DePuy ASR Hip Lawsuit News: Settlement Reached in California Hip Case, Rottenstein Law Group LLP Reports

Digital Journal

Johnson & Johnson subsidiary DePuy Orthopaedics has agreed to settle a DePuy ASR hip lawsuit before what would have been the first bellwether trial in a California state court consolidation of ASR cases
Robert Eugene Ottman had alleged that his metal-on-metal ASR hip implant caused him to suffer from several alleged side effects, including the need for revision surgery because of device failure. Ottman's case was to be the first trial in the state consolidation of ASR cases, set to begin in a couple weeks, according to court documents (DePuy ASR Hip System Cases; CJC-10-004649, San Francisco Superior Court, Calif.). Settlement details were not available at press time.

“A settlement is encouraging,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group. “If DePuy and J&J are interested in settling these cases, and they are offering reasonable settlement amounts, then victims might see money to compensate them for injuries much sooner than if each person has to take his or her case to trial.”
