DePuy ASR Hip Replacement Lawsuit Lawyers at Wright & Schulte LLC Report Latest Developments in DePuy ASR Hip Implant Recall Lawsuits
Date:3/18/2013

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) March 18, 2013

The DePuy ASR hip replacement recall lawsuit attorneys of Wright & Schulte LLC, an experienced medical device injury law firm, are pleased to report that the litigation surrounding the DePuy ASR hip implant recall is moving forward. While a DePuy ASR hip trial in Maryland that would have been the nation’s first was cancelled in January after the plaintiff chose to re-file in federal court, a DePuy ASR hip trial in California Los Angeles Superior Court recently ended with an $8.3 million damage award for the Plaintiff. Shortly after that trial concluded, a DePuy ASR trial in Illinois state court got underway, with testimony to continue this week. (Jackson v. DePuy Orthopaedics Inc., CAL 10- 32147, Circuit Court, Prince George’s County, Maryland; Kransky v. DePuy, BC456086, California Superior Court, Los Angeles County; and Strum v. DePuy, 2011-L-9352, Circuit Court of Cook County)

Wright & Schulte LLC is offering free case evaluations to individuals who suffered serious Depuy ASR hip replacement symptoms and complications, including:

  •     Extreme pain (even when not moving)
  •     Swelling and inflammation

  •     Clicking or squeaking from the hip
  •     Dislocation
  •     Bone deterioration
  •     Hip replacement failure

DePuy ASR Settlement News
Court records indicate that nearly 11,000 DePuy ASR hip replacement recall lawsuits have been filed since the metal-on-metal hip implants were withdrawn from the market in August 2010. Most claims are pending in a multidistrict litigation in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio (MDL 297). A series of bellwether trials are scheduled to begin in that litigation this spring.    According to Wright & Schulte, DePuy ASR trials have been eagerly anticipated by plaintiffs and attorneys alike, as the outcomes will help predict how juries might rule in similar lawsuits.

Last year, three plaintiffs in a consolidated Nevada case did reach DePuy ASR settlements with Johnson & Johnson for roughly $200,000 each. [Rundle v. DePuy Orthopaedics Inc., A-11-636272, Clark County District Court] Late last year, Bloomberg.com also reported that the company offered to resolve all DePuy ASR hip replacement lawsuits for an average of $200,000 per case, but the DePuy ASR settlement offer was rejected as being too low. The news of the first verdict has led to new speculation that Johnson & Johnson could seek again to negotiate a global DePuy ASR hip settlement.

DePuy ASR Hip Recall and the FDA
The DePuy ASR hip recall resulted in additional scrutiny on the part of the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), which launched a safety review of the devices in 2011. The DePuy ASR and other metal-on-metal hips were brought to market without human testing, under the FDA’s 510(k) approval process. In January 2013, the FDA proposed reclassifying metal hips, which would make the devices ineligible for 510(k) approvals. The agency also said that patients fitted with metal-on-metal hips should have metal ion testing and additional screening if they suffered any signs that could indicate their hip might be failing.
