DePuy ASR Settlement Round 2 Enrollment!

This week, DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. announced it is extending the DePuy ASR settlement program for a new group of plaintiffs who were excluded from the settlement announced in November 2013. This new settlement is referred to as the “Round 2 Settlement”. The enrollment deadline for Round 2 of the U.S. DePuy ASR Settlement Program is May 1, 2015. The Settlement Program is a voluntary program and was established via the Settlement Agreement dated November 19, 2013. The Settlement Agreement is between DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. and the plaintiffs. It is meant to compensate eligible DePuy ASR patients who underwent revision surgery (replacing the hip), during certain time periods as outlined within the agreement.

If you had your DePuy ASR revised after 8/31/2013, and on or before 1/31/2015, you may be eligible for the Round 2 Settlement.  Attorneys William Kershaw and Stuart Talley represent numerous clients implanted with DePuy ASR hips. Many of our clients enrolled in the first round of the settlement, which was open to individuals who were revised on or before August 31, 2013. Therefore, our clients and individuals who underwent revision surgery after September 1, 2013 until January 31, 2015 are now eligible to participate in this new round of the settlements.

The settlement terms for Round 2 are nearly identical to the terms from the prior U.S. DePuy ASR Settlement program.  The executed Master Settlement Agreement will post on the Claims Processor website in a few weeks. Our attorneys can help determine whether this settlement is right for you, and if the settlement adequately compensates your individual situation.

Under the Settlement Agreement, there is a significant deduction for plaintiffs who are not represented by an attorney. In fact, unrepresented plaintiffs will receive approximately 34% less than those who have an attorney.

If you do not have a case on file, it is important you file one immediately. It is necessary to update Registration on or before April 2, 2015, pursuant to the terms of the Round 2 Master Settlement Agreement.  Our attorneys will help get your potential case on file, and make sure your information is up to date, specifically for those individuals eligible for Round 2.

If you were implanted with an ASR hip, contact our firm for a free case consultation. You can call us, toll free, at (888) 997-5170, or fill out the confidential contact form found on this page.
