DePuy Hip Replacement Lawsuit News: Lawyers at Wright & Schulte LLC Await Start of First Federal Bellwether Trial in DePuy ASR Hip Recall Litigation

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) September 08, 2013

The DePuy hip replacement lawsuit lawyers at Wright & Schulte LLC, an experienced defective medical device law firm, are looking forward to the start of the first bellwether trial in the federal multidistrict litigation formed for personal injury lawsuits filed in the wake of the 2010 DePuy ASR hip replacement recall. Court documents indicate that the DePuy hip replacement lawsuit, which will go to trial on September 9, 2013, in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio, is one of more than 7,800 DePuy hip replacement lawsuits currently pending in that jurisdiction. According to Wright & Schulte LLC, its outcome is likely to provide clues as to how juries hearing similar DePuy ASR recall lawsuits might rule in those claims. (McCracken v. DePuy, 11-dp-20485, U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio (Toledo))

The DePuy ASR hip replacement was recalled in August 2010 after data revealed the metal-on-metal hip implants were failing in 12-13% of patients within just five years. Court records indicate that more than 11,500 DePuy ASR hip replacement lawsuits have been filed by plaintiffs around the country since the devices were pulled from the market. Wright & Schulte LLC is offering free case evaluations to DePuy ASR hip replacement recipients who suffered serious complications including:

  •     Metallosis
  •     Loosening of the implant
  •     Pain
  •     Swelling
  •     High levels of chromium and cobalt ions in their blood
  •     Premature failure resulting in revision surgery

According to court records, the DePuy ASR hip implant lawsuit set to go to trial on September 9th was filed on behalf of a Rochester, New York, woman who underwent two hip revision surgeries, allegedly due to the defective design of the ASR hip. While it will be the first DePuy ASR hip replacement lawsuit to head to trial in the federal litigation, two others have already gone before a jury in state courts. One resulted in a verdict in favor of the plaintiff, and an $8.3 million judgment against DePuy Orthopaedics. (Kransky v. DePuy, BC456086, California Superior Court, Los Angeles County) However, a second case tried in Illinois was decided in favor of the medical device manufacturer. (Strum v. DePuy, 2011-L-9352, Circuit Court of Cook County)

According to Bloomberg News, a total of seven DePuy ASR hip recall lawsuits are scheduled to head to trial in the next year. In addition to the case set to get underway next week, trials are scheduled to begin in New Jersey and California state courts in October. A Florida case will go before a jury in November, while a state jury in Chicago is slated to take up a DePuy ASR lawsuit in December. In January, additional trials involving DePuy ASR hip recall claims will begin in New Jersey and California.

Bloomberg News also reported last month that DePuy has discussed paying more than $3 billion to settle the thousands of DePuy ASR hip replacement lawsuits filed against the company. The outcome of the seven trials scheduled to begin between September and January could have a significant impact on settlement negotiations, Bloomberg said.
