Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) January 23, 2013
It is estimated that there are currently 10,000 DePuy hip implant lawsuits (http://lawsuitssettlementfunding.com/depuy-hip-recall-settlement-funding.php) in both state and federal courts. Most of the lawsuits involve the DePuy ASR model, however many DePuy Pinnacle model plaintiffs are now beginning to file claims as well. Legal-Bay and their team predict that there will soon be a sharp rise in lawsuits connected to the DePuy hip implant. With more and more lawsuits piling in everyday, Legal Bay says that there could be as many as 15,000 claims in the near future.
Due to the size of the Depuy litigation and possible high DePuy lawsuit values, there are many questions that are still left unanswered in the market. Recently, trials in Las Vegas and Maryland never saw the light of day for questionable reasons. So far, this has enabled DePuy’s representatives to avoid being grilled on what they knew or didn’t know about the hip’s risk. However, another trial is set to go to court today in Los Angeles and many plaintiffs are hoping that this trial will be an indication of how DePuy plans to defend themselves in the future. Since the litigation is complex and is expected to drag on for many years, Legal-Bay has announced that they will be offering lawsuit funding for DePuy plaintiffs that have already retained lawyers and is also assisting DePuy victims of both the ASR and Pinnacle models with finding the proper lawyer if they haven’t done so already.
Legal-Bay is taking countless applications for DePuy plaintiffs who have applied for settlement funding; and have been a plaintiff advocate firm for the DePuy litigation over the last 2 years. Patty Kirby, Head of Client Relations at Legal-Bay states: “We believe that 2014 will be the start of many DePuy settlement cases in the various state courts and the Ohio Federal Court (MDL no. 2197 Northern District of Ohio). However, as the DePuy litigation starts to take various turns we have joined with Route 72 Systems to disseminate as much information to the victims of the DePuy litigation so that they will always be up-to- date with the current state of affairs.”
Legal-Bay is working on a DePuy lawsuit and Mass Tort Help center with their marketing partner Route 72 Systems and will also be updating press news on their website as news becomes available.
