Tipperary Solicitors acting for largest group of DePuy ASR litigants in Ireland

While the DePuy hip Implant Recall is in essence a product liability issue, persons affected by it may also have issues of medical negligence to address. It is likely in certain cases that the manufacturer of the product will argue that the cause of failure of the implant is not an inherent design failure but a error on the part of the orthopaedic surgeon to correctly position the implant during the operation. 

Should such a situation arise it would then be necessary for us to consider this argument and seek expert opinion. If that opinion confirmed surgeon error as the cause of the defect, it may then become necessary to join the surgeon or in the case of operations conducted under the care of the Health Service Authority (HSE), join the HSE under what is called the Clinical Indemnity Scheme which handles all such claims against the HSE.
