DePuy ASR Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Issuance of New Order in Federal DePuy ASR Hip Recall Litigation

New York, New York (PRWEB) December 06, 2013

Thousand of DePuy ASR hip lawsuits ( filed on behalf of individuals who allegedly suffered metallosis, pseudotumors, premature device failure and other complications caused by the recalled devices are continuing to move forward in a multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to an Order filed on December 5, 2013, the Court has amended an earlier Case Management Order pertaining to the Defendants’ Master Answer. Among other things, the new Order Stipulates that the Master Answer is now deemed filed and immediately applicable and responsive to all DePuy ASR lawsuits claims currently pending in the litigation. (In re: DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. ASR Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation – MDL 2197)

“Our Firm is representing hundreds of DePuy ASR lawsuit clients in this litigation. We are currently working to assist our clients who may be eligible for the recently announced DePuy ASR settlement to determine their best course of action,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm continues to offer free legal evaluations to individuals who may have been harmed by devices included in the DePuy ASR recall.

DePuy ASR Settlement
The issuance of this new Order follows the November 19th announcement in the Northern District of Ohio of a proposed agreement to settle many of the DePuy ASR lawsuits now pending in courts around the country. According to court documents, if the settlement is accepted by at least 94% of eligible plaintiffs, those 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. Those eligible for the proposed DePuy ASR settlement include recipients of the recalled hip who had an ASR hip replaced for a reason related to the recall no later than August 31, 2013.

According to The New York Times, if the DePuy ASR settlement is finalized, it could resolve roughly 8,000 of the 12,000 claims filed against Johnson & Johnson and DePuy Orthopaedics since the hip recall was announced in 2010. Those who are not eligible for compensation under its terms may still pursue DePuy ASR lawsuits against the company.*

Recipients of ASR hips who suffered serious complications that may have been caused by the device are urged to contact Bernstein Liebhard LLP today to learn more about the proposed settlement, or to discuss their legal options for filing their own DePuy ASR lawsuit.
