DePuy ASR Hip Implant Recall Lawsuit
Under Missouri law, the rules are very restrictive when a plaintiff seeks compensation after being injured by a defective medical device. With a defective medical device, such as a hip implant with a design defect, a plaintiff can only make a recovery by proving one of the following:
(a) The defendant failed to warn of the dangers presented the product;
(b) The defendant negligently designed the product;
(c) The defendant negligently failed to warn of the dangers of the product; or
(d) The defendant negligently failed to recall or retrofit the product.
Because negligence is the failure to use reasonable care, this places a serious burden on the plaintiff-and his or her attorneys. It will be the job of the plaintiff’s attorney to research and evaluate the defendant’s manufacturing process, to see if the design itself was negligent.
