The Farber Law Group, a personal injury law firm located in Bellevue, Washington, represents people who have been seriously injured by the now-recalled DePuy ASR hip replacements. We have been closely monitoring the couple of cases that have gone to trial and the settlements that each of the victims received.
DePuy may be considering settling cases rather than taking them trial after a Los Angeles jury awarded a plaintiff $8.3M.
In reading several blogs and reports in Bloomberg News and The National Law Journals, it appears that DePuy Orthopedics Inc., may be close to settling more than 10,000 lawsuits brought against it. Bloomberg News says that Johnson & Johnson, DePuy’s parent company, may have set aside $3 billion to compensate the victims of the defective implants.
Some blogs are even suggesting that several cases that were slated for trial have already been settled on the QT. One such case scheduled for California court appears to be settled and one in New Jersey has been recorded as resolved and the cases were removed from Bergen County District Court trial calendar.
In Ohio where several federal cases were consolidated, the September 24 trial date has been postponed. Perhaps there may be settlements in the works before this case goes to trial.
We will keep you apprised to what we learn about case settlements and are keeping our clients abreast of the fast changing legal landscape.
