DePuy Pinnacle Lawsuits Stayed in Federal Litigation Pending Completion of First Bellwether Trials, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports
Date:10/1/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) October 01, 2013

DePuy Pinnacle lawsuits (http://www.consumerinjurylawyers.com/depuy-pinnacle/lawsuit) involving a metal-on-metal version of the DePuy Pinnacle Hip Replacement System continue to move towards trial in a multidistrict litigation now underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Texas, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to an Order dated September 30, 2013, the Court has stayed all Pinnacle hip lawsuits filed in the proceeding, with the exception of those selected for its bellwether trials, pending the completion of those trials. Court documents indicate that federal Pinnacle hip lawsuits will begin going before juries in September 2014. (In re: DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. Pinnacle Hip Implant Product Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2244; N.D. Texas)

“Our Firm is looking forward to the commencement of bellwether trials in this litigation, as it is likely that their outcomes will provide some insight into how juries might rule in similar DePuy Pinnacle lawsuits,” 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 federally-filed Pinnacle hip lawsuits. 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, the DePuy Pinnacle hip at the center of the federal litigation underway in Texas is a metal-on-metal device that utilizes the Ultamet liner. Plaintiffs in Pinnacle hip lawsuits claim that this design allows the hip to shed dangerous amounts of toxic metal debris into a recipient’s tissue and the blood stream, resulting in metallosis, pain, swelling, premature failure of the implant, and need for revision surgery. Plaintiffs also assert that the all-metal Pinnacle is similar in design to the ASR hip, which DePuy Orthopaedics recalled in 2010. They question whether or not this version of the Pinnacle should have been removed from the market as well. Court records indicate that more than 4,800 DePuy Pinnacle lawsuits are now pending in the federal litigation.

On May 17th, The New York Times reported that DePuy Orthopaedics had decided to phase out sales of all-metal hips, including the metal-on-metal version of the Pinnacle, due in part to the recent actions taken by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA).* DePuy’s decision followed an FDA announcement in January regarding a new regulatory proposal that, if adopted, 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 complications allegedly caused by the metal-on-metal DePuy Pinnacle hip may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
