An interesting lawsuit filed today on behalf of 4 patients who all had their failed ASR hip implants removed in a 2nd surgery. The unique angle to this story is who they’re NOT suing. Here’s a quote:
“We don’t believe in suing the doctors and hospitals because they did nothing wrong – this is a problem with the device,” stated attorney Altom Maglio of the DePuy ASR Hip Recall Law Firm Alliance. The Alliance has taken a strong stance that it will not represent patients in suing physicians or hospitals, but instead only prosecute suits against DePuy and its distributors.
