Update: Pinnacle Hip Litigation

Plaintiffs that have filed suit after receiving a DePuy Pinnacle hip are waiting for the second “bellwether,” or test trial, to be scheduled.

In the first bellwether trial, a Texas jury found in favor of DePuy. The Plaintiff in that case, however, had a medical history not necessarily representative of the majority of other claimants. DePuy argued that the Plaintiff’s complications were a result of the placement of the implant, as opposed to the design of the hip.

The DePuy Pinnacle hip is a metal-on-metal hip, very similar to the DePuy ASR hip. DePuy, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, has already settled thousands of claims with Plaintiffs that received the ASR implant.

If you or someone you know received a DePuy Pinnacle him implant, please email or give us a call at 512-499-8900.
