DePuy Pinnacle Lawsuit Center
The Pinnacle system is currently under scrutiny. You could have a claim against the company if you’ve suffered as a result of the failure of a replacement hip device you received.
If you received a DePuy Pinnacle device—whether you’re in pain or not… whether your doctor has told you that you need “revision” surgery or not—you might be entitled to compensation (including for harms you don’t even know yet that you’ve suffered). Time to sue DePuy is not limited, so call RLG today.
If you’ve needed revision surgery or suffered the symptoms of metal toxicity because of your hip replacement device, then you might be entitled to compensation for your injuries—including medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
In order to determine the strength of your case and the likelihood that you will collect from DePuy for the harm you have suffered, you will need to speak to a legal professional.
DePuy Orthopaedics’s “Pinnacle” is a total hip replacement system intended to be better for younger recipients… but when implanted with a metal liner, the Pinnacle might cause some unfortunate side effects.
Metal components were advertised as more durable. But then researchers discovered that metal components shed toxic particles into the bloodstreams of recipients. And the devices were coming loose just years after implantation.
DePuy’s Pinnacle was marketed to younger patients who sought to maintain an active lifestyle after surgery. But recipients are complaining about the Pinnacle’s apparent propensity to loosen just a few years after implantation.
In March 2010, the New York Times reported on metal-on-metal hip replacement systems. According to researchers, these systems cause patients to develop abnormally high concentrations of heavy metals in the bloodstream.
Although there is no way to predict the amount of money that one will receive in a successful lawsuit without a close examination of the facts, if you have been harmed one thing is for certain: You are entitled to restitution for your injuries.
