DePuy Pinnacle Lawsuits: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports on Latest Developments in Federal Pinnacle Hip Lawsuits

New York, NY (PRWEB) September 13, 2013

DePuy Pinnacle lawsuits ( involving a metal-on-metal version of the DePuy Pinnacle Hip Replacement System continue to move forward in the multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Texas, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to court documents, attorneys for plaintiffs have proposed a consolidated trial involving six Pinnacle hip lawsuits for the litigation’s first bellwether trial. According to a Memorandum submitted to the court on September 3, 2013, plaintiffs contend that a consolidated trial is “the most efficient use of time and resources.” (In re: DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. Pinnacle Hip Implant Product Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2244; N.D. Texas)

“Our Firm is representing hundreds of people in DePuy Pinnacle lawsuits, and we continue to hear from individuals who were allegedly injured by this metal-on-metal device. We look forward to the start of the first trial in this proceeding next year,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. Jeffrey S. Grand, a partner with the Firm, serves on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee for the federal litigation. Bernstein Liebhard LLP continues to offer free legal evaluations to alleged victims of serious complications associated with the all-metal DePuy Pinnacle Hip Replacement System.

Pinnacle Hip Lawsuits

According to court documents, at least 4,880 DePuy Pinnacle lawsuits are pending in the Northern District of Texas. All of the claims involve a version of the Pinnacle hip implant that utilizes the Ultamet liner. Plaintiffs allege that the device’s metal-on-metal design allows for wear that can cause it to shed dangerous amounts of metal ions into surrounding tissue and the blood stream. They further allege that the all-metal Pinnacle suffers from similar flaws that resulted in DePuy Othropaedics' worldwide recall of its ASR hip replacement line in August 2010, and question whether the Pinnacle should be recalled as well. The first trial in the federal Pinnacle hip litigation is scheduled to begin in September 2014.

The New York Times reported on May 17th that DePuy Orthopaedics had decided to phase out metal-on-metal hip implants, including the device named in Pinnacle hip lawsuits. In doing so, DePuy cited slowing sales, as well as recent actions by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) that would subject all-metal hips to greater regulatory security.* On January 17th, the FDA proposed a new regulation that would require the manufacturers of metal-on-metal hips currently on the market to conduct post-market safety studies of those products in order to keep selling them.

Victims of serious injuries allegedly caused by the metal-on-metal DePuy Pinnacle hip implant may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
