DePuy Hip Lawsuits Skyrocket After Consolidation Order


The latest development in this tragic occurrence is that the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multi-District Litigation has consolidated the various DePuy hip recall lawsuits and in an Order earlier this month, the Panel put all these cases, filed all over the country, into one courtroom to be heard: that of Judge David A. Katz in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio.

As you’ll recall from our prior coverage of this travesty, Johnson & Johnson has a subsidiary company, DePuy Orthopaedics Inc., which is in the business of making and selling hip implants. However, these particular products are metal-on-metal hip implants, and they are defective. DePuy didn’t let anyone know about this, of course. Didn’t warn the doctors. Didn’t warn the folks who were having their product put inside their bodies.

The number of people that may have been compromised by these faulty hip replacements is huge. If you or a loved one has had a hip replacement, then please confirm what product was used — and if it was made by this company, have your situation evaluated, both by a doctor and by a lawyer.
