As we previously reported, DePuy recalled its ASR hip replacement device after studies allegedly revealed the device had a higher-than-normal failure rate.  Currently, there are thousands of cases pending across the country related to the ASR device.

Counsel for DePuy Orthopaedics filed a motion in the federal litigation in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio in May 2013, to apply the punitive damages rules of the plaintiffs’ home states.  DePuy’s counsel filed the motion in hopes of limiting a potentially high punitive damage award .

If you have had a hip replacement, which used the DePuy ASR or DePuy Pinnacle devices, you can contact Stark & Stark and speak to one of the Mass Tort attorneys, free of charge, who can help assess any claims that you might have against the DePuy manufacturers.
