DePuy Hip Replacement Lawsuit News: California Judge Allows DePuy ASR Lawsuit Plaintiffs to Add Pinnacle Hip Claims
Date:7/30/2013

86, California Superior Court, Los Angeles County)

A second multidistrict litigation for all federally-filed claims involving the all-metal Pinnacle hip has been established in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Texas. Jeffrey S. Grand, a partner with Bernstein Liebhard LLP, serves on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee for the federal DePuy Pinnacle litigation. (In re: DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. Pinnacle Hip Implant Product Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2244; N.D. Texas)

According to court documents, plaintiffs with claims pending in both litigations allege the metal-on-metal hips have a propensity to shed dangerous amounts of metal debris, leading to adverse local tissue reactions and premature device failure. Plaintiffs in DePuy Pinnacle hip replacement lawsuits further allege the all-metal version of the device shares many of the same design defects that led to the recall of the ASR in August 2010.

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has been investigating metal-on-metal hip replacements since February 2011. In January 2013, the FDA advised all patients fitted with metal-on-metal hips to undergo metal ion testing if they were experiencing signs or symptoms of device failure. The agency has also proposed new rules that would subject all-metal hips to greater regulatory scrutiny.* On May 17th the New York Times reported that DePuy Orthopaedics had decided to phase out sales of metal-on-metal hip implants, including the all-metal Pinnacle, in part due to recent FDA actions.*

Hip implant recipients who suffered serious complications allegedly due to the DePuy Pinnacle or ASR hip may be entitled to compensation for their medical care, pain and suffering, and other damages. '/>"/>
