Status Conference Set in DePuy ASR Hip Multidistrict Litigation

Press release from: Nadrich & Cohen LLP

A status conference in the pending DePuy ASR hip implant MDL has been scheduled for later this month. Nadrich & Cohen LLP is currently offering free case evaluations to patients in all 50 states who believe they were injured by a defective metal hip.

Los Angeles, CA, January 13, 2011 – Nadrich & Cohen LLP reports that a status conference has been scheduled for January 23, 2012 in the pending DePuy ASR hip multidistrict litigation (MDL) proceedings. The MDL, which is being handled in an Ohio federal district court, involves a number of lawsuits filed on behalf of patients who say they suffered serious side effects after receiving a DePuy ASR metal implant.

DePuy Orthopedics, a division of the Johnson & Johnson Company, recalled its ASR hip implant system in 2010 after numerous consumers complained of pain, swelling, loosening and other complications after being fitted with one of the devices. Another of the company’s hip implant products, the Pinnacle hip, has also been the subject of multiple consumer complaints but to date, these devices remain on the market.

Metal hip implants have increasingly become the target of scrutiny as more and more patients report complications. In some cases, patients have required painful revision surgery to correct the problems caused by the metal hips.

A December 2011 New York Times article speculated that the cost of the metal hip implant failures could extend far beyond the settlement and legal fees that DePuy and other hip implant manufacturers may have to pay to injured patients. According to the article, consumers could see increased health insurance premiums, higher taxes and more expensive medical costs in connection with the defective metal hips.

Following the publication of the article, a Forbes contributor suggested that settling the lawsuits could cost Johnson & Johnson and Zimmer Holdings, another target of the litigation, as much as $5 billion.

If you or a loved one has experienced complications after receiving a metal hip implant, you may complete a MedWatch form by visiting www.fda.gov. It’s also recommended that you contact an experienced hip implant injury attorney to discuss your legal rights.

Nadrich & Cohen LLP offers confidential, no-cost consultations to patients across the country who believe they were harmed by a defective hip implant. Help is available by calling the firm’s injury hotline at 1-800-722-0765 or by completing an online case evaluation form at www.depuyhipreplacementlawyers.net.
