Claimants Should Not Delay Filing DePuy ASR Hip Recall Claims

Ennis & Ennis, P.A. Continues to Offer Free Nationwide Confidential Consultations to Patients with DePuy ASR Hip Implants
 
Aug. 29, 2012 - PRLog -- Claimants having a potential lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson (J&J) for a defective DePuy hip implant should not delay in getting their claims filed.  J& J may take the position that a two-year statute of limitations period or time within which to file a claim expired on August 26, 2012, two years after the date of the recall. To date, no judges have ordered a halt and statute of limitations periods vary from state to state. However, DePuy’s attorneys may argue for a universal two-year statute of limitations, cutting off any future claims.

The statute of limitations period for each DePuy ASR hip recall should depend on the state the claim is filed, where the initial and possible subsequent surgery took place and the circumstances surrounding the injury. However, approximately half of the states have a two-year statute of limitations period, which may prevent future filings depending on the date of surgery.

Attorney David Ennis states that he is very concerned for claimants who have not hired an attorney and are trying to settle their claims directly with J&J. Unfortunately, if the two-year statute of limitations period runs in their case without a settlement having been reached before August 26, 2012, claimants may now be time barred from filing a claim.  It is important for claimants to seek a legal opinion regarding liability, damages and the statute of limitations period in these cases.

There are approximately 6,000 cases in the U.S. most of which are pending before Judge David Katz in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio.
