“Our Firm is representing hundreds of Pinnacle hip lawsuit plaintiffs in the federal litigation, and we continue to hear from others who were allegedly injured by a metal-on-metal version of this hip replacement system. We are not at all surprised that new cases are being filed in this proceeding on a regular basis,” says Sandy A. Liebhard, a partner with Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm continues to offer free legal evaluations to individuals who were allegedly harmed by the all-metal Pinnacle hip device.
DePuy Pinnacle Hip Litigation
According to court documents, all of the claims pending in the Northern District of Texas were filed on behalf of individuals who allegedly experience chronic pain, metallosis, pseudotumor formation, premature device failure and other serious complications due to the metal-on-metal version of the Pinnacle hip, which utilizes the Ultamet Liner. The lawsuits claim that this all-metal configuration results in the accumulation of toxic metal debris in the tissue surrounding the implant, as well as the blood stream. Plaintiffs further allege that DePuy Orthopaedics failed to adequately test the metal-on-metal Pinnacle hip to ensure its safety and effectiveness, and concealed its alleged defects from patients and the medical community.
Court records indicate that the federal litigation underway in Texas was established in March 2011. The Court is currently in the process of selecting a Pinnacle lawsuit for its second bellwether trial. The first trial concluded last October with a verdict for the defense. (Case No. 11-cv-3590)
