· Only certain individuals who underwent revision surgery applies.
· The revision must occur more than 180 days after the initial hip was implanted. For most people, that is not an issue. Further, the revision cannot be a result of an infection. For example, say you had your DePuy ASR hip implanted, later contracted an infection in the hip joint, and underwent revision surgery.That case would not qualify. There is very specific criteria concerning the qualifications for an infection.
· This settlement does not apply to individuals without revision surgery or people unable to undergo revision due to health issues. Those claims are still pending and are not resolved as part of the settlement. It will need litigation at some point in the future. We anticipate there will be another settlement some time down the road involving those individuals, but not at this moment.
