Class action lawyers announce another DePuy recall: DePuy Hip replacement and custom joint implants

DePuy has been forced to recall another product. FDA Forces DePuy Recall of Custom Joint Implants
September 5, 2012 by: Linda Grayling

DePuy Orthopaedics is being forced to recall yet another line of hip and other artificial joint implants. This time, the Johnson & Johnson subsidiary is pulling back its custom orthopedic devices because of U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) safety concerns. The recall notice was issued on August 24 — two years after its ASR hip-implant recall.

DePuy agreed in January 2012 to stop manufacturing the custom devices after a warning letter from the FDA. In it, the agency said the implants were being sold without federal approval, which requires an application with the FDA and clinical trials. DePuy argued that the devices were exempt because they were already approved by the FDA and modified only by doctors’ prescriptions, which is permitted by law.

But the FDA disagreed: “Although the devices’ size and shape may vary with each patient’s anatomy, the standardized design characteristics do not vary among the devices manufactured. The fact that final specifications are tailored to match a patient’s anatomy does not preclude a clinical study or submission of a marketing application for the devices.”

The FDA also said DePuy used poor quality-control systems in the production of the 14 types of custom implants. It ordered the company to recall any implants that had been delivered to surgeons prior to the halt in manufacturing earlier this year. More than 8,300 customized DePuy implants have been sold since 1999, but the number of unused devices in the recall is unknown.

DePuy already is dealing with a massive global recall of 93,000 ASR hip-replacement and hip-resurfacing devices that was announced in August 2010. The defective metal-on-metal hip implants have been shown to fail within a few years, resulting in painful revision surgeries. Typically, all-metal hip implants are expected to last about 15 years.

In addition, the DePuy artificial hips produce metal shavings when the ball and socket components grind against each other, causing metallosis, or metal poisoning of the blood. One British study found that when the metal debris becomes embedded in surrounding tissues, it increases the patient’s risk of bladder and kidney cancers.

In the United States, more than 8,000 patients have filed lawsuits against DePuy over their dangerous hip implants. Of those, 6,000 federal cases are part of a multidistrict litigation (MDL) that is being overseen by Judge David A. Katz in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio. The first case in the MDL is expected to go to trial in March or April 2013.

The remaining state cases are winding their way through the courts. The first three DePuy ASR lawsuits, which were scheduled to be tried together in Las Vegas, Nevada, were settled out of court recently. Bloomberg reported the plaintiffs each received about $200,000.

The vaginal mesh lawsuits may well be one of the largest ligigations of a hrmful device hurting women we have seen to date.

If is currently thought that over 300,000 women are implanted with various vaginal mesh devices for uterus, bladder and bowel prolapse as well as urinary incontinence. The mesh has caused very serious complications and the numbers of filings continue to grow.

Transvaginal mesh side effects are so common, in fact, that hundreds of lawsuits have been filed by women seeking compensation for their pain and suffering, medical bills, and lost wages due to vaginal mesh complications. The number of vaginal mesh lawsuits being filed is so large that five MDLs have been created to quickly and effectively deal with them. Four vaginal mesh MDLs have been centralized in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia, while a fifth MDL has been created in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Georgia.

There are a number of vaginal mesh MDL's currently

Vaginal mesh lawyers representing Plaintiffs argue that even with five vaginal mesh lawsuit MDLs, there is still a need to create a sixth MDL. Federal judges will meet later this month to hear oral arguments regarding whether a new vaginal mesh lawsuit MDL should be created in West Virginia, where U.S. District Judge Joseph R. Goodwin is overseeing five transvaginal mesh MDLs.

Discovery to begin for vaginal mesh lawsuits

Unsurprisingly, discovery is the process of “discovering” information or evidence to support a case. For the vaginal mesh multidistrict litigation, the pretrial discovery process will include interrogatories (fact-finding questionnaires), depositions, and the collection of other paperwork and information to support the plaintiffs’ cases. Judge Goodwin’s issuance of this order is an important step to moving forward with the MDL’s, as it signals the next step toward the first transvaginal mesh lawsuit trials.

The multi district litigation department of Class Action Lawyer Network has authorized an expanded division to continue to help women file vaginal mesh lawsuits for the pain and suffering they have undegone from these failed mesh devices.

This division is headed up by a female medical social worker who is is felt is best equipped to deal with women in crisis from the vaginal mesh. Women need support as well as help finding a doctor and is felt this is best handled by our social work team.

Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits, You Must file Before the Statute Is Up

Written by Class Action Lawyer on . Posted in Medical Device Lawsuits

Time to File Depends on the Date of Injury

Statutes of limitations are state laws that require plaintiffs to file their cases within set time periods. Because all defective medical device lawsuits are tort claims, they are covered by state law and not federal law. Any medical device lawsuits before U.S. District Courts are claims brought under state law by plaintiffs from states other than the ones in which the manufacturers are located. The purpose of statutes of limitations is to encourage injured parties to bring their claims in a timely manner to prevent courts from dealing with old records and hazy memories.
vaginal mesh mdl lawsuits image
The amount of time a statute of limitations gives someone to file a claim depends on the type of claim the plaintiff is filing. Commonly, the limitations period for products liability cases is two or three years from the date of injury. When the injury occurred matters significantly from a legal standpoint. Sometimes, the injury “occurs” the day the vaginal mesh was implanted; other times it “occurs” when the plaintiff first knew or could have reasonably found out about the injury. This can be troubling for vaginal mesh recipients because the pain and symptoms of mesh erosion might not occur until long after the initial procedure. Because some women might have already had their vaginal mesh problems resolved years ago and didn’t meet with a Vaginal mesh lawyer, the statute of limitations might have already expired for them, and they will be unable to obtain compensation via a transvaginal mesh lawsuit. If you are having complications ffrom a vaginal mesh it is in your best interests not to wait and file with a lawyer immediately. You must not run the risk of losing your rights to file a lawsuit. The vaginal mesh complications are sever and the mesh implants are ruining lives. You Must send a message and contact a lawyer today. 1 877 522-2123
