    A Los Angeles jury is deliberating in the first defective DePuy hip implant case on behalf of a 65-year-old former prison guard in Montana who alleged he suffered metal poisoning and other health problems from the company’s ASR XL hip implant he received in 2007. Johnson & Johnson, makers of the device and the defendant in the action, face thousands of lawsuits as “the world’s largest seller of health-care products failed patients before recalling 93,000 ASR hips in August, 2010,” Bloomberg News reported, quoting one of the plaintiff’s attorneys in the LA case. One of the tenets of this plaintiff, as well as many others who had the hip device implanted, is that Johnson & Johnson knew of the defects in the DePuy ASR XL long before telling patients, allowing many to receive the defective device without any warning of its risks. Clifford Law Offices has a number of patients who received the defective device and are suffering severe health problems including revision surgeries to remove the device.
