Defective medical products can cause life-changing injuries and the team at Gregory Abrams Davidson have a wealth of experience in assisting clients seek compensation against the manufacturers of these products.

We have established ourselves as one of the leading experts in defective medical product claims.

Some examples are our current work are as follows:

DePuy ASR

In August 2010, DePuy Orthopaedics Inc., a division of Johnson & Johnson, announced a worldwide recall of two hip replacement systems:

  1. ASR XL Acetabular System
  2. DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System.

The recall was prompted by the fact that data revealed that in the first five years following surgery, approximately 12% of patients (1 in 8) who had the ASR resurfacing device and 13% of patients (1 in 8) who had received the ASR total hip replacement needed to have revision surgery. These patients therefore needed the hip implant to be replaced.

We are currently acting for approximately 150 clients who have been affected by the DePuy ASR recall.

We are 1 of 6 lead Solicitors across the UK that have formed a group to work together on ensuring that patients affected by this recall receive the compensation they deserve.

Very strict time limits apply to these claims so if you or somebody you know is suffering as a result of the  DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System or a DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System, please do not hesitate to contact a member of our dedicated team for free advice on 0151 733 33539 or 0208 209 0166. Alternatively, you can email us at info@gadllp.co.uk.

DePuy Pinnacle

The DePuy Pinnacle hip implant is still on sale and has not been subject to a manufacturer recall.

However, evidence suggests that like the DePuy ASR, the Depuy Pinnacle has a higher than normal revision rate.

On the 31st July 2014 a Group Litigation Order (GLO) in relation to claims in respect of the DePuy Pinnacle was approved by the President of the Queens Bench Division at the High Courts of Justice in London.

Gregory Abrams Davidson is one of just five specialist solicitors in the country to be included on a steering committee to lead litigation against DePuy in respect of the Pinnacle implant.

Very strict time limits apply to these claims so if you or somebody you know is suffering as a result of the  DePuy Pinnacle implant, please do not hesitate to contact a member of our dedicated team for free advice on 0151 733 33539 or 0208 209 0166. Alternatively, you can email us at info@gadllp.co.uk.
