The Doyle Law Firm is now accepting clients who had hip replacement implants manufactured by DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., identified as the DePuy Pinnacle Metal-On-Metal Acetabluar Cup System installed during hip replacement surgery. DePuy's faulty design in the Pinnacle device has caused patients to undergo a second "revision" surgery to correct the problems. We are evaluating hip replacement complications in the DePuy implant devices and we've begun filing lawsuits nationwide. If you or someone you know has experienced severe pain or other injuries after the implantation of a DePuy Pinnacle® hip replacement device, email attorney Jimmy Doyle or call us at (205) 533-9500 for a free consultation.

DePuy Pinnacle Hip Replacement Attorneys

Doyle Law is reviewing potential hip replacement lawsuits for people that received the DePuy PINNACLE® Modular Hip Replacement System with metal insert/ liner and experienced pain or other symptoms that led to a second hip replacement surgery. The hip replacement devices are manufactured by DePuy Orthopaedics, a division of Johnson & Johnson Services, Inc., and the total hip replacement system include the cup portion of a replacement hip.

DePuy Pinnacle Lawsuits

The United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation chose to centralize all products liability cases involving the Pinnacle hip devices in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas.

There are now hundreds of Pinnacle lawsuits filed and more are sure to come. An MDL benefits all parties involved through the open sharing of pretrial disclosures, the elimination of inconstant pretrial rulings, and a more streamlined litigation process. MDL status differs from class action status because MDL plaintiffs maintain individual lawsuits and trials, which increases their chances of obtaining an amount of compensation that corresponds directly with their damages.

Ongoing Concerns with DePuy Pinnacle Implants

Metal-on-metal devices were developed to add durability as an alternative to the typical plastic device. Latest reports claim that over 1,300 complaints have been received by the FDA concerning the DePuy Pinnacle hip replacement. Even though a significant amount of these complaints focus on the device loosening prematurely, additional news from the New York times claims that such metal-on-metal devices, like the Pinnacle system, increase the risk of metal toxicity causing a number of adverse affects in recipients.

In January, DePuy announced that it had set aside nearly a billion dollars for ASR lawsuits. This amount will surely increase should the Pinnacle lawsuits be added to existing DePuy MDL. If you feel your quality of life has been affected by a defective artificial hip replacement device, do not hesitate to email attorney Jimmy Doyle or call us at (205) 533-9500 for a free consultation.

Metal-On-Metal Artificial Hip Problems

Problems linked to the DePuy Pinnacle Artificial Hip Implants include:

  • Blood test results that show high levels of chromium and cobalt caused by metal debris
  • Clicking, popping or grinding in the area of the hip implant
  • Device failure from loosening that results from bone loss
  • Dislocation (the two parts of the implant move against one another and become misaligned)
  • Fracture (bone around the implant breaking)
  • Loosening in the hip joint (implant fails to stay attached to the bone in the correct position)
  • Metal debris (component parts move together resulting in flecks of metal shavings that spread around the area surrounding the implant and destroy soft bone and tissue)
  • Problems involving walking, pain, swelling or discomfort in the hip area
  • Any of the above symptoms or related conditions that result in revision surgery to remove a Depuy hip device

If you have experienced serious hip replacement side effects or required additional surgery after being implanted with a DePuy Pinnacle Artificial Hip Replacement System, you may have grounds for a hip replacement lawsuit.
