DePuy ASR Hip Implant Lawyers at Wright & Schulte LLC Pleased with Judge’s Decision to Uphold $8.3 Million Award in California DePuy ASR Hip Lawsuit Trial
Date:6/2/2013

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) June 02, 2013

The DePuy ASR hip replacement lawsuit lawyers of Wright & Schulte LLC, an experienced defective medical device law firm, are extremely pleased that a Los Angeles Superior Court judge has chosen to uphold the $8.3 million jury award granted to the Plaintiff in the nation’s first DePuy ASR hip recall trial. According to a May 27th report from MassDevice.com, the judge rejected two motions Johnson & Johnson filed in an attempt to have the verdict overturned, rejecting the company’s assertions that the Plaintiff had not presented enough evidence to prove the DePuy ASR hip replacements were defectively designed.

Wright & Schulte LLC continues to offer free case evaluations to DePuy ASR hip replacement recipients who allegedly suffered serious complications including:

  •     Metallosis
  •     Loosening of the implant
  •     Pain
  •     Swelling
  •     High levels of chromium and cobalt ions in their blood
  •     Premature failure resulting in revision surgery

Accoding to a May 16th Bloomberg report, Court filings show that more than 10,000 DePuy ASR hip lawsuits have been filed since the all-metal hip implants were recalled in August 2010 because of an unacceptably high failure rate. The Plaintiff in the California trail was ultimately awarded $338,000 in medical costs and $8 million for pain and suffering too. However, jurors declined to award punitive damages in the case. According to a January 22nd report from The New York Times, evidence was presented during the trial that raised serious questions about Johnson & Johnson’s handling of the DePuy ASR hip implant, including a 2011 company analysis that found patients implanted with the metal-on-metal replacement showed a hip replacement failure rate of 40 percent of their implant within five years that was never made public. According to Wright & Schulte, the Los Angeles case was closely watched, as it could predict how other juries will rule in similar DePuy ASR hip recall lawsuits.

According to court documents, the majority of lawsuits filed since the DePuy ASR hip recall are pending in a federal litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio, where the first trial is scheduled to begin in September. Earlier this month, attorneys for Johnson & Johnson filed a motion in that litigation seeking to exclude evidence of the DePuy ASR recalls, as well as other product recalls, from its bellwether trials. Johnson & Johnson asserts that such evidence is not relevant to plaintiffs’ claims. (In re: DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. ASR Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation – MDL 2197)
