Depuy Metal On Metal Hip Implants

In addition to a mounting number of DePuy ASR lawsuits filed in recent months over their recalled metal-on-metal hip replacement, DePuy Orthopaedics and Johnson & Johnson are now facing lawsuits over their DePuy Pinnacle Ultamet metal-on-metal hip replacement, which also allegedly has design defects that may make it prone to early failure.

The DePuy Pinnacle Ultamet hip is a different metal-on-metal hip replacement product made by the Johnson & Johnson and DePuy Orthopaedics, which recent lawsuits now allege has similar design defects. As a result, the device is loosening and in some cases causing metal poisoning
requiring revision surgery.

On December 10, 2010, a DePuy Pinnacle hip replacement lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington by David Cornis and his wife, Judith. According to the complaint, Cornis had a hip replacement in 2007 where a DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip was used. Since then, he indicates that he has had to undergo at least six surgeries to address problems caused by the metal poisoning from his DePuy Pinnacle hip.

DePuy Company Release Letter

If you or a loved one have received a letter from DePuy Orthopaedics or Johnson & Johnson regarding your hip replacement surgery, it is important to contact an attorney to review your case first, before seeing a doctor or signing any documents, releases, or waivers from the company. For information about your legal options, please call 1.800.856.6405 or fill out a form on this page.

At this time, Johnson & Johnson and DePuy may be contacting patients who received the Pinnacle Ultamet hip replacement systems offering to pay some medical expenses if patients sign a waiver of liability. However, signing the release letter may actually prevent victims from being able to seek compensation from the companies should complications arise in the future.

The compensation also may not cover expenses incurred after the surgery, such as diagnostic testing procedures (blood tests, x-rays, ultrasounds), lost wages, loss of earning capacity, pain, suffering, and future medical expenses.

By submitting the form on this page, you will be able to discuss your case with a hip implant attorney and review your legal rights.
