DePuy’s recall includes funding the costs of investigation and treatment and patient’s expenses. However, in conjunction with a handful of other law firms across Britain, Hugh James has been negotiating for the payment of compensation for all of the effects of having these implants treatments.
This compensation may include the payment of loss of earnings or nursing care. In addition, the claim will include an independent review of the long term effects of the implant and its revision.
Hugh James is currently representing patients who have been part of this recall and have either had their DePuy implants replaced or are being investigated to determine if they will need to.
