NEW YORK, July 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, a leading mass tort settlement funding company and plaintiff advocate firm, announced today that they see no changes to the DePuy or Stryker Hip Recall lawsuit news until after the summer months.  Legal-Bay reports that the Stryker litigation had a recent conference in New Jersey in July, but that the litigation is still in its early stages.  The DePuy litigation is on hold until the next "bellwether" trial goes to court in Ohio in September.

Both DePuy and Stryker voluntarily recalled their products.  DePuy's ASR model was pulled in 2010, yet the company is still marketing the Pinnacle Hip, which is also the subject of major litigation and is built very similar to the ASR model.  Stryker has voluntarily pulled its ABG II and Rejuvenate Hip System and although that suit is in its infantile stages, many experts believe the failure rates on the Stryker recalled hips could be much higher than the 15% projected in the DePuy litigation. 

In both cases, experts are predicting billions of dollars of losses for the manufacturers, says Legal-Bay.  Unfortunately for plaintiffs that are in need of their settlement checks relief will not come until at least 2014 now.  However, that's where Legal-Bay's Lawsuit Settlement Cash Advance Program is here to help plaintiffs who simply can't wait any longer.    

"At one point it was expected that the DePuy cases would begin settling this year, but after DePuy had an unforeseen win during their trial in IL, this has really dragged the process along on the ASR cases.  Regardless, we have remained committed to funding all hip lawsuits from all the manufactures including DePuy, Stryker, Wright, Biomet and Zimmer," said Legal-Bay's CEO, Chris Janish
