Which DePuy ASR hip recipients are excluded in the latest settlement?

  • Now, not everyone who has had a revision surgery applies.
  • As I mentioned in the last post, the revision has to have occurred more than 180 days after the initial hip was put in.  For most people, that is not an issue.  Further, the revision cannot be a result of an infection.  For example, if you had your DePuy ASR hip put in and you contracted an infection in the hip joint several months later and as a result the hip has to be taken out, that cadepuyrecall1se would not qualify.  There is going to be very specific criteria for what qualifies for an infection.
  • This settlement does not apply to any people whose hip has not yet been revised or people who cannot get it revised because of health issues even though it should be revised.  The claims of those people are still pending and are not resolved as part of the settlement and will have to be litigated at some point in the future.  We anticipate there will be another settlement some time down the road involving those individuals, but right now there isn’t.
