CLEVELAND, June 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, disclosed today a new lawsuit cash advance program for clients with potential settlements in DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. litigations. In a late 2013 press release by parent company Johnson & Johnson and DePuy executives, the company stated "The U.S. settlement is valued at approximately $2.5 billion, based on an estimate of 8,000 patients participating in the program". The estimated 8,000 patients who filed against DePuy were facing ASR™ XL Acetabular Hip System or ASR™ Hip Resurfacing System complications and experienced pain, inflammation, infection to surrounding internal areas and tissue, and Metallosis. J&J, as well as the plaintiff's attorneys, have now announced that enough clients have opted-in for the settlement and that the settlement payments will be processed in the next few months.

Patty Kirby, COO/Head of Client Relations commented on the news, "Although the ASR litigation in part is winding down, there still remains many DePuy ASR cases not in the settlement yet and there are Pinnacle Hip cases that we are still working on. Additionally, we are now providing refinancing opportunities with our new ASR program with exceptional rates for plaintiffs who need money before their settlement amount is received, regardless if they have an advance with another lawsuit funding company." 

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 ASR and Pinnacle hips visit:

Legal-Bay is also aggressively funding Stryker Rejuvenate and ABGII hips cases as well as Biomet and Wright Profemur cases.
