Many people, regardless of their level of disability, are rejected when they apply for SSD benefits
Social Security Disability (SSD) was created to help those who are unable to work because of severe disability and earn a living. If you've been injured and are unable to continue doing your work because of a new disability, SSD provides a safety net.
Unfortunately, many people, regardless of their level of disability, are rejected when they apply for SSD benefits. In Indiana, nearly 70 percent of those who apply for SSD are denied. This means that those people who are disabled and unable to work may also be unable to get the medical care, treatment and adaptations that they need for their disability. If you have applied for SSD on your own and were rejected, don't give up. You have 60 days to appeal this decision and Hensley Legal Group can help you.
DePuy ASR Recalled! DePuy ASR™ Recalled! Recently, DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. (the orthopedic arm of Johnson & Johnson) issued a global recall of two of its hip implant devices--the ASR™XL Acetabular System and the ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System. This recall of DePuy Hip Replacements follows a New York Times article on March 10, 2010, which revealed that DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. had halted sales and issued an urgent safety notice for its DePuy ASR™ Hip device systems. Recently, the FDA issued a warning letter to DePuy for selling the DePuy ASR™ Hip Replacement and other joint products without the agency’s approval. DePuy sold around 93,000 of the DePuy Hip Replacement units.
Why is DePuy ASR™ recalled? DePuy has announced that data received by the company shows that more people than expected who received the DePuy ASR™ Hip Replacement System experienced pain and other symptoms that led to a second hip replacement surgery. Information showed that five years after the DePuy ASR™ Hip Replacement implantation, approximately 12% of patients, or 1 in 8, who had received the DePuy ASR™ resurfacing device, and 13% of patients, or 1 in 8, who had received the DePuy ASR™ total hip replacement needed a second surgery. The recall means that monitoring and testing of DePuy ASR™ Hip Replacement may be necessary of individuals who have been implanted with either of the DePuy ASR Hip Systems.
