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)

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
