Depuy Lawsuits Consolidated by Federal Judge
Depuy lawsuits over the recalled Depuy hip implant device were consolidated this week by a federal judge in Ohio. The multi-district Depuy class action suit involves about 150 federal cases from different states. Ohio federal district court judge David A. Katz will supervise evidence gathering efforts in lawsuits over the Depuy ASR hip implant, which was recalled by Depuy parent company Johnson and Johnson in August after many implants stopped fuctioning properly and caused harm to people with the implants. The federal consolidation should not affect any individual Depuy lawsuit that is not part of the federal action.
The Depuy ASR Acetabular hip implant was a popular metal hip implant used in an estimated 93,000 hip surgeries. It was later learned that the devices were prone to failure and releasing metal shavings into the body; causing pain and often the need for a second revisionary surgery due to the design defects. Some Depuy attorneys believe Johnson and Johnson’s liability for future Depuy lawsuits will be in the billions of dollars.
Depuy has released statements that they are committed to covering “reasonable and customer costs” for patients who have been hurt by their hip implants. People who have received a Depuy ASR hip implant are urged to consult with their physicians and an experienced Depuy attorney to disuss their individual situations.
