Legal News90-New York Times article details costs related to hip replacement failure lawsuits

The failure of certain all-metal hip replacement devices may add up to billions of dollars in costs for taxpayers, insurers, employers and others, according to an article published in The New York Times on Dec. 28.

The news comes at a time when personal injury lawyers are reviewing complaints by hip implant patients who needed a second hip replacement procedure, known as revisionary surgery, due to defects in devices manufactured by DePuy Orthopedics Inc. Attorneys say lawsuits have been filed by people who have been affected by DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System and DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System.

The New York Times article describes the case of a hip replacement patient who needed to undergo an operation to replace a failed artificial hip. According to the Times, Thomas Dougherty faced more than $400,000 in charges related to hospitalizations and nearly $30,000 in doctors’ bills after a replacement hip operation. His pelvis fractured shortly after the procedure, and he needed to abandon the replacement hip, which resulted in a serious infection.
