DePuy Pinnacle Hip Lawsuits Move Forward, as Federal Judge Denies Hospital Bid for $1000 Explant Fee, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports
Date:7/23/2014

New York, New York (PRWEB) July 23, 2014

Thousands of DePuy Pinnacle hip lawsuits (http://www.depuypinnacle-lawsuit.com/) continue to move forward in a federal multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Texas, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to an Order dated July 18th, U.S. District Judge Ed Kinkeade has denied a hospital’s bid for payment of a $1,000 fee for the preservation and return of one Plaintiff's explanted hip implant.

Among other things, the Order noted that there is no evidence that the Seattle, Washington hospital incurred any expenses in preserving the device, or complying with a subpoena to produce the implant, that could justify the charge. Judge Kinkeade also pointed out that the Plaintiff had shown that 80%-to-90% of hospitals charge nothing to return explanted devices. (Russell v. DePuy Orthopaedics Inc., et al., No. 13-3518)

“Our Firm is representing numerous clients who have filed Pinnacle hip lawsuits in this proceeding. As such, we regularly deal with issues concerning the preservation of our clients’ explants and are very pleased with the results of this order,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices, including clients in DePuy Pinnacle lawsuits. The Firm continues to offer free legal evaluations to alleged victims of serious complications associated with a metal-on-metal version of the Pinnacle Hip Replacement System.

DePuy Pinnacle Hip Lawsuits
Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is a member of the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in the federal litigation underway in Texas. Court documents indicate more than 6,400 Pinnacle hip replacement lawsuits have been filed in the proceeding on behalf of plaintiffs who were allegedly injured by the metal-on-metal version of the hip implant system that utilizes the Ultamet liner. The litigation’s first trial is scheduled to begin in September 2014. (In re: DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. Pinnacle Hip Implant Product Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2244)

In May 2013, Johnson & Johnson and DePuy Orthopaedics announced that they would cease the sale of metal-on-metal hip implants, including the device involved in Pinnacle hip lawsuits. The companies’ announcement came in the wake of an alert issued by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in January 2013, which warned that all-metal hips were more likely to fail early than those made of other materials. The agency also revealed that it was considering new rules that would subject the all-metal hips to greater regulatory oversight.*

Individuals who were allegedly injured by the metal-on-metal Pinnacle hip implant may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
