DePuy ASR Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Upcoming Conference in New Jersey DePuy ASR Recall Litigation

New York, New York (PRWEB) January 13, 2014

A court conference has been scheduled to address the hundreds of DePuy ASR hip lawsuits ( currently pending in a multicounty litigation underway in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to documents filed in the proceeding, the Court will hold the year’s first Case Management Conference on January 29, 2014. (In Re DePuy ASR Hip Implants Litigation, BER-L-3971-11)

“Our Firm is representing numerous individuals who were allegedly harmed by devices included in the DePuy ASR recall who have filed claims in this proceeding, as well as in the multidistrict litigation underway in Indiana federal court. We are looking forward to additional progress in the new year, especially in light of the DePuy ASR settlement that was proposed this past November,” 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 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
The DePuy ASR settlement proposal was announced on November 19, 2013, in U.S District Court, Northern District of Indiana, where thousands of claims stemming from the 2010 ASR recall have been consolidated for pretrial proceedings. According to court documents, if it is finalized, the settlement will apply to DePuy ASR lawsuit plaintiffs who underwent revision surgery to replace their artificial hip due to a recall-related reason 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. Claimants who might wish to participate in the settlement program were required to register their claims by January 6, 2014. The Court has also designated April 1, 2014 as the final deadline for opting in or out of the DePuy ASR settlement. (In re: DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. ASR Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation – MDL 2197)

According to The New York Times, if the DePuy ASR settlement is finalized, it is expected to cost Johnson & Johnson and its DePuy Orthopaedics unit at least $2.5 billion. If the accord is accepted by 94% of eligible plaintiffs, it would resolve roughly 8,000 of the 12,000 claims currently pending against the companies in federal and state courts around the country. Individuals who are not eligible for the settlement program, or those who elect not to participate, will still be able to pursue individual DePuy ASR lawsuits.*

DePuy ASR hip recipients who suffered complications allegedly associated with this recalled hip implant may be entitled to compensation for their injury-related damages.
