The official website about the settlement is available at www.usasrhipsettlement.com. We encourage everyone to visit this website for detailed information concerning the settlement.
November 19, 2013 – Today in Toledo, Ohio, DePuy Orthopedics announced they were initiating a voluntary settlement program in an effort to resolve approximately 8,000 lawsuits filed against them from the recall of their DePuy ASR prosthetic hip. Under the program, individuals who underwent revision surgery of their DePuy ASR hip prior to August 31, 2013 will receive a “base award” of $250,000 to settle their claims against DePuy. That base offer can adjust downward for a variety of health factors including the plaintiff’s age, the plaintiff’s smoking history, the plaintiff’s weight, and the length of time the implant was present prior to removal.
Under the program, there is a separate fund available to provide adjustments upward for individuals who underwent two revision surgeries or complications following their revision surgery. The extent of upward adjustments is extremely complicated and is based on a variety of individual factors.
The settlement does not impact or affect your rights if you have not had your ASR hip revised. The unrevised cases will continue to go forward. In the future, we expect DePuy will be forced to either settle these cases or submit them to a jury.
