DePuy ASR Lawsuit & Settlement Program
A $2.5 billion settlement program was launched in November 2013 to compensate injured patients. The program was developed around 8,000+ patients who experienced metal ion toxicity attributable to metal ion wear from the ASR hip implant and, as a result, underwent hip revision surgery to replace the device.
The settlement program has since expanded to include additional claimants who underwent subsequent revision surgeries and may exceed $4 billion in amount after all claimants have been properly compensated.
How much can qualified claimants receive from the settlement?
Under the settlement program a qualified participant receives a “base” award, determined by factors such as:
- Length of time the ASR was implanted
- Patient’s age
- Smoking history
- Body mass index (BMI)
Supplemental Compensation: Supplemental compensation, in addition to the Base Award, is also available for extraordinary injuries supported by appropriate medical documentation, such as revision surgery complications and delayed recovery scenarios.
How do I know if I qualify for a DePuy ASR settlement?
Meet with our lawyers to receive a free consultation. We can help you determine whether you could qualify for a claim. If we feel that you are a good fit, we will help you submit a claim. A neutral Claims Processor will determine whether the claimant is eligible and, if so, which base factors apply. The Claims Processor must base these decisions solely on information contained in the patient’s contemporaneous medical records.
