DePuy ASR Lawsuit Settlement News: Johnson & Johnson Deal Still Leaves Opportunity to File Lawsuits, Notes Rottenstein Law Group LLP
Date:11/21/2013

(PRWEB) November 21, 2013

Following news this week that Johnson & Johnson has agreed to pay out at least $2.5 billion in DePuy ASR hip settlements to those who underwent revision surgery to replace their metal-on-metal hip implants, the Rottenstein Law Group LLP notes that those who don’t fall under that category are still able to file an ASR lawsuit. RLG maintains a DePuy ASR informational website at http://www.depuyhiprecallnewscenter.com.

There are about 12,000 ASR hip lawsuits pending in state and federal court, about 8,000 of which were brought by plaintiffs who underwent revision surgery, according to a Nov. 19 New York Times report.* The remaining approximately 4,000 lawsuits involve plaintiffs who allegedly suffered from metal poisoning and other non-revision-related adverse side effects. Those individuals—and even those who have had revision surgery—are still eligible to pursue options outside of settlement, according to a Nov. 20 Reuters story.**

“A trial is still a possibility for those who either don’t choose to be part of the mass settlement or who are not eligible,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group LLP. “A settlement has its benefits, of course, but so do other options. The best thing an ASR hip implant patient can do is consult an attorney without any further delay to discuss all the options available to them.”

Leadership for the plaintiffs indicated that there is no cap on compensation per claimant in the settlement; only that compensation is ultimately contingent on the degree of medical complications, according Reuters. To qualify, ASR hip implant recipients would have to have undergone revision surgery by Aug. 31, 2013.
