Although DePuy and Johnson & Johnson recalled the DePuy ASR hip implant, later settling with more than 11,000 plaintiffs who claimed they were injured by the ASR, so far, despite more than 9,000 DePuy Pinnacle hip implant lawsuits, the company has refused to recall the Pinnacle. The DePuy Pinnacle hip claims saw major plaintiff success in 2016—a momentum that has continued into 2017...
According to court documents, over 5,600 DePuy Pinnacle lawsuits are pending in an MDL which is currently underway in the Northern District of Texas, U.S. District Court. These lawsuits allege injury from the metal-on-metal version of the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant which utilizes the Ultamet metal-on-metal Pinnacle liner. Plaintiffs are questioning whether the DePuy Pinnacle should have been recalled along with the DePuy ASR, which was recalled in August, 2010. The first federal trials for the Pinnacle are expected to begin in September, 2014.
