DePuy Settlement 8.3 Million, DePuy Lawyers Filing Immediate Lawsuits

Damages of 8.3 million have been  awarded in a J&J’s DePuy hip implant case. DePuy Helpline, DePuy Hip Repalcement lawyers are filing immediate lawsuits.

By GREG RISLING, Associated Press

Updated 1:56 am, Sunday, March 10, 2013

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A jury Friday awarded $8.3 million to a former prison guard who accused Johnson & Johnson’s DePuy Orthopaedics subsidiary of knowingly marketing a faulty hip implant that was later recalled.

Jurors found that the ASR XL implant was defectively designed and caused metal poisoning and other health problems suffered by Loren Kransky after he underwent surgery in 2007.

However, the panel rejected the 65-year-old’s claim that DePuy failed to adequately warn of the risks associated with the implant, and it didn’t find the company acted with malice, prohibiting Kransky from collecting any punitive damages.

The fraud and negligence suit is the first of nearly 11,000 similar cases involving an all-metal ball-and-socket hip joint that was pulled from the market two years ago to reach trial in the United States. Others like Kransky claim the implants have left them with crippling injuries or in need of other replacement surgeries.

Johnson & Johnson has set aside about $1 billion to cover costs of the recall and lawsuits.

Plaintiff’s attorney Doug Saeltzer said the verdict bodes well for the other cases.

“The message is that these cases are valid, that the injuries are real and severe, and Johnson & Johnson and DePuy have to pay significant money for their mistakes,” Saeltzer said.

Loire Gawreluk, a DePuy spokeswoman, said the Warsaw, Ind., company plans to appeal the verdict.

“We believe ASR XL was properly designed, and that DePuy’s actions concerning the product were appropriate and responsible,” she said.

During the trial, Kransky’s lawyers told jurors that black pieces of metal flaked off the implant and caused a type of poisoning that could have killed him if the material had not been removed.

 

Brian Panish, one of Kransky’s attorneys, said during closing arguments that the company “knew this hip was defective long before Mr. Kransky got it,” the Los Angeles Times reported.

“They wanted to play Russian roulette with patients. This defendant didn’t care about patient safety,” Panish said.

Defense attorneys denied Kransky’s claims and argued he had a host of pre-existing health ailments and the hip implant didn’t make him worse.

The hip joint was sold for eight years to more than 90,000 people worldwide. New Brunswick, N.J.-based Johnson & Johnson stopped making the product in 2009 and recalled it the next year.

The artificial part is meant to replace deteriorated joints causing severe pain and limiting mobility, and is generally expected to last 10 to 20 years. With the DePuy hip implant, one in eight patients needed theirs replaced within five years.

Attorneys representing the patients claim J&J knew about the problems in 2008. The company has denied those allegations.

Johnson & Johnson, the world’s biggest provider of health care products, has issued more than 30 product recalls since 2009. Most have involved nonprescription medicines such as adult and children’s Tylenol and Motrin, but other recalls were for prescription drugs for conditions such as epilepsy or for contact lenses.

Johnson & Johnson shares rose 44 cents to $78.19 Friday.  No harm done to J & J apparently. Our DePuy lawyers are accepting cases for immediate filing in some states. Call to find out if your state has passed the statute of limitations.

DePuy Hip Replacement Helpline has launched a DePuy Pinnacle Helpline to locate all people with a faulty DePuy Pinnacle. You must file your DePuy Pinnacle lawsuit right away.

Recipients of the various metal on metal hip implants are suffering nationwide.

“I used to ski, hike and swim. Tennis was my favorite sport and I miss it so much. I can’t do any of that anymore. All I can do now is watch videos on the computer or watch TV. As you can imagine, I gained weight (I just went on a diet) since I had my hip replaced. I can’t lose weight by exercising, and because I can’t exercise, my whole body aches. I guess I will get revision surgery at the last minute, if they can still do it. The doctor told my mother that my hip might not even be able to get fixed again, so that has made me even more hesitant.”

History Of the Failed DePuy

2009

In August, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns DePuy about the safety of an artificial hip device sold abroad. DePuy’s research and clinical data are inadequate, so it can’t sell the product in the United States. Meanwhile, DePuy continues to market the product outside America.

2010

DePuy begins phasing out two models of its all-metal implants that are sold in the United States. The company cites falling sales. (According to a 2012 New York Times report, DePuy actually started planning the phase-out shortly after receiving the FDA warning.) Reports of complications and high rates of early device failure have already surfaced. DePuy defends its devices by blaming failures on surgeon errors.

2010

DePuy finally recalls its Articular Surface Replacement (ASR) Acetabular Hip System and ASR Hip Resurfacing System. It cites “higher than expected revision rates” for the all-metal devices.

2011

The FDA warns DePuy to stop selling certain products, including artificial joint systems, without proper approval. It also cites ineffective quality control procedures.

2012

 Biomet Magnum Hip Lawyers Appointed to Leadership Roles in MDL

Posted: 17 Dec 2012 08:17 AM PST

More than two dozen lawyers have been appointed to serve in various leadership positions in the federal multidistrict litigation (MDL) established for all Biomet M2A Magnum hip lawsuits filed in the federal court system.

These attorneys will take various actions throughout the litigation that will benefit all plaintiffs who filed a product liability lawsuit after experiencing problems with the Biomet metal-on-metal hip replacement system.

On October 2, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) ordered that all product liability lawsuits filed against Biomet in federal courts throughout the country that involve the M2A Magnum metal hip implant will be centralized for pretrial proceedings before U.S. District Judge Robert L. Miller, Jr. in the Northern District of Indiana.

Centralizing the litigation is designed to reduce duplicative discovery in dozens of cases, avoiding conflicting pretrial rulings from different judges and to serve the convenience of the parties, witnesses and Courts.

In an order (PDF) issued on December 5, Judge Miller established the organizational structure of the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee (PSC) in the Biomet MDL, appointing 22 different attorneys to serve in various roles throughout the consolidated proceedings.

The Biomet Magnum hip lawyers selected for the PSC will conduct pretrial discovery that applies to multiple cases, examine witnesses and introduce evidence on behalf of all plaintiffs at hearings and perform other tasks during pretrial proceedings that may apply to all cases in the MDL.

Judge Miller appointed Thomas R. Anapol and W. Mark Lanier to serve as Co-Lead Counsel, with Robert T. Dassow and Frederick R. Hovde appointed to serve as Liason Counsel. In addition, another six lawyers were designated to serve on the Executive Committee of the PSC.

Biotmet is another to the long list of faulty hip replacements which includes Stryker Rejuvinate, DePuy hip replacement.and Zimmer.Stryker hip replacement and ABG II modular-neck hip stems; DePuy, Inc., Smith and Nephew, plc. Biomet Inc., and Zimmer Holdings, Inc

 

 

Stryker Lawsuit Updates, Stryker Lawyers Propose Consolidation

Current news and updates regarding the Stryker Hip Replacement

Consolidation Of Lawsuits Against Stryker Are In the Works
The Logic Behind The Consolidation

Lawsuits have been filed against Stryker Orthopaedics over its defective hip implants.  Cases are under consideration for consolidation New Jersey.The  The proposal is to move for an MDL or consolidation in Bergen County Superior Court in Hackensack, N.J., Honorable Brian Martinotti, who is the judge presiding over that court, has experience overseeing Depuy ASR hip implant lawsuits.

At issue are Stryker’s Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck hip stems, which were marketed as a way for orthopaedic surgeons to give patients a better fit with their hip implants because they can be customized using various parts. The Rejuvenate hip offers surgeons six stems and 16 necks, and the ABG II has 10 necks and 16 stems that work together.
Metal-on-Metal Problems

The problem, however, is that the neck and stem parts have all-metal conjunctions, Stryker stated, which are to blame for complications similar to those seen in DePuy hip implant patients. Stryker patients are experiencing painful, early failure of their devices because the metal parts are grinding against each other and wearing out. Most hip implants have an average life of 15 years, but the Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck hip stems are failing after just months, by some reports. All-metal hip implants also have been associated with metallosis, or the poisoning of the bloodstream.

Stryker recalled the Rejuvenate and ABG II on July 6, 2012. The Rejuvenate had only been on the market since February 2009.

First DePuy Hip Recall Lawsuit Heard In Ireland, DePuy Hip Replacement Lawyers

Written by lisaspitzer on . Posted in Depuy Hip Replacement News

The DePuy Hip Recall lawyers of the Hip Replacement Helpline are still actively accepting DePuy lawsuits. As a resource the Hip Replacement Helpline is keeping our readers updated on all the current news regarding the litigations. The first trial has been in Ireland. The story follows:

Ireland woman the first there to have defective DePuy hip implant case heard
By Cynthia Diaz on October 17, 2012 | From newsinferno.com
Posted on October 17, 2012 by Joshua Sophy
An Ireland woman is the first in her country to file a lawsuit against the makers of the defective and recalled DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant.

According to a report from Independent.ie, the Irish national news service, Irene Pierson was the first to have her case against DePuy Orthopaedics International heard before the High Court there. She is expected to be one of hundreds, possibly more than a thousand Irish citizens were implanted with the faulty and recalled DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant, to seek legal action against its manufacturer.

In her complaint, Pierson claims she entered into a contract with Health Service Executive (HSE, the country’s national healthcare service) to receive a right hip implant in March 2007 and one for her left hip more than a year later, in September 2008. It was not until October 2010 that she learned via letter from the healthcare service that she had been fitted with the DePuy ASR hip implant twice. This news came just more than a month after the makers of the implant issued a worldwide recall on the artificial joints because of widespread reports of its early failures from recipients.

The DePuy ASR hip implant is a metal-on-metal artificial joint that’s been linked to myriad complications and health risks for recipients of the devices. This recall prompted more people like Pierson to seek damages from the manufacturer, especially after they learned the company had the hip implant approved through questionable means and that it did not have any evidence to support that it was safe or effective.

In the U.S., thousands of recipients of the defective DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant have already filed lawsuits against the company’s American interests, as well as its parent company, Johnson & Johnson. These and other metal-on-metal hip implants were rushed to the market here and elsewhere through the Food and Drug Administration’s 510(k) “fast-track” approval system. This allows medical devices to bypass normal regulatory approval procedures, namely pre-market safety testing, to reach the market.

The result has been tens of thousands of people who are relying on potentially faulty hip implants and any number of complications could force them to undergo costly and painful revision surgeries until they eventually must have the entire device replaced.

Metal-on-metal hip implants have been known to cause serious and some potentially life-threatening complications. As the metal parts rub together through ordinary wear, they distribute small metallic fragments into a recipient’s body, affecting surrounding tissue and organs. An accumulation of the metals cobalt and chromium are signs that a hip implant recipient is suffering from metallosis, or metal poisoning. This can lead to organ and tissue damage if the condition goes unchecked for too long.

While they were touted as being able to last longer than traditional hip implants, recipients of the DePuy ASR hip implant have found the opposite true. Within months, a recipient of a defective hip implant will experience severe pain and inflammation at the site of the implant. They may also hear squeaking or popping of their hip implant.

Revision surgeries are performed to correct these complications but are costly and reduce the chance a recipient of a hip implant will ever regain full mobility again. The first scheduled trial against DePuy Orthopaedics in the U.S. is scheduled for early next year.

Utah Women Hears DePuy Hip Replacement Case In State Court

Written by lisaspitzer on . Posted in Depuy Hip Replacement News

DePuy Hip replacement lawyers are filing Utah cases for failed metal on metal hip replacements

Utah Woman Wins Right To Have DePuy Lawsuit Heard In State Court
April 10, 2012 by: Linda Grayling
DePuy Hip Replacement

A Salt Lake City woman has won her first legal battle with DePuy Orthopaedics over its defective hip replacements, and, in the process, given other victims the hope of receiving fair trials.

In a setback for the subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, a federal judge ruled in March 2012 that LeAnn Brimley can have her case heard individually in Utah’s state court.

She will not be forced to join the multidistrict litigation (MDL) in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio.

Attorneys believe that slow moving MDLs, where all the pre-trial proceedings are consolidated for similar cases, benefit large corporations. DePuy’s legal representation appeared to prove this when they fought aggressively to move Brimley’s case into the MDL.

DePuy had the nerve to claim that having to deal in multiple locations with lawsuits over devices that have endangered thousands could force the company to “suffer a hardship.”

“It’s unconscionable that these huge companies are claiming ‘hardship’ when thousands of victims just like LeAnn Brimley are living through the ‘hardship’ of enduring constant pain, surgery, and blood testing for metal poisoning — all because of the defective ASR hip implant,” said Brimley’s attorney. “Hers is the real ‘hardship’ in this whole situation.”
DePuy Hip Replacement

DePuy Hip Replacement

Utah is the fourth state in which DePuy patients have won the right to have their cases heard in state court. The other cases are in Florida, Nevada and Wisconsin.

In January 2012, a federal judge ruled that two Florida women can keep their ASR hip recall cases in Florida State Court instead of in U.S. Federal Court.

A press release reports the attorneys for the women “argued that DePuy’s Florida based distributor, Bayside Orthopaedics, should be held liable. According to the judge’s order, ‘it is undisputed that Bayside received commissions from DePuy for the marketing and sales of the product in question.

Entities that play an active role in promoting a particular product within the chain of distribution to the general public are strictly liable for any defect in the product.’ ”

DePuy is being sued by more than 5,000 patients after it recalled 93,000 ASR all-metal hip implants in August 2010. The devices included in the recall are the ASR XL Acetabular System and the ASR Hip Resurfacing System.

DePuy recalled the devices after researchers found early failure rates of the device meant 13 percent of patients would need a second corrective surgery within five years. More recently, studies have found the implants shed metal fragments, which have been linked to cancer.

J & J Payoff for DePuy Hip Replacement Lawsuits, DePuy Hip Recall Lawyers

Written by lisaspitzer on . Posted in Depuy Hip Replacement News

Hip replacement helpline lawyers are filing lawsuits for people with failed hip replacements. The first group of payoffs has commenced.

Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), which faces about 8,000 lawsuits over hip implants it recalled in 2010, agreed to pay about $600,000 to resolve three cases in the first settlements of the litigation, people familiar with the accords said.

Officials of J&J’s DePuy unit agreed earlier this month to settle Nevada residents’ suits over the company’s ASR hip implants, two people familiar with the agreement said. The company will pay about $200,000 a case to resolve the suits before they were scheduled to go to trial later this year, the people said. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly about the accords.

J&J officials were able to negotiate settlements “at the low end of what the company should have expected” to pay, Eric Gordon, a business professor at the University of Michigan who follows the pharmaceutical industry, said in a telephone interview yesterday. “J&J should have expected to pay in the $200,000-to-$500,000 range per case.”

J&J’s DePuy unit recalled its 93,000 ASR hips worldwide in 2010, including 37,000 in the U.S., saying more than 12 percent of the devices failed within five years. Lawsuits in federal and state courts describe patients in pain and immobilized by joint dislocations, infections and bone fractures.
Metal Debris

Patients suing J&J, based in New Brunswick, New Jersey, claim metal debris from the hips, made from a cobalt and chromium alloy, causes tissue death around the joint and may increase metal ions in the bloodstream to harmful levels.

Bill Price, a spokesman for J&J, declined in a phone interview yesterday to comment on the settlements.

J&J faces more than 8,000 cases alleging the ASR hips are defective, according to court filings. U.S. District Judge David Katz in Toledo, Ohio, is overseeing about 6,000 federal suits that have been consolidated for pretrial evidence gathering. The drugmaker also is defending itself in more than 2,000 cases filed in courts in California, Maryland, Nevada and other states.

The first settlements involve cases filed in state court in Las Vegas, the people familiar with the accords said. Claims by Annelise Rundle, Martha Bender and Katherine Guy had been consolidated and set for trial Dec. 3, according to court documents.
Three Women

Rundle, 74, Bender, 69, and Guy, 60, all had ASR hip replacements done by the same surgeon during the past six years, court filings in Las Vegas show. All three later had the artificial hips removed after experiencing pain and other side effects, according to the filings.

Tests on Rundle showed she had health problems associated with metal filings from her hip, her lawyers said in the filings. In Bender’s case, doctors discovered evidence of bone damage from the device, lawyers said.

“Each of these plaintiffs has incurred a painful and debilitating hip-revision surgery as a result of the failure of their DePuy ASR Hip,” their lawyers said in a December filing.

J&J lawyer’s countered in court filings that the hips didn’t cause Rundle and the other women to develop life- threatening illnesses.

Medical records turned over by Rundle’s doctors, for example, showed she was “generally healthy with no major medical problems,” the company’s lawyers said in a Jan. 17 court filing in Las Vegas challenging the women’s request for an early trial date.

Brian Franciskato, a Kansas City, Missouri-based lawyer for the three women, declined in a telephone interview today to comment on the settlement.
$800 Million

The company said in January that it spent about $800 million on the recall during the past two years. It wouldn’t estimate its product-liability costs.

J&J faces a state-court trial in Prince George’s County, Maryland, in January involving three hip-replacement recipients, according to court filings. Those cases would be the first to go to trial if they aren’t settled.

The first federal trial of claims over the devices is expected in March or April, lawyers involved in the consolidated cases said earlier this year.

The University of Michigan’s Gordon contends it may cost the drugmaker as much as $2 billion to resolve all litigation over DePuy’s ASR hips.
‘Giant Number’

“They’re looking at a giant number before it’s done because there are a giant number of cases,” Gordon said. The biggest benefit to J&J out the Nevada settlements is that the drugmaker has “anchored settlement expectations at the low end of the range,” he said.

J&J’s rose 8 cents to $67.78 in New York Stock Exchange composite trading. The company’s 4.95 percent bonds, due to mature in May 2033, fell $1.23, or 1 percent, to $121 after news of the hip settlements was announced.

The consolidated Nevada cases are Rundle v. DePuy Orthopaedics Inc., A-11-636272, Clark County District Court (Las Vegas).

The federal case is In re DePuy Orthopedics Inc., ASR Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, 10-MD-2197, U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio (Toledo).
