Johnson & Johnson payout: A big win for patient rights in India

The J&J compensation could also open up the insurance sector for product liability in India.

Michael Kelly, attorney for plaintiff Loren Kransky, holds up an ASR XL hip implant in his opening statement to the jury. In the biggest ever payout for disability not leading to death, the government has directed the multinational major Johnson & Johnson (J&J ) to pay up to ₹1.2 crore each along with an additional ₹10 lakh for “non pecuniary” losses as compensation to patients who were sold faulty hip implants between 2006 and 2010.
