Lawsuit Settlement News Website Updates Status of DePuy ASR Settlement Payments, Along With Other Hip Litigations

Lawsuit Help Center reports that some DePuy ASR cases have been paid, while other plaintiffs have still yet to receive settlement award letters, while DePuy Pinnacle, Stryker, and Wright Hip Litigations remain in pending litigation for the foreseeable fut

RICHMOND, Va., Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MT Services LLC, A Lawsuit Settlement News Reporting company, which operates a lawsuit help center: lawsuitsettlementnews.com, reported today there are still ongoing litigations with hip replacement manufacturers such as DePuy Pinnacle, Stryker, and Wright Hips. While the majority of claims against DePuy ASR models are coming to an end, some cases with revisions after 8/31/13, high chromium and Cobalt blood counts are still being reviewed by lawyers working closely with MTS. Other hip litigations continue to plod along in the courts and settlements still could be a long way out in the future. However, DePuy Pinnacle, Stryker, and Wright Hip cases are still continuing to gain attention in Federal and State Courts throughout the U.S. based on the increase in lawsuit filings in each respective litigation.   

Chris Janish, CEO of MTS commented, "While we are seeing that some of the ASR cases have already been paid, many of our clients are still waiting for their award letters and ultimate payments which could last until the end of the year. Regardless, the process does seem to be moving quickly, even though it is not fast enough for clients who need lawsuit funding today on their settled ASR's. However, many ASR patients remain who still have valid claims if they have not retained a lawyer yet, as well as the Stryker, Wright, and DePuy Pinnacle cases.  Some of these litigations could drag out in the court for years. Regardless, we urge any patients with faulty hips, or Metallosis conditions to contact us immediately if they are in need of a free legal consultation with a top hip law firm or hip recall lawyer."
