that cannot be paid by an exact amount are covered by the so called non-economic damages. This includes one’s pain and suffering, disability, mental anguish, loss of companionship, and diminished enjoyment of life.
