DePuy ASR Lawsuit Update: Rottenstein Law Group LLP Responds to J&J $3 Billion Settlement Report
Date:8/21/2013

(PRWEB) August 21, 2013

Johnson & Johnson is reportedly considering a more than $3 billion DePuy ASR hip implant settlement, according to Bloomberg.* The Rottenstein Law Group LLP, a metal-on-metal hip implant firm, comments on the news and notes that DePuy hip settlements could amount to more than $300,000 per plaintiff.

There are more than 8,000 DePuy ASR lawsuits pending in federal court alone, according to Bloomberg. Johnson & Johnson said in the story it wants to resolve all federal and state cases by early next year. In 2010 Johnson & Johnson recalled 93,000 metal-on-metal hip implants worldwide, about 37,000 of those in the United States, the story said. The ASR had a failure rate of 12 percent after five years.

“There are a handful of ASR bellwether trials coming up this fall and winter,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group LLP. “It will be interesting to see how they affect this proposed settlement. Ultimately, though, this is a good sign for those looking to file DePuy lawsuits. There is the potential to receive certain compensation for harms suffered as a result of the alleged side effects of the device.”

The ASR, like some other metal-on-metal hip implants, has been under the lens of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, chiefly because of one dangerous, alleged adverse side effect called “metal poisoning,” or “metallosis.” According to the FDA, cobalt and chromium particles could enter into the implantee’s bloodstream when the device’s metal parts touch each other. This could lead to potentially severe health problems, the FDA said, such as neurological impairment.**

The Rottenstein Law Group LLP represents clients in ASR hip lawsuits. The firm encourages those who believe they have suffered from the ASR’s alleged side effects to visit the firm’s FAQ page to learn more about lawsuits and settlements.
