$2.475 Billion Hip Failure Settlement in the Works

Johnson & Johnson and lawyers for patients with failed metal-on-metal hip implants have submitted a possible $2. 475 billion settlement of certain lawsuits involving recalled DePuy ASR hip replacement products.

Johnson & Johnson (J&J) is the corporate parent of DePuy Orthopaedics, the company that distributed the recalled DePuy ASR hip products. Under the proposed settlement agreement, J&J will pay about $2.475 billion in compensation to patients who were forced to have revision surgery to remove and replace the defective ASR hip implants.

The settlement plan anticipates about $2.475 billion in payments by J&J divided as follows:

  • $2 billion to cover basic awards and
  • $475 million to cover additional payments to patients who suffered more significant injuries, including two or more revision surgeries and/or severe complications.

In addition, J&J has agreed to pay all medical costs related to the revision surgeries.

The settlement plan has been submitted to U.S. District Court Judge David A. Katz.
