Specialist product liability law firm Leigh Day & Co, the lead solicitors in the DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing/ Replacement  litigation, is currently acting on behalf of over 250 claimants who have undergone early revision procedures as a result of being implanted with the ASR component, which was recalled in September 2010.

The claimants are seeking compensation for the pain, suffering and financial loss sustained as result of the early failure of their ASR implant, and protective proceedings were issued on 1st November 2010 on behalf of part of the group.

DePuy have confirmed that they intend to cover reasonable and customary costs of testing and treatment associated with the ASR Recall, including revision surgery. Broadspires,  DePuy’s loss adjusters in the UK, are processing the reimbursement of those costs and reasonable out of pocket expenses. Broadspires' contact details are 0190 8302 058.

Leigh Day has also been in 'without prejudice' discussions with DePuy’s representatives in the UK with a view to agreeing a mechanism for the swift and efficient resolution of individual claims for compensation so that claimants obtain their full entitlement as soon as possible. We are hopeful that we will be able to reach agreement on a claims process very soon.

If you or a relative has been affected by the ASR Recall and would like to discuss the possibility of making a claim for compensation or require further information please contact the Product Liability team on 020 7650 1311.
