Persons in the United States who have been forced to undergo revision surgery due to a defective DePuy knee may be entitled to compensation through filing a DePuy knee lawsuit. If you or a member of your family had a DePuy knee implanted and then suffered from pain, instability, or bone damage related to a product defect, you may have grounds to file a DePuy knee lawsuit against the subsidiary of pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson.
DePuy knee replacement systems have been found to fail prematurely, sometimes just months after the device was implanted. This has led to patients filing DePuy knee defects lawsuits to recover damages.

Filing a DePuy knee lawsuit enables consumers to hold the multinational medical device maker accountable for the safety of its products and recover compensation for medical expenses, pain, suffering, and loss resulting from these defective products.
DePuy, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, is a global leader in the development and production of joint replacement parts. For the past two decades, DePuy systems have been fraught with product recalls, most notably its extensive hip device recall; the company paid $2.5 billion to resolve more than 8,000 DePuy lawsuits for defective devices. While $2.5 billion seems a large sum, it should be noted that Johnson & Johnson brought in $71.9 billion in annual sales during 2016. Some critics say large conglomerates such as this view litigation is a cost of doing business, only warning consumers of the risk when forced to do so.
