Woman with Bilateral DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant Alleges Metal Hips are Flawed in Lawsuit Filed by Parker Waichman LLP
Date:6/5/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) June 05, 2013

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of victims injured by defective medical devices, has filed a lawsuit on behalf of a woman implanted with two DePuy Pinnacle hips. The lawsuit was filed on March 25th in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas (Case No. 3:13-cv-01247-K) as part of the DePuy Pinnacle multidistrict litigation (MDL No. 3:11-md-02244). DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. and Johnson & Johnson are the Defendants.

According to the Complaint, the Plaintiff was implanted with a Pinnacle hip on her left side in January 2007, and then had another Pinnacle hip implanted on her right side in December 2008. The lawsuit alleges that the implants caused complications, including extreme pain, weakness and elevated chromium and cobalt levels in the woman’s bloodstream. The symptoms were said to have grown so severe that she needed to undergo a revision surgery to correct the problems. Allegedly, the Defendants were aware of the potential for these risks but failed to disclose them to the Plaintiff, her doctor or the public. The Plaintiff is suing for, among other things, pain and suffering, emotional distress and economic loss due to lost wages and medical expenses.

The lawsuit alleges that the Pinnacle is flawed because the metal-on-metal design causes the shedding of chromium and cobalt particles, which are then released into the body. On January 17 of this year, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a Safety Alert that acknowledged these risks, issuing new guidelines for all-metal hip patients. The agency advised that those with implants undergo physical exams, diagnostics imaging and metal-ion testing when necessary. In that same alert, the FDA also propose
