BOSTON -- The Defective Hip Implant Claims Center at Gilman Law LLP has launched a new website to keep the public updated on important developments in the numerous litigations involving product liability lawsuits alleging serious injuries due to defective and/or recalled hip implants. The attorneys of Gilman Law LLP felt this new website was necessary, especially in the light of recently announced settlements involving DePuy ASR hip recall lawsuits, Biomet M2a Magnum hip lawsuits and Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II recall claims.
In light of these recently-announced hip lawsuit settlements, Gilman Law LLP is providing free, no-obligation legal consultations to hip replacement patients who have allegedly suffered serious complications due to defective hip implants manufactured by DePuy Orthopaedics, Stryker Corp., Biomet, Inc. and others. Hip implant recipients may be entitled to compensation if they sustained any of the following injuries within a few years of their initial hip replacement surgery:
- Hip fractures
- Metal poisoning from chromium and cobalt
- Tissue damage
- Bone loss
- Loss of mobility
Eligible individuals who wish to participate in any of the recently announced hip implant settlements MUST contact Gilman Law LLP as soon as possible to ensure their right to compensation is preserved.

The DePuy ASR hip settlement was announced in November 2013 in the U.S. District Court, Northern District Ohio, and will resolve more than 8,000 of the 12,000 product liability claims filed in U.S. courts since the metal-on-metal hips were pulled from the market in 2010. ASR recipients entitled to participate in the settlement include those who underwent revision surgery for a recall-related reason prior to August 31, 2013. Those plaintiffs who are not eligible for compensation under its terms will still retain their right to file a DePuy ASR hip lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson and its DePuy Orthopaedics division. DePuy ASR recipients who have not yet filed such a lawsuit are invited to contact Gilman Law LLP for a free review of their case, as they may still be entitled to pursue a claim. (In re: DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. ASR Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation – MDL 2197)
In January 2014, a settlement was also announced to resolve hundreds of Biomet hip lawsuits pending in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Indiana, involving the metal-on-metal M2a Magnum hip replacement. To participate in this settlement, potential claimants must have undergone revision surgery of an M2a Magnum hip more than 180 days after their initial hip surgery. However, those wishing to file a Biomet hip lawsuit in this litigation must do so no later than April 15, 2014 to preserve their right to compensation via the settlement. (In re: Biomet M2a Magnum Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation – MDL No. 2391)
Finally, court documents filed in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court indicate that five Stryker hip lawsuit settlements have been reached in claims involving the 2012 recall for Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems. The settlements were reached during Phase I of early mediation, and the Court is now preparing to begin Phase II of that process.
