With defective medical device lawyers currently investigating DePuy ASR Hip Replacement system cases, Carey Danis & Lowe is optimistic about the future of DePuy ASR Hip lawsuits that go to trial. Kransky v. DePuy, a case being heard in a California Superior Court in Los Angeles, involved the plaintiff, Loren Kransky, and resulted in Kransky receiving a compensatory award of $8.3 million, according to a New York Times report on the [DePuy trial].
Though the 12-person jury in Kransky v. DePuy did not award the plaintiff with a punitive damages, as detailed in the New York Times article, a second DePuy ASR Hip lawsuit has gone to trial in Chicago. The trial in Chicago presents another opportunity for a jury to award a plaintiff with compensatory and punitive damages.
Defective medical device lawyers at Carey Danis & Lowe are closely following the Chicago trial, known as Strum v. DePuy, 2011-L-9352, Circuit Court of Cook County. Carey Danis & Lowe will watch the case to see what evidence will be brought before the jury, and if this evidence persuades them that Johnson & Johnson and DePuy should be punished through payment of punitive damages for malicious and negligent business practices regarding the development and marketing of the DePuy ASR Hip.
A Bloomberg article on Strum v. DePuy states that the trial began with opening statements on March 11, so there remains much more information to be brought forth before the jury.
Lawyers at Carey Danis & Lowe are hopeful that individuals who have been injured by the DePuy ASR Hip implant will be compensated for undergoing numerous revision surgeries, pain resulting from a defective metal-on-metal hip, and other losses resulting from the hip implant. Carey Danis & Lowe is encouraging injured parties to contact the law firm about DePuy ASR Hip cases, especially in light of the Kransky v. DePuy verdict.
