DePuy ASR Hip Lawsuit Settlement News A Proposed $2.5 Billion

The DePuy ASR settlement agreement provides an for a settlement  award of $250,000 for each person. This settlement can also be  reduced due to factors, such as whether they were a smoker at the time of their revision or prior medical history.

Supplemental DePuy Lawsuit Settlement Award

In cases were a plaintiff underwent multiple revision surgeries, experienced extraordinary medical events associated with their revision procedure, or experiences certain extraordinary injuries in the future, they may be eligible for a supplemental award.

 

According to a report from The New York Times, the settlement  will only be finalized if 94% of eligible plaintiffs agree to its terms.  Most of these claims are in the  Depuy ASR MDL, multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio, where the DePuy ASR lawsuit settlement was announced yesterday. (In re: DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. ASR Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation – MDL 2197)
