New DePuy Metal Hip Implant Lawsuits Allegations Update: Resource4thePeople Reports Important Trial Scheduled in Federal Consolidated Cases
Date:8/12/2013

hip systems or more than 10,000 lawsuits that have been filed over allegations that the systems were defectively designed.

Bloomberg also reported that "metal-on-metal hip sales in the U.S. and Europe plunged from 20 percent of the market in 2007 to less than 2 percent last year as doctors questioned their safety and patients filed lawsuits citing flawed products."

In the first U.S. trial**** involving the DePuy metal systems allegations, a Los Angeles jury found on March 8, 2013 that DePuy and its parent company, Johnson & Johnson must pay a Montana man $8.3 in damages on a finding that the DePuy ASR system was defectively designed.

Jurors awarded damages to Loren Kransky, a 65-year-old former prison guard who claimed he suffered serious health problems after an ASR system failed and metal debris was spread through his body, according to the court file.

Kransky had an ASR hip implanted in 2007 and was forced to have it replaced in 2012 after suffering pain and infections from the metal infecting his blood and nearby tissues, according to the court file.

In their court filings, Kransky’s lawyers filed allegations that DePuy was negligent because their research staff did not use a variety of angulations in testing the ASR metal cup and only tested one of several sizes.

Then, a Chicago jury***** returned a verdict in favor of DePuy Orthopaedics and against a woman who claimed DePuy metal-on-metal hip implant systems were defectively designed and that the company failed to warn patients of serious side effects that could be caused by the devices.
