DePuy ASR Lawsuits
According to court documents, more than 11,000 product liability claims have been filed in courts around the country since the DePuy ASR recall was announced three years ago. Just over 7,800 of those lawsuits are pending in the Northern District of Ohio, where Bernstein Liebhard LLP is actively filing claims. Following the commencement of the bellwether trial in the federal proceeding, a bellwether trial of DePuy ASR lawsuit in a consolidated litigation pending in California Superior Court is scheduled to begin on October 1, 2013. (DePuy ASR HIP System Cases, No. CJC-10-004649; Calif. Super. Ct., San Francisco Cty.)

(In Re DePuy ASR Hip Implants Litigation, BER-L-3971-11)

Earlier this year, trials concluded in two other state claims involving the DePuy ASR recall. In March, a plaintiff was awarded more than $8 million after a Los Angeles Superior Court jury found that the hip implant was defectively designed. (Kransky v. DePuy, BC456086, California Superior Court, Los Angeles County) However, a jury in Chicago found for Johnson & Johnson in a second trial just one month later. (Strum v. DePuy, 2011-L-9352, Circuit Court of Cook County).

According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), the DePuy ASR recall was issued after data from a United Kingdom joint registry indicated that the 5 year revision rate associated with the metal-on-metal hip implants was approximately 13 percent. In February 2011, the FDA began a safety review of all-metal hips amid concerns that such devices could shed dangerous amounts of metal ions into the tissue surrounding the hip and the blood stream, leading to pain, swelling, metallosis, and premature device failure. In January the agency urged patients with such devices to undergo metal ion blood tests if they experienced any symptoms that would signify a failing hip implant. The FDA has also proposed a new rule which would subject such devices to greater regulatory oversight.*

Individuals who have suffered serious complications allegedly associated with a DePuy ASR hip may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
