Class action litigation is pending in the United States against Depuy International Ltd. for their design and failure to warn patients using their Pinnacle Hip Replacement System. Thousands of Plaintiff’s are filing suit for medical complications and damage associated with the device. The litigations stem from the metal-on-metal design used on the hip system and the major health complications it has caused. Specifically, patients have experienced trouble:
- Overall pain and discomfort
Patients have undergone corrective surgery to remove the device, thereby exposing further damage such as tissue erosion, severe scar tissue and permanent damage to the hip socket. Research has shown that the metal released into the human body is unsafe and could cause dizziness, confusion and memory loss. If you or someone you love is suffering, do not wait to seek legal help. With the right personal injury attorney on your side, you can file a claim for compensation.
