DePuy ASR Hip Replacement Lawsuits: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Upcoming Conference in New Jersey DePuy ASR Hip Recall Litigation
Date:4/28/2013

all, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) launched a safety review of metal-on-metal hip implants. In January, the agency proposed a new rule that would make all-metal hips ineligible for the agency’s 510(k) clearance process, which allowed devices like the ASR to come to market without first undergoing human clinical trials. The FDA also advised doctors to consider metal ion testing in those experiencing symptoms of hip implant failure.***

The majority of DePuy ASR hip replacement lawsuits filed since the recall are pending in a multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio, where Bernstein Liebhard LLP is actively filing claims. Court documents indicate that the first trial in that litigation will begin this June. (In re: DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. ASR Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation – MDL 2197).

In addition, hundreds of claims have also been filed in state courts throughout the nation. Last month, a Los Angeles Superior Court jury awarded more than $8 million to a plaintiff in the nation’s first trial of a DePuy ASR lawsuit (Kransky v. DePuy, BC456086, California Superior Court, Los Angeles County). However, a jury in Chicago found for Johnson & Johnson in a second trial that was decided earlier this month. (Strum v. DePuy, 2011-L-9352, Circuit Court of Cook County). According to a report from The New York Times, documents disclosed in the course of both proceedings indicated that Johnson & Johnson and DePuy knew that the ASR was defective years before the recall was announced in 2010, but did not disclose this information to the public or the medical community.**

Individuals who suffered metallosis, premature device failure or other complications allegedly related to the DePuy ASR hip recall may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
