All potential claimants must register for the DePuy ASR settlement no later than January 6, 2014. Registration in no way signifies a claimant’s commitment or intent to enroll in the settlement program
Fortunately, the accord will not bar individuals who have the ASR implant from requesting future compensation should the device fail down the road. This caveat will ultimately tack millions if not billions of dollars to the final amount of the settlement, which was outlined to Judge Katz less than two weeks ago. Judge Katz is overseeing the DePuy Orthopedics Inc., ASR Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, 10-MD-2197, in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio.
