File Your DePuy Pinnacle Lawsuit Today

 

The U.S. District Judge, Ed Kinkeade of the Northern District of Texas,  has granted the request to stay most of the pending DePuy Pinnacle lawsuits in multidistrict litigation  No. 2244. The stay will, most likely, remain in effect until the conclusion of the bellwether trials.  The trials are expected to begin in September 2014.

The Bellwether Trials Set The Tone Of Future Hip Replacement Settlements

Currently, there are more than 4,800 DePuy Pinnacle lawsuits pending in MDL No. 2244.

The Pinnacle Lawsuits Are  Similar to ASR hip implants

Many recipients claim that the implant devices have loosened, causing early failure of the device. There have also been many lawsuits for metallosis, or heavy metal poisoning. When the metal components of the hip devices rub against each other, the friction releases metal ions into the blood stream.

Metallosis can cause inflammation, tissue necrosis, and bone deterioration.

Complications In The Lawsuits

  •  Bone fractures,
  • Implant dislocation,
  • Metallosis
