Depuy ASR: How many injured people are still out there?

  It is estimated that 30,000-40,000 people had Depuy ASR hip cups installed in the United States between 2003-2010.  To date, there have been roughly 3500-4000 claims filed.  As the two year anniversary of the recall quickly approaches, the court managing the litigation is preparing for a waive of filings.  However, even if the filings double in the next couple of months, many individuals could be unaware that their statute of limitations may be set to expire?

Just because you have a claim number with Broadspire does not mean that you claim has been preserved.  If you claim is not filed within the requisite statute of limitations, you could be precluded from filing a claim.
