If you were injured by the DePuy ASR or Pinnacle hip implants, contact our attorneys for information about a DePuy hip implant class action. The problem is that the parts of these metal-on-metal hip replacements can grind together and shed toxic particles of metal into a patient’s hip joint.

DePuy Hip Implant Class Action Lawsuit Information
DePuy Orthopedics has been hit with over 10,000 lawsuits involving the ASR, a metal-on-metal hip replacement that was pulled off the market in 2010. Recent studies have linked the ASR to a 40% five-year failure-rate. In November 2013, DePuy agreed to pay $2.5 billion plus medical costs to settle thousands of pending cases.
These lawsuits are not part of a DePuy hip implant class action — they are individual lawsuits that have been centralized in federal court. Over 8,600 lawsuits involve the DePuy ASR. Over 5,000 additional lawsuits involve the DePuy Pinnacle.
What is the problem?
The Clark Firm, LLP is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but our Defective Medical Device Litigation Group is not filing a DePuy hip implant class action. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits on behalf of people who were severely injured.

- Chronic pain
- Inflammation and swelling
- Bone loss
- Systemic reactions in other areas of the body
- Decreased mobility or flexibility

About Class Actions
Class actions are a useful way to resolve certain types of legal disputes, such as when thousands of people demand a refund after buying a defective product. However, for individual plaintiffs with severe injuries, class actions can have disadvantages. Members are sometimes forced into accepting high attorneys’ fees or a “low-ball” settlement offer.
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a DePuy Hip Implant Class Action
The Clark Firm, LLP specializes in helping victims of defective medical devices seek financial compensation and justice for their injuries. We understand that a defective hip replacement can cause debilitating pain, ongoing medical expenses, time off work, emotional distress, and more.
Our lawyers file individual lawsuits because we believe this is the best way we can help each of our clients maximize their financial recovery. We always review new cases for free, and we typically work on contingency-fee. Contact us today for more information.
