DePuy Metal Hip Litigation: Lieff Cabraser Provides Video Update

Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein LLP
Posted on: 06 Feb 13

Lexi J. Hazam, a lawyer at the national plaintiffs’ law firm Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP, has released a video on YouTube summarizing the latest news in the DePuy metal hip implant litigation against DePuy Orthopaedics and its parent company Johnson & Johnson. Watch the video at:

The New York Times recently reported, based on documents unsealed in the first personal injury case to proceed to trial against DePuy, that Johnson & Johnson conducted an internal analysis in 2011 that projected that the device would fail within five years in nearly 40 percent of patients who received it. This analysis was not released to the public at the time it was prepared.

“If DePuy’s reported internal analysis proves correct, thousands of patients who were implanted with the ASR hip implant will suffer injuries from the device, including in many cases metallosis and a painful revision surgery,” stated Ms. Hazam.
