NEW YORK, Feb. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay, the Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announced today that they have secured a credit facility to aggressively begin giving cash advances for plaintiffs in need of cash off of their DePuy ASR Hip Replacement cases.  Legal-Bay is already an industry leader in car and (truck) accident funding and pharmaceutical funding in the lawsuit funding industry.  However, they now believe they will have the most comprehensive legal funding process for DePuy Hip Replacement plaintiffs within the Product Liability sector of the industry. 

The DePuy Hip Replacement Recall Lawsuits have gotten a lot of global attention since Johnson & Johnson has already announced close to a $1Billion dollar "write down" to its earnings in early 2011.  With already 3500 lawsuits filed in U.S. Federal Court in Ohio, and many more expected to be filed in the next 24 months, the total exposure to J&J could reach $2bil.  Unfortunately for the long suffering patients of the defective DePuy Hip Implant/Replacements, the increase in litigation will only delay their needed settlement payments. 

Patty Kirby, Legal-Bay's Head of Customer Relations, commented, "We are already seeing a dramatic increase in our DePuy Hip Applications.  We have seen this same cycle with both Avandia and Vioxx which took several Billion Dollars and many years to settle.  We stand ready with substantial capital to get the long suffering patients of the DePuy Hip Replacements the needed cash advance today in order to pay their bills and make it to their ultimate settlement.  We believe our DePuy Hip Recall Settlement Funding Program will offer the best rates and quickest turnaround industry wide."

Plaintiffs can apply for up to a $50,000.00 Settlement Funding Cash Advance (also referred to in the industry as lawsuit loans or a lawsuit loan) on their DePuy Hip Replacement cases.  Legal-Bay offers a free quote and estimated "case value analysis" within 24 hours from the time their case documents are received.  Legal-Bay, through its website,, and its toll free hotline 877.571.0405, have agents standing by 24 hours a day ready to accept DePuy Hip Replacement funding applications.
