First DePuy ASR Hip Lawsuits Settling

First DePuy ASR Hip Lawsuits Settling

Bloomberg:  Nevada Claims Settling for About $200,000 Apiece

August 21, 2012 – Early this morning, reports surfaced citing unnamed sources about Johnson & Johnson’s agreement to resolve three DePuy artificial hip lawsuits.  If confirmed, these will be the first known DePuy settlements to occur.

This news comes less than a week shy of the two-year anniversary of the voluntary worldwide recall of certain artificial hips manufactured by DePuy Orthopedics, a division of Johnson & Johnson.

Allegations of elevated chromium in patients’ blood, exceedingly high implant failure rates and intense pain and suffering are among the charges levied against the defendants.

For an excellent summary of the History of the DePuy ASR Case from the law firm that filed the first product liability lawsuit in the country against DePuy, we highly recommend following the posts from noted San Francisco personal injury law firm Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger.
