The hip implant recovery team of Parker McDonald, P.C. and Harrison Davis Steakley Morrison, P.C. is proud to announce that Steve Harrison has been appointed to the Plaintiff’s Steering Committee In re: DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. Pinnacle Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation (MDL Docket No. 2244) on January 9, 2012. Mr. Harrison was appointed by the Honorable Judge James E. Kinkeade, who is presiding over the litigation in the United States District Court of the Northern District of Texas.
Since the Pinnacle MDL inception more than a hundred lawsuits have been filed against healthcare giant, Johnson & Johnson, and its subsidiary DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. DePuy Pinnacle hip implant lawsuits were ordered to be centralized in the Northern District of Texas in May of 2011. The lawsuits involved raise the questions of whether the Pinnacle Acetabular System, a device used in hip replacement surgery, was defectively designed and/or manufactured and whether defendants failed to provide adequate warnings concerning the device. These implants have been sold nationwide since their release into the market in 2002.
Mr. Harrison has extensive experience in mass tort litigation and has been a trial lawyer for thirty-five years. Steve is also the President of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association.
The hip implant recovery team of Parker McDonald and Harrison Davis Steakley Morrison has decades of experience representing victims of defective medical devices and pharmaceuticals. The firms currently represent hundreds of DePuy hip implant patients across the country and have established http://www.hipimplantrecovery.com to provide the latest information for concerned hip implant patients and their families.
