DePuy Pinnacle Trial Updates
The Latest News from Our Sacramento Injury Lawyers
Kershaw, Cook & Talley is currently representing clients across the country who have suffered harm as a result of DePuy Pinnacle® metal-on-metal hip implants. This hip replacement system has been linked to serious side effects and the need for revision surgery, which carries its own risk of complications. Pain, limited mobility, infection, and device malfunction or failure are all potential side effects linked to metal-on-metal hip implant systems like the Pinnacle®.
Thousands of cases are currently pending against DePuy for injuries caused by and linked to its Pinnacle® hip replacement system. The trial has proven to be long and arduous, as expected against a manufacturing giant such as Johnson & Johnson, which acquired DePuy in 1998.
Our Sacramento injury lawyers are working diligently to make sure our clients’ interests are being protected, against claims by DePuy that the Pinnacle® system was safe to use because it was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). We believe this argument is inapplicable, due to the fact that manufacturers can get medical devices, like hip implants, approved if they can prove that their design is similar to a product already on the market. FDA approval does not mean that the product is necessarily safe to use, only that it is similar to an already-approved device. DePuy still holds the responsibility to test its hip replacement systems to ensure they are safe for patients.
