DePuy Metal on Metal Hip Implant
For 10 years now, Johnson & Johnson's DePuy Orthopeadics has faced criticism and litigation over its metal on metal hip replacements causing heavy metal poisoning resulting in tissue death, muscle wasting, bone loss, and even worse injuries. In 2010, Johnson & Johnson recalled its metal on metal ASR hip replacement system worldwide, eventually paying billions of dollars to settle lawsuits involving that system. Since that time, increasing problems have been reported involving Johnson & Johnson's DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip replacement system. Although it was never recalled, in late 2018 a settlement of thousands of cases involving that system was announced. However, extensive litigation involving the Pinnacle metal on metal hip replacement system continues across the United States.
This litigation group supports AAJ members representing clients bringing claims against Johnson & Johnson for heavy metal poisoning and other injuries caused by the company's defective metal on metal hip replacements. Regular meetings will be held to share information, coordinate litigation strategy, and ultimately obtain justice on behalf of patients injured by DePuy metal on metal hip replacements.
