Although the FDA has not announced a DePuy Pinnacle recall, they've received nearly 1,300 reports of complications, and patients experiencing DePuy Pinnacle problems may still have legal recourse.

Although every case is different, victims of defective hip implants recovered $500 million dollars in a similar suit. While a DePuy Pinnacle recall has not yet been issued, patients who have been implanted with the hip replacement system have reported a number of DePuy Pinnacle problems, including unexplained hip pain and hip implant failure, and allege that the company failed to warn them of these potential problems. Although the FDA has not announced a DePuy Pinnacle recall, patients experiencing DePuy Pinnacle problems may still have legal recourse.

Complaints

DePuy Orthopaedics has received numerous complaints regarding the metal-on-metal Pinnacle Acetabular Cup System, though it has not issued a Pinnacle hip recall as of yet. The company maintains that there is no defect in the design of the Pinnacle hip replacement, though one DePuy Pinnacle lawsuit alleges that the company is concealing the defect and has misrepresented that the hip replacement is a safe and effective medical device.

The following are among the potential DePuy Pinnacle problems when the device is used with a metal liner:

  • Unexplained hip pain
  • Difficulty walking or standing
  • Trouble with weight bearing
  • Clicking or snapping noise
  • Loosening of the DePuy Pinnacle hip replacement
  • Pinnacle hip implant failure
  • Need for hip replacement revision surgery
  • Metallosis (metal poisoning)

Like the ASR hip replacements included in the 2010 DePuy hip implant recall, this Pinnacle system can be used with metal-on-metal components. Reportedly,metal-on-metal hip devices can wear, releasing microscopic particles into the patient’s body.

Some patients experiencing DePuy Pinnacle problems have reported severe inflammatory reactions or metal poisoning due to high levels of cobalt and chromium in their systems. Elevated levels of chromium and cobalt have been linked to the metal debris released by the metal-on-metal Pinnacle hip replacements. Metal poisoning symptoms in the patients were commonly associated with other problems, such as trouble walking, pain and swelling. This can also cause tissue and muscle damage, causing hip implant failure.

Jerri
Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
