DePuy ASR Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Release of Latest Case Management Order in New Jersey DePuy ASR Recall Litigation
Date:8/26/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) August 26, 2013

Hundreds of DePuy ASR hip lawsuits (http://www.depuy-asr-hip-recall.com/) that are part of a consolidated docket in New Jersey Superior Court, Bergen County, continue to move forward, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. On August 21, 2013, the Court issued a Case Management Order that addressed a number of issues, including the progress of discovery and preparations for the DePuy ASR recall litigation’s first bellwether trial, which is scheduled to begin on October 21, 2013. Court records indicate that more than 650 DePuy ASR lawsuits are currently pending in the New Jersey proceeding. (In Re DePuy ASR Hip Implants Litigation, BER-L-3971-11)

"Even though the DePuy ASR recall occurred three years ago, our firm hears from recipients of this device on a regular basis who suffered painful complications, allegedly due to the metal debris shed from its metal-on-metal components,” 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 after data revealed that 13% of patients who received the metal-on-metal hip implants needed to have a second surgery to replace the device. Since then, court documents indicate that some 11,500 DePuy ASR lawsuits have been filed in courts around the country, all of which allege metal debris shed from the hip replacements can build to dangerous levels in the body, resulting in metallosis, premature device failure and other serious complications that may necessitate revision surgery.

In addition to the claims pending in the New Jersey proceeding, more than 7,800 DePuy ASR lawsuits involving similar allegations have been filed in a federal multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio. Bernstein Liebhard LLP is actively filing claims in this litigation. Its first trial is expected to begin on September 9, 2013. (In re: DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. ASR Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation – MDL 2197)

On the state court level, two DePuy ASR recall claims have already gone to trial. 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)

Hip replacement recipients 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.
