DePuy ASR implant conference postponed

4 comments

Those DePuy ASR hip implant recipients who have not yet received a settlement are waiting for news from the federal court. The Ohio judge hearing the DePuy ASR cases postponed a January 30, 2015 conference due to weather conditions preventing travel from some states.

The hearing, which has yet to be rescheduled, will address how DePuy will resolve cases for ASR recipients who had a revision surgery after August 31, 2013.

Other than the date of the revision surgery, these individuals’ cases have no difference from those ASR cases that qualified under the original ASR Settlement Program. However, DePuy’s defense attorneys are doing what they can to save the company money, including delaying the payout on remaining settlements. It is unclear whether the upcoming conference will provide answers to those waiting to settle their claims.

    I too cannot have revision surgery because my risk factor is way too high……stemming from complications from the first surgery…one can only hope that the judge can see that all of us who are in that particular situation get compensated….you know..when u get right down to it..were in worse shape than the people who already had that piece of garbage removed..we are stuck with it for the rest of our lives….

    Richard and Ben, although nothing specific has been announced yet, individuals who are medically unable to undergo a needed revision may qualify for compensation from DePuy. Contact our office to discuss your individual claim with an attorney today.
