Metal-on-metal hip replacements such as the DePuy Pinnacle have been in the news* frequently because of hip lawsuits related to the devices’ alleged side effects, such as metal poisoning. The Rottenstein Law Group, a DePuy Pinnacle law firm, notes that pending Pinnacle lawsuits in federal courts are numbering almost 4,000, according to court documents in In re: DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. Pinnacle Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation – MDL No. 2244.
The nationwide lawsuits are managed as a consolidation called “multidistrict litigation” in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas. That the number of lawsuits has reached nearly 4,000 is not a surprise to Rottenstein Law Group Principal Rochelle Rottenstein.
“On a daily basis we receive calls from those who believe their metal-on-metal hip implants such as the DePuy Pinnacle have injured them,” Rottenstein said. “It is only appropriate that the issue be decided in the court system.”
