THE MULLIGAN LAW FIRM IS CURRENTLY EVALUATING DEPUY ASR AND ASRXL HIP IMPLANT POTENTIAL CLAIMS

The ASR hip cup is a metal-on-metal ball and socket, large diameter hip resurfacing device.

DePuy, the company that manufactures the ASR hip cup (pronounced dee-pew), was acquired by Johnson & Johnson in 1998.

The cause of the DePuy ASR / ASRXL Cup hip implant problem / failure issue is under investigation.

Metal debris early in the placement of this implant may cause inflammation, leading to damaged muscles and soft tissue.

The result?  An expensive and painful surgery intended to last at least a decade often requires revision within two to three years.

If you or a loved one has been adversely affected / injured after surgical implantation of a DePuy Acetabular Cup, please contact us immediately for a free consultation.
