Mark Harvey is a Partner in the claimant division. He has obtained compensation for many individual victims of common but defective consumer products as well as victims of accidents overseas and arising out of travel generally.

Johnson & Johnson subsidiary DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. is the manufacturer of metal on metal hip replacements, ASR hip replacement system and ASR hip resurfacing systems.

DePuy ASR hip replacement implants have been in clinical use in the UK since July 2003. However, following the discovery that the revision rate of these systems is higher than expected, DePuy have now issued a recall of the products. This includes the ASR hip replacement system and ASR hip resurfacing systems.

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.

The Hugh James harmful products team has many years' experience of successfully winning harmful product claims.
