You caught us red – hipped

There are really only 2 reasons a company ever does anything.  The first, and most pervasive reason, is to make money.  The second is when it forced, kicking and screaming, to take responsibility through the justice system for its own products or conduct.

The latter was the case this week when Johnson & Johnson agreed to pay $2.5 billion to settle claims related to its defective metal-on-metal hip implants. The company had known for some time that their devices would fail, but forgot to mention it to anyone.  Oops.

It is not too late to make a claim if you had a hip implant made by Johnson & Johnson or DePuy.
