DePuy ASR Hip Implant Failures Attorneys


When you call to talk to your lawyer at Paoli & Geerhart, you will speak to a partner. And the partners will prosecute your case from beginning to end.

DePuy ASR hip prosthesis

We are helping a victim of the defective  DePuy ASR hip prosthesis, a San Francisco Bay Area woman who has suffered for three years since her hip transplant, and who just recently was told the prosthesis was recalled because of “excessive failure rates,” and that she now has to have hip surgery, again, to replace it.

Even if you do not reside in the San Francisco Bay Area or in California, we believe San Francisco Superior Courtis the appropriate, and most attractive* court to file a lawsuit because of the California defendants including Dr. Thomas Parker Vail, M.D., of San Francisco, and Dr. Thomas Schmalzried, M.D., of Los Angeles, both of whom are designers and developers of the ASR system.

While many law firms, big and small are scrambling to find victims to represent, we will conduct ourselves in this litigation, as in all cases we handle, with the same personal and professional representation with one goal: get the most compensation we can for our deserving clients.

If you would like more information about the hip implant recall, you can go online to the DePuy website,, and view the webcasts they have published for doctors (the most informative), and you may call Tom Paoli anytime.

* “Attractive” because California product liability law is very pro-consumer and because San Francisco juries are historically very sympathetic to victims of defective products – some of the largest product liability judgments in the country have been awarded by San Francisco juries.

Please call us at (415) 498-2101 or write to us using the form to the right if you would like to schedule a free, no obligation consultation with one of our attorneys.
