As we have previously reported, DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. has recalled its ASR hip replacement device. There are thousands of cases pending across the country related to the ASR device. These cases continue to proceed in state and federal courts.
The cases currently pending in Bergen County, New Jersey continue to move closer to trial as the first bellwether trial is set to start on October 21, 2013. Faced with approximately 10,000 lawsuits focused on the ASR device, DePuy started to phase out production of the faulty device this past spring.
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.
