DePuy ASR Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Most Recent Developments in New Jersey DePuy ASR Recall Litigation

New York, New York (PRWEB) August 17, 2013

DePuy ASR hip lawsuits ( continue to move forward in a MultiCounty Litigation underway in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to an Order dated August 13th, Superior Court Judge Brian R. Martinotti has rejected DePuy Orthopaedics’ motion to split the consolidated trial of two bellwether cases in the proceeding. The first bellwether trial in the New Jersey DePuy ASR recall litigation is scheduled to begin on October 21, 2013. (In Re DePuy ASR Hip Implants Litigation, BER-L-3971-11)

“We continue to hear from individuals affected by the DePuy ASR recall who have allegedly suffered serious complications, some of which resulted in painful revision surgery. We look forward to the start of this bellwether trial in October, as well as the first trial in the federal multidistrict litigation next month,” 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 anyone who suffered serious complications associated with the DePuy ASR recall.

DePuy ASR Recall

According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), the DePuy ASR recall was announced in August 2010, due to the high failure rates associated with the metal-on-metal hip replacement devices. Court documents indicate that more than 650 DePuy ASR lawsuits are pending in the New Jersey litigation, all of which allege the metal-on-metal design of the ASR hip caused the device to shed dangerous amounts of metal debris. Plaintiffs claim this caused a number of serious complications, including pain, swelling, and metallosis, which sometimes resulted in revision surgery to replace the failing hip.

Bernstein Liebhard LLP is actively filing DePuy ASR lawsuits in a federal multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio, where more than 7,800 similar claims have been filed. The first bellwether trial in that litigation is scheduled to begin on September 9, 2013. (In re: DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. ASR Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation – MDL 2197)

Two trials involving DePuy ASR recall claims have already concluded in other states. In March, a plaintiff was awarded more than $8 million after a Los Angeles Superior Court jury found that the ASR 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)

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