Settlement Discussions in the Works for Defective Hip Cases?

Our office represents several families that were greatly impacted by the DePuy Metal on Metal Hip Recall. Currently there are about 11,000 hip lawsuits pending. Many of the cases involve hip patients right here in Tennessee. As the cases have progressed we have learned more about the alleged problems with these hips and how a jury may view these cases. Currently, two cases have gone to trial and several others are scheduled. The first hip recall case resulted in a verdict of several million dollars. There has also been a recent confidential settlement of another case that was about to go to trial. Is this a good sign that a global settlement may be in the works. Many of us believe so.

I recently gave an interview on the current state of the hip recall litigation. You can watch the interview below:

What Our Clients Say
★★★★★
When my mother was neglected in a nursing home I was referred to The Higgins Firm for help. They did a great job representing my family and obtained a significant settlement. Hopefully, this will keep someone else's parent from being mistreated in the future. Angie S.
★★★★★
I have a large collection practice and don't handle personal injury cases. Instead of simply declining a case, I referred it to The Higgins Firm. They handled everything. My client got a large recovery and I got a large co-counsel fee. The client and I were both very happy. Attorney Bo Melton
★★★★★
The best injury lawyers in Nashville. They represented my son in a car accident case and did an awesome job. James D.
