AdobeStock_69699887Johnson & Johnson has lost a third case regarding its defective, dangerous hip implants and have been ordered to pay out over one billion dollars!  This is a victory for the consumer patient against a giant manufacturing metal on metal hip implants that have been known to cause terrible health consequences over and over.  Companies, such as Johnson & Johnson, DePuy, and Smith & Nephew have manufactured these metal on metal joint implant medical devices and failed to inform the public time and time again about their dangers for metallic blood poisoning and carcinogens being let loose in the body of patients once the metal parts rub against each other.  The plaintiffs involved in this lawsuit experienced tissue death, bone erosion, and other injuries from the Johnson & Johnson hip implants, so it is justice to see the company be held accountable after its product caused life changing problems for innocent and unaware patients.   Of course the manufacturing giant has already promised appeals, but they face over eight thousand lawsuits over their hip implants.    

If you or a loved one has been injured by a recalled medical device product, such as the Johnson & Johnson, DePuy, or Smith & Nephew metal on metal joint implants, consult your medical provider and please contact  Inserra Kelley Sewell, Personal Injury Attorneys, to discuss your possible claim and entitlement to compensation for your damages.

    My attorney filed a case for me and they closed it. Can I still file a claim now? He said that because I hadn't had a revision I didn't qualify to be in the lawsuit.
