Law Office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC Announces DePuy Hip Replacement Lawsuits May Be Barred After August of 201212:29 EDT Tuesday, June 05, 2012BALA CYNWYD, Pa., June 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential claims against DePuy Orthopedics ("DePuy") and its corporate parent Johnson & Johnson ("J&J" or the "Company") (NYSE- JNJ-News)  on behalf of individuals that received either an DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System or an DePuy ASR Hip Resurfacing System. DePuy hip replacement lawsuits may be barred after August of 2012 by state statute of limitations. The DePuy hip replacement recall began in August of 2010 and, as a result, time might be running out for some plaintiffs to file lawsuits against DePuy and J&J. State law governs personal injury cases and statutes of limitations differ throughout the United States. However, in situations like the DePuy recall, the limitations period is usually only two years, though some states' periods are longer. Those individuals who do not file their lawsuits in time may be unable to do so. This may leave individuals with no choice but to seek compensation through DePuy's reimbursement program.If you received either an ASR XL Acetabular System or an ASR Hip Resurfacing System, even if hip symptoms have not appeared, and you wish to discuss the legal ramifications of the upcoming statute of limitations, or have any questions, you may e-mail or call the law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC who will, without obligation or cost to you, attempt to answer your questions.  You may contact Jason L. Brodsky, Esquire or Evan J. Smith, Esquire at Brodsky & Smith, LLC, Two Bala Plaza, Suite 602, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004, by e-mail at investorrelations@brodsky-smith.com, or by calling toll free 877-LEGAL-90.SOURCE Brodsky & Smith, LLC
