New York, NY (PRWEB) November 12, 2012
By RLG’s count, as of November 1, 2012, 5,855 individual federal lawsuits against DePuy alleging harms caused by the company’s ASR hip implant devices have been consolidated in the multidistrict litigation pending in the Northern District of Ohio before Judge David Katz (MDL no. 2197). The multidistrict litigation was first created in December 2010 by the United States Panel on Multidistrict Litigation. Johnson & Johnson subsidiary DePuy Orthopaedics, manufacturer of the embattled ASR systems, had publically announced a recall of the company’s ASR Hip Resurfacing System and the ASR XL Acetabular System on August 24, 2010.
The first trials of lawsuits brought by plaintiffs alleging harm caused by DePuy ASR hip replacement devices are expected to begin before the end of this year. Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group, says, “We implore anyone with a friend or relative who has received a hip replacement device since 2003 to reach out to that person and recommend that he or she consult a physician immediately and then speak to a qualified personal injury lawyer.”
