Jonson and Johnson Lawsuit: Depuy's Pinnacle Hip Replacement System

A federal appellate court in Texas has refused to stop Johnson and Johnson lawsuit trials regarding metal-on-metal hip replacement failures.

The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals earlier this month refused to prevent lawsuits from continuing after being asked to do so by Johnson and Johnson, parent company of Depuy Orthopaedics Inc., the manufacturer of these hip replacement systems, at issue in the current bellwether trials.

The appeal came on the heels of a Texas jury's more than $500 million verdict that held the companies responsible for the defective equipment, DePuy's "Pinnacle" hip replacement system. The Pinnacle system has since been discontinued.

So-called "bellwether" trials are in the judicial pipeline, and Johnson & Johnson officials wanted to halt those Johnson and Johnson lawsuit trials, which could streamline the process for future cases involving the defective equipment. Bellwether trials consolidate many aspects of fact-finding into one case that the parties agree to use in similar cases going forward.

Attorney Lisa G. Douglas of North Little Rock said large company's such as Johnson & Johnson are having a more difficult time avoiding liability for their faulty products.

"As consumers learn more about their rights and the options available to them, it is becoming harder and harder for global companies such as Johnson & Johnson to escape liability for these defective metal hip replacements," she explained. "Consumers today better understand that they can stand up to the Big Guy and have their day in court."

Metal-on-metal hip replacement systems have come under fire in recent years as the systems have failed more quickly than systems made of ceramic or other materials. The metal replacements also have contributed to various ailments after metal shavings made their way into recipients' bloodstream. Some of these problems have been highlighted in the recent Johnson and Johnson lawsuit.

Hip replacement surgeries have become much more common in recent years, and for a time, metal-on-metal systems were the most popular variety used. However, their high failure rate has resulted in many patients requiring corrective surgery. Many metal-on-metal systems are no longer in use, and the medical community has shifted toward hip replacements made of non-metal components.
