As we have previously reported, DePuy Orthopedics, Inc., was involved in detailed settlement discussions to resolve thousands of lawsuits involving its ASR hip device. The cases, centralized in federal court as part of a multi-district litigation (“MDL”) and centralized in New Jersey state court, may soon resolve for those plaintiffs who underwent revision surgery. The parties have created a website dedicated to providing news and other information concerning the terms of the settlement offer. That website can be accessed here.
The settlement is valued at approximately $2.5 billion. However, only certain plaintiffs will be eligible for enrollment in the settlement. For more information on whether you are eligible to receive benefits under the agreement, contact Stark & Stark and speak to one of the Mass Tort Attorneys, free of charge.
