LOS ANGELES, July 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, the Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, disclosed today a new program for claimants looking for assistance in hip litigations prior to receiving settlement compensation. Several hip implant, hip replacement, and hip restoration systems are under fire due to painful side effects and complications. Legal-Bay has increased attention on hip cases and is actively funding cases involving DePuy ASR, DePuy Pinnacle, Stryker ABG II and Rejuvenate, Biomet M2a 38 and M2a Magnum Hip Replacement, Wright Profemur Hip System, Zimmer Hips, and others not listed. Clients experiencing side effects from the hips, including Cobalt and Chromium metal poisoning –known as Metallosis- that are waiting for their settlements can work with Legal-Bay and receive legal funding quickly, as opposed to waiting years to settle their claim through the courts.

Patty Kirby, Head of Client Relations commented on the company's focus on hip lawsuit funding, "We have been a leader in funding many of the metal-on-metal hips, especially with clients experiencing Metallosis. It is clear that since the DePuy ASR and Biomet settlements, that almost all of the hips with metal components are causing metal poisoning in a high percentage of the patients. Stryker hip cases seem to be the highest of default rates, which we are funding aggressively, as well as urging clients of Stryker hips to seek legal consultation if they haven't done so already."

Several recalls and settlements have already occurred in the recent past due to hip complications. In 2010 Johnson & Johnson's, parent company of DePuy Orthopedics recall included DePuy ASR Hip Replacement System, with approximately a $2.5 billion settlement that followed in 2013. J&J agreed to settle 7,500 hip lawsuit claims with approximately $250k per case, the largest product liability settlement in U.S History. However, many patients remain unsettled or without legal representation that are having issues with ASR's product; and the Pinnacle hip–which is designed very similar to the ASR-has not been recalled but thousands of lawsuits are still pending in the courts.   

On July 6th 2012 Stryker Corp. recalled its two metal on metal systems, the Rejuvenate and ABG II Modular-Neck Hip Stems. Stryker could face more than 20k cases due to its hip implants, and cases involving revision surgery or Metallosis can result in a possible $500k settlement award.  Patients that need legal consultation or lawsuit funding on their Stryker case should inquire at:

While complications have arisen with Wright's Conserve line of MoM hip replacement systems and Profemur Z Stem no recall has been made yet, but with an 11% failure rate in 3 years there may be a legal case available. Legal-Bay is accepting applications for both lawsuit funding needs and free attorney consultation on the Wright Profemur and Wright Conserve Hip Implant products.

Biomet recently announced a $56MM settlement in 2014 due to its faulty M2a 38 and M2a Magnum Hip Replacement systems, with an average settlement of about $200k for cases with revision surgery.

With all the active hip replacement complications and recalls, Legal-Bay has been aggressively funding hip replacement cases at this time; however many lawsuits have yet to be filed. Clients that have not filed a lawsuit should be aware that the time to file a claim is now and we urge any possible victim of a hip defect to contact a Hip Lawyer or Hip Replacement Attorney immediately.

Legal-Bay's programs are non-recourse lawsuit cash advances, also known as case funding. None of the programs should be considered to be a lawsuit loan, lawsuit loans, pre-settlement loans, or a pre-settlement loan. To learn more about Legal Bay's hip funding programs, including DePuy, Stryker, Biomet, and Wright hips visit:
