We have resolved many hip claims including Depuy ASR, Stryker Rejuvenate, Biomet Magnum and many remain pending such as DePuy Pinnacle and Wright Conserve. Here are some general updates to pass along and please give us a call to talk about your case specifically.
For Settled Cases: Enhanced Award (Part B) administration is scheduled to begin in March. We anticipate the detail of the review and a significant amount of challenges to the determinations may make this a timely process.
For Unresolved Cases: There have been talks related to settling revised cases that were not eligible under the original settlement agreement. These talks are continuing. Read more about it here. For cases that are un-revised the prospects of settlement remain unlikely. It is important that you keep us updated with current health updates. For cases that were eligible for settlement and decided not to opt in, the Miller Firm is pursuing trial settings.
The Global Settlement offer for revised cases has been announced and we will be reaching out to eligible clients with details on the offer. The deadline to enroll in the settlement in March 2nd.
For Settled Cases: We are continuing to work with Garretson to administer settlements including the complicated process of medical liens. Please contact our office for specific updates.

All cases remain unresolved and the parties are working to set the date for the second trial in the Texas MDL.
