DePuy ASR Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Impending Deadlines for Individuals Who May Want to Participate in DePuy ASR Settlement Program

New York, New York (PRWEB) January 02, 2014

DePuy ASR hip lawsuits ( filed in the wake of the 2010 recall for ASR metal-on-metal hip implants continue to move forward in courts around the country, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to court documents filed in the multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio, recipients of the recalled hip who may wish to participate in the DePuy ASR settlement program announced by the Court this past November will face some important deadlines over the coming year. Among other things, they must register their claim no later than January 6, 2014. The Court has also designated April 1, 2014 as the final deadline for opting in or out of the settlement program. ( In re: DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. ASR Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation – MDL 2197)

“As per the Court’s order, we are registering all potential ASR cases. Registration will not obligate anyone to participate, and all eligible claimants will have until April 1st to decide how they would like to proceed,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices, including hundreds of clients in DePuy ASR lawsuits. The Firm continues to offer free legal evaluations to individuals who allegedly experienced metallosis, chronic pain, disability, premature hip implant failure, and other serious complications allegedly related to devices included in the DePuy ASR recall.

DePuy ASR Settlement Program

The DePuy ASR settlement program was announced on November 19, 2013 in the Northern District of Indiana, where thousands of DePuy ASR lawsuits are currently pending. According to court documents, those eligible to participate include recipients of the recalled hip implants who underwent revision surgery to replace the device due to a reason related to the DePuy ASR recall prior to August 31, 2013. Eligible claimants would be entitled to a base award of $250,000. That award could be reduced, however, depending on certain other factors, including their prior medical history. Other circumstances could entitle plaintiffs to a supplemental award if they, for example, required multiple revision surgeries, or if they experience “certain extraordinary injuries” in the future.

According to a report from The New York Times, if the DePuy ASR settlement is accepted by 94% of eligible plaintiffs, it would resolve roughly 8,000 of the 12,000 claims currently pending against Johnson & Johnson and its DePuy Orthopaedics unit. The accord is expected to cost the companies at least $2.5 billion.* According to court documents, ASR recipients who are not eligible to participate in the settlement program may continue to pursue individual lawsuits, as may those who choose to opt out of the settlement program.

Individuals who were affected by the DePuy ASR recall may be eligible to recover for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and more.
