DePuy Hip Implant Lawsuit Funding Latest News: Approximately 6500 Cases Now Filed against J&J

Legal-Bay.com Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company projects total cases to be filed to be over 10,000 against DePuy and Johnson & Johnson.

 
PRLog - Jul. 8, 2012 - Las Vegas, Nevada -July 8, 2012- As the first DePuy case is set to go to trial in Dec. of 2012 in Las Vegas, the total number of DePuy lawsuits filed is approaching 7,000.  Drug watch reported over 6,000 cases being filed already earlier this year; and now Legal-bay.com has been informed that the number is over 6500 and climbing every day.  Over 4,000 are currently consolidated in Federal Court and over 2,000 are in state courts in Nevada, Ohio, California, and Maryland.  

Legal-bay.com has projected that they believe the cases will top 10,000 total suits when it is all said and done.  With 93K Hip Implants installed over the last 6 years, there is a high probablity that almost 15% will eventually become defective.  This could lead to DePuy being one of the largest "mass tort" settlements ever.  

Patty Kirby, Head of Client Relations at Legal-bay.com commented on the wave of lawsuits being filed, "We are seeing increase in DePuy lawsuit settlement funding applications daily, this is clearly due to more cases being filed everyday.  There is still a long way to go in this process and we expect the DePuy and Johnson & Johnson litigation will drag on for at least another couple years.  However, clients are able to access funds today through our DePuy lawsuit cash advance program where clients can get up to $50,000.00 against their ultimate settlement right now."  

Legal-bay.com projects some of the DePuy cases to be worth in excess of $500,000.00.  By taking what plaintiffs call a "lawsuit loan" for $50,000.00 today, DePuy suffers can pay for their bills and live their lives normally while still having 90% of their settlement still available to them whenever their settlement comes.  The projected settlement payments are not expected until mid to late 2013 or even 2014.
