A Message from personal injury lawyers O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath

You work hard to take care of your care recipient, but what if you could not get up to do everything you need to? One of my greatest fears as a caregiver was that my hip or knee would weaken and fail me at a time when I was helping my father during a transfer or to walk.

I have been having problems off and on with my hips for years, leaving me concerned that one day I might become a candidate for hip replacement surgery. That is not something I look forward to, particularly not with things such as the recent Depuy recall on the ASR XL Acetabular Hip System and the DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System by DePuy Orthopedics.

On August 26, 2010, DePuy Orthopedics issued a voluntary recall on the ASR XL Acetabular Hip System and the DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System used in hip replacement surgery. The products included in the voluntary recall affected roughly 1 in 8 hip replacement patients who had surgery in or after July 2003 and required a second surgery within five years of their initial hip replacement surgery.

The law offices of personal injury lawyers O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath, would like to invite you to contact them, information below, or to visit their website at the included link, and find out how they can assist you with your liability claim if you had hip surgery involving a DePuy product after July 2003.

Where to take the blog now

I do not want to end this blog just because I am no longer the caregiver for my parents, so I am working out what direction I will take it in. At the moment I am thinking to continue to focus on information that I see in the news that would be of interest to family caregivers, and to share my knowledge as a family caregiver with others that are starting into the most difficult and rewarding thing they will ever do.

I am open to any suggestions that others might have for me on what to do with the blog, and thank you to those who have put up with my roller coaster of ups and downs over the past years as I scattered back and forth over a wide range of efforts to write through insanity and stress.
