Class Action Lawyer Network Depuy Pinnacle and ASR  Hip Replacement lawyers are filing lawsuits for victims of the DePuy ASR and DePuy Pinnacle hip replacements.

About the DePuy Pinnacle

Like the ASR XL, the Depuy Pinnacle is a metal on metal system that was designed to last at least 10-15 years, but now, orthopedic surgeons are reporting that these devices have been failing within one to two years of being implanted into their patients. Doctors in England are now reporting that 49 percent of DePuy ASR XL hip implants have failed after six years.
DePuy Hip Replacement lawyers are filing lawsuits for victims of the failed Depuy Pinnacle and DePuy ASR Hip Replacements.

Although the ASR and Pinnacle are both metal on metal systems, there are significant differences between the two :

 The ASR is a monoblock design whereas the Pinnacle uses a modular system.

The ASR cup is made of one solid piece of metal, whereas the Pinnacle has an outer shell.

The Pinnacle is designed in such a way that the surgeon has the option to place a metal, ceramic or polyethylene liner inside the metal outer cup.

Both of these have had problems and lawsuits have been filed.

DePuy Hip Replacement Lawsuit News, Hip Replacement Lawyers Filing Lawsuits

DePuy Hip Replacement Lawsuit Update

DePuy ASR lawsuit claims stemming from the 2010 DePuy hip recall continue to move forward in courts throughout the country . According to documents filed in California’s San Francisco Superior Court on April 25th, a Plaintiff who had been seeking an expedited trial of her DePuy hip lawsuit is voluntarily seeking dismissal of the case. (Tilman v. DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., et al., No. CGC11508806; Calif. Super. Ct., San Francisco).

This news is particularly interesting as when a case is voluntarily dismissed it is often an indication that the parties have come to an agreement. 

DePuy ASR Hip Lawsuits Lawyers Filing DePuy Lawsuits

Court records indicate that there are more than 10,000 DePuy ASR hip lawsuits currently pending in courts throughout the U.S. The DePuy hip recall was announced after the metal-on-metal hip implants were found to be failing in an unacceptably high number of patients. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) is now reviewing the safety of all metal hip implants, over fears that the devices can shed dangerous amounts of metal debris into patient’s bodies, leading to premature failure of the hips and other serious complications. In January, the agency proposed a new regulation that would make such devices ineligible for the agency’s 510(k) clearance process, which allowed all-metal hips like the ASR hip to gain FDA approval without first undergoing human clinical trials. The FDA also advised doctors to test metal hip implant patients for elevated metal ion levels if they present with symptoms of a failing hip implant.*

The majority of DePuy hip lawsuits have been filed in a multidistrict litigation now underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio. Court records indicate that the first trials in that litigation will begin this September. (In re: DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. ASR Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation – MDL 2197) Two lawsuits have already gone to trial at the state level, one of which ended with a California Superior Court jury awarding the Plaintiff more than $8 million in damages. (Kransky v. DePuy, BC456086, California Superior Court, Los Angeles County) However, the jury hearing a second trial in Illinois state court found for DePuy. (Strum v. DePuy, 2011-L-9352, Circuit Court of Cook County) According to an April 16th report from The New York Times, documents submitted as evidence in both of those trials indicated that Johnson & Johnson and its DePuy Orthopaedics unit knew that the ASR was flawed years before the recall was announced, but did not disclose this information to the public or the medical community.**

Earlier this month, DePuy Orthopaedics announced it would end sales of metal-on-metal hip implants, citing recent FDA actions and decreased demand for the products, according to the New York Times. The sales suspension includes a metal-on-metal version of the company’s DePuy Pinnacle hip replacement system, which is also the subject of lawsuits.

If you have a faulty DePuy and have had revision surgery or have been told you need revision surgery call and speak to a hip replacement lawyer today.

Januvia and Janumel Lawsuit Lawyers Update  MDL Formed

This is good news for patients on these medications  who are at risk for pancreas cancer.

The manufacturer of the drugs has agreed to move a growing number of injury claims to a special federal court in California*.

If the IUD has moved, gravitated out of position and you have a uterine or abdomen perforation you need to have your case reviewed immediatley by a Mirena IUD lawyer.

On  April 8, 2013 an order was  issued by the United States Judicial Panel ("USJP") on Multidistrict Litigation, MDL 2434* consolidating federal lawsuits alleging device migration and similar injuries caused by the Mirena IUD, manufactured by Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.The first case management order in the consolidated litigation is  setting May 17, 2013 at 10:30 a.m. as the date for an Initial Conference. In advance of this conference, the court is requiring that Position Statements be filed by counsel no later than May 11, 2013.

As Yiou can see the Mirena IUD lawsuits are moving along. The most serious Mirena injuries of perforation are the ones being considered for the lawsuits at this time.

Please see this checklist and advise
Do I Have A Mirena IUD Lawsuit?  Criteria That Must Be Met To File Your Mirena IUD Lawsuit.
The Mirena IUD causes many symptoms and complications however, in order to file a Mirena IUD lawsuit your Mirena IUD lawyer will be looking for the following:
1. Mirena  IUD must be the product implanted
2. You must have gone to  your 4-6 week follow up appointment  and  your doctor has confirmed that your Mirena IUD  was properly implanted.
3. The Mirena IUD has perforated your uterus or other organ. The Mirena must have moved out of position, gravitated and has become embedded  in your uterus or an organ and/or  there is a perforation injury.
 4. This usually means the Mirena , needs to be or will be Laparoscopic surgically removed.
A lot of Mirena women either don’t go to follow up appointment or by the time they go to follow up the Mirena has already moved. If that happens this becomes a med mal issue and not a products issue. The statute of limitations starts to run when you knew Mirena perforated an organ.
Of course, consult with your doctor if you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above

Symptoms of Abdomen Perforation:

  • Abdominal pain – severe
