Compensation Justified in DePuy ASR $8.35 Million Verdict
Date:3/21/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) March 21, 2013

Chaffin Luhana LLP, a national plaintiffs-only law firm with offices in New York and the greater Pittsburgh area, today commented on the $8.35 million verdict in the first DePuy ASR hip lawsuit to go to trial, (Kransky (Ellis) v. DePuy, et al., No. BC456086 (Los Angeles Super. Ct.) stating that the award was justified and that they were pleased that plaintiff Loren Kransky received the compensation he deserved.

“It was clear to us from the court documents that DePuy Orthopaedics should have done much more than they did to protect public safety,” said Eric Chaffin, co-founder of the firm.

Montana resident Loren “Bill” Kransky filed his DePuy ASR lawsuit in 2010. In his complaint, he stated that he had been implanted with the hip device in 2007, but later experienced constant pain, difficulty walking, and high levels of cobalt and chromium in his bloodstream. He eventually had to go through risky revision surgery, which according to Bloomberg, he dreaded.

“I came to believe that I was going to have to do it because I was told that something in my body was poisoning me,” Kransky testified. “I was told it could be the hip.”

The first of over 10,000 DePuy ASR lawsuits to go to trial, the Kransky case may provide clues as to how juries may react to future cases. Though DePuy has stated that it will appeal the decision, noting that jurors weren’t allowed to hear the FDA’s review and clearance of the device.

According to HarrisMartin, the jurors found for Kransky on damages for medical costs and on invisible injuries and emotional suffering and distress, awarding $338,236 in economic and $8
