The Farber Law Group represents numerous patients who have been adversely affected by the faulty DePuy hip implant device so this morning when we opened our new feed we were keenly aware of reports of a DePuy hip implant settlement. Settlement rumors have been rumored for the past few months.
Today, the media is all abuzz with reports such as these:
Wall Street Journal: J&J to Pay at Least $2.5 Billion to Settle Hip Lawsuits
New York Times: Johnson & Johnson to Offer $2.5 Billion Hip Device Settlement
Bloomberg News: J&J Said to Announce $4 Billion Hip-Implant Pact Nov. 19
Fox Business: Report: J&J Reaches $4B Hip Implant Settlement
My Central Jersey: J&J expected to OK multibillion-dollar hip implant settlement
The court still has to approve the settlement and an announcement should provide more details. One report estimates that each patient who has had to have a hip replaced will receive $350,000.
If you are wondering how this news might affect the status of your case, please contact our office.
