DePuy ASR Trial Update

The first trials involving DePuy ASR hip replacement lawsuits were scheduled to begin in early 2013. These DePuy ASR hip replacement recall trials will be important because they will gauge how juries might rule in similar claims, and could influence settlement negotiations. The first two DePuy ASR trials for claims filed in the federal multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio (MDL 2197) are scheduled to begin May 6, 2013 and July 8, 2013 respectively. Others filed in state court have already begun.

DePuy ASR Trial Maryland

The first DePuy ASR trial was supposed to begin in Maryland state court in January 2013. However, on the day of opening statements, the Plaintiff withdrew her case and was reportedly planning to re-file her lawsuit in the DePuy ASR hip litigation underway Ohio federal court.

DePuy ASR Trial Los Angeles

In February 2013, a Los Angeles Superior Court jury began hearing claims in a state DePuy ASR lawsuit. During trial, a large amount of evidence was introduced that raised questions about Johnson Johnson and DePuy Orthopedics’ handling of the ASR, and that indicated the companies were aware of its problems years before the DePuy ASR recall. The trial ended with the jury awarding $8.3 million to the Plaintiff, after finding DePuy was liable for selling a defective hip implant.

DePuy ASR Trial Illinois

Shortly after the DePuy ASR trial ended in Los Angeles, jury selection began in another in Chicago, Illinois. During opening statements, the attorney for the Plaintiff in the Illinois DePuy ASR trial argued that even before she received her hip implant, “DePuy knew that the design flaws in this defective device could cause it to shed those particles into patients, causing tissue death, causing high blood metal ion levels and the need for the serious and unnecessary second surgery.”

DePuy ASR Hip Recall

The DePuy ASR hip system recall was announced in August 2010, System, after data from the National Joint Registry of England and Wales showed that 1 out of every 8 patients (12%-13%) who had received the devices had to undergo revision surgery within five years of receiving it. The recall involved both the ASR Hip Resurfacing System and ASR Acetabular System; however, only the ASR Acetabular System was sold in the U.S. Prior to the DePuy ASR Hip recall, roughly 93,000 defective ASR hip replacements were sold by DePuy and implanted in patients in the U.S. and abroad.

DePuy ASR Hip Recall FDA Response

In the wake of the DePuy ASR hip system recall, the U.S. Food Drug Administration (FDA) launched a review of metal-on-metal hip implants. In July 2012, an FDA advisory panel concluded there were few reasons to use such devices. In January 2013, the FDA advised patients with such implants to undergo metal ion testing and imaging screening if they were experiencing symptoms of a failing hip implant. The agency also proposed a new rule that would reclassify metal-on-metal hips as high-risk medical devices, which would require they undergo human tests before coming on the market.

DePuy ASR Settlement News

So far, only a handful of plaintiffs have reached a DePuy ASR settlement with Johnson Johnson. In late August 2012, three plaintiffs in a DePuy ASR lawsuit scheduled to go to trial in Nevada state court reached a settlement amounting to roughly $200,000 per plaintiff. However, it is widely believed that the figure is well below what DePuy and Johnson Johnson could be expected to pay.

A DePuy ASR Settlement in 2013?

It’s too early to say if there will be a DePuy ASR Settlement in 2013. However, in late 2012 Bloomberg.com reported that Johnson Johnson had offered a global settlement averaging about $200,000 per claim. Plaintiffs’ attorneys rejected the offer as too low. Following the verdict in the Los Angeles trial, some experts speculated that Johnson Johnson might renew efforts to reach a DePuy ASR settlement. It is believed such a settlement could cost the company around $3 billion.

Depuy ASR Hip Replacement Symptoms Complications

Hundreds of patients fitted with the DePuy ASR hip replacement system have been forced to undergo painful revision surgery after suffering serious complications related to the failing devices. Some of these DePuy ASR hip replacement symptoms and complications include:

• Swelling or pain in the effected hip or surrounding areas

• Difficulty walking or pain in the hip while walking

• Grinding, popping or clicking noises in the hip area

• Inflammation or infection in the affected hip

• Dislocation or improper positioning of the implant

• Loosening of the implant when the device is not attached in the correct position to the bone

• Dislocation of the implant components

• Bone fractures at the hip

• Metal poisoning, or metallosis, which is a reaction to the metal debris that is shed when components of the device rub together

Thank You From The Bottom Of My Heart For All Your Help

Andres,

I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your help. Tonight is the first night since January that I can finally breath a sigh of relief. Your determination and dedication to my case was by far beyond what I could ever imagined.

We were very fortunate to meet David Krangle
My husband and myself had been involved in a multiple vehicle accident 5 years ago. At that time we were given the name of Mr. David Krangle, attorney. It took close to 5 years of very diligent work for Mr Krangle to complete our case to everyone’s satisfaction. During those years of endless hours and hours of work that he put into our case yet whenever we reached out to Dave (as the years allowed us to call him) he was always available to us. His patience did seem endless. His professionalism in researching everything to make our turnout perfect for us was everything we expected and let us rest knowing things are following the right path. I know we were treated with the utmost respect from various insurance companies and other attorney’s because that was something Mr Krangle made sure of. In difficult times it can be intimidating to work with a professional but we were very fortunate to meet David Krangle who had the ability to share warmth and compassion with us during a trying time. Those are traits that we admired in David Krangle and are delighted to have worked with him.

Dave Krangle Worked Restlessly On This Case Until We Won
I consider David Krangle as my attorney for many years now. Going back about 13 years ago my father was involved in a hit and run accident. David had gone the extra mile to win our case….. Mr. David Krangle worked restlessly on this case until we won the case. Since then, if anybody asks for a good attorney I recommend David Krangle with confidence. He has helped a number of my friends and relatives and they all appreciated his professionalism, prompt responses to any inquiry during case development, careful study of all details pertaining to their case. He treats his clients as family. Thank you, Mr. Krangle, wishing you a continued success, good health and prosperity.

Absolutely Instrumental in Helping Me Expose Medicare Fraud That My Former Employer Was Engaging In
When you have to fight Goliath you better call David. Dave was absolutely instrumental in helping me expose Medicare fraud that my former employer (one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world) was engaging in. Dave took the time to listen to my concerns and my evidence. He worked tirelessly to bring the best resources to table so that our case would be investigated thoroughly and prosecuted. In the end, the Goliath was defeated thanks to Dave!

Strongly Recommend Alonso Krangle As a Highly Experienced And Respected Firm

I consulted a close friend and well respected lawyer in the mid-Atlantic region regarding my hip revision surgery due to a medical device recall. Without hesitation, he strongly recommended contacting Alonso Krangle LLP to discuss my case. In his view, Alonso Krangle possessed extensive knowledge and experience in the type of litigation my case required, as well the respect of those throughout the judicial field for their professionalism. Equally as important, their personal focus on each individual’s case gives the client a feeling they are their only concern. My friend’s assessment could not have been more accurate.

Although in New York, Alonso Krangle could not have been more responsive or accommodating if they were located here in Virginia. I cannot recall a single time when my wife or I called their office and did not speak to either Andres Alonso or David Krangle. They were always completely available and ready to answer any and all of our questions. Their advice and recommendations were always honest, sincere, and accurate enabling us to plan accordingly. Legal proceedings can be a long process, but we never felt left out or forgotten thanks to timely updates initiated by Alonso Krangle. In the end, everything turned out as Alonso Krangle estimated from the beginning. I could not have expected better personal attention or concern from a family member handling my case. As with my friend, I too, would not hesitate to strongly recommend Alonso Krangle as a highly experienced and respected firm that will treat you like family.
