The Rottenstein Law Group, while disappointed by this verdict, notes that this trial could be an outlier and that plaintiffs could still be awarded millions of dollars in future DePuy ASR lawsuits. The firm maintains an informational website at www.depuyrecallnewscenter.com, which offers updates on the ASR and explains the process for filing an ASR lawsuit.


Chicago, Ill. (PRWEB) April 16, 2013


A jury in the second Depuy ASR trial in the nation found in favor of defendant DePuy Pharmaceuticals after a monthlong trial in Cook County Circuit Court in Illinois, according to court records (Strum v. DePuy (2011-L-009352, Cook County [Ill.] Circuit Court)). The Rottenstein Law Group, while disappointed by this verdict, notes that this trial could be an outlier and that plaintiffs could still be awarded millions of dollars in future DePuy ASR lawsuits. The firm maintains an informational website at www.depuyrecallnewscenter.com, which offers updates on the ASR and explains the process for filing an ASR lawsuit.


Strum, an Illinois nurse, had claimed that Johnson & Johnson subsidiary DePuy marketed its metal-on-metal DePuy ASR hip implant, despite knowing it had a defective design. Strum’s lawyer had said in closing arguments that Strum should be awarded $5 million, citing the pain and suffering she experienced after receiving the implant in 2008 and requiring revision surgery in 2011, according to Bloomberg.* The first ASR trial in the nation in Los Angeles saw the plaintiff receive more than an $8.3 million award for damages.

Rottenstein Law Group previews the forthcoming DePuy ASR trial in Los Angeles, focusing on the witness lists of plaintiffs Sheryl and Loren Kransky and defendant DePuy Orthopaedics.

 

(PRWEB) January 17, 2013

 

The Rottenstein Law Group, a DePuy ASR hip law firm, is closely monitoring developments in the run-up to the nation’s first trial of a DePuy ASR lawsuit, set to begin on Jan. 22 in Los Angeles Superior Court.

 

Both the defendant, Johnson & Johnson subsidiary DePuy, and the plaintiffs, Loren and Sheryl Kransky, plan to call dozens of witnesses, according to court documents for the case (In re: Loren Kransky and Sheryl Kransky v. DePuy, Inc., et al., BC456086, Los Angeles Superior Court). Witnesses include several current and former DePuy employees, doctors, other experts and family members, besides the plaintiffs themselves.

 

“Because this is the first of possibly many DePuy ASR hip replacement trials, it is likely to be a good indicator of the type of defenses DePuy might assert in future trials,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group.
