People who were negatively affected of the recent DePuy hip replacement recall had been suffering not just physically but also financially. When these people started to experience excessive pains from the use of the recalled hip implants, going to a doctor would be the step they would take on. After finding out that the pains were caused using a defective implant, they would complain to the FDA or to the company directly. Filing a lawsuit against the manufacturer of this hip implant would then be necessary in the long run. All of this requires a substantial amount of money. If we think about it, this incident would not have been possible if the makers of the implant were responsible enough. With these, it is only right to pass the financial damages to its manufacturer.
Financial compensation for the damages created by the product is the main goal of this increasing lawsuit filed against DePuy. Here is the question, how much would DePuy give to all the affected people?
Obviously, the compensation needed and wanted by these affected people should be in the form of money. Money as payment for the money they spent on the medical services they need to avail upon experiencing the complications of the defective hip implant. Right now, there is an ongoing class action lawsuit against DePuy Orthopaedics. This is considered by a lot of patients but this is never recommended because this can lessen one’s recovery. In addition, there is also an issue if DePuy is willing to settle the lawsuits or whether they will fight through trial.
At the present, the exact amount of settlement that DePuy is willing to give to the affected individuals is not yet presented. However, everyone must take into account that DePuy has already lost their credibility for releasing the defective product in the market. Can the right settlement still be given by DePuy?
Hiring an experienced hip replacement lawyer is still the best way to ensure on acquiring the right settlement for all your losses. After all, nothing beats than getting the justice you deserve.
