Johnson & Johnson’s Pinnacle Hip Replacement System

There are more than 8,000 lawsuits pending against Johnson & Johnson’s Pinnacle Hip Replacement System.

On March 18, 2016, following a two-month federal jury trial, the jury found that the Pinnacle Hip Replacement System was defectively designed.  The jury also found that Johnson & Johnson failed to warn the public about the risks of Pinnacle Hip Replacement System.

The jury awarded $140 million in compensatory damages and $360 million in punitive damages.

Problems with Pinnacle Hip Replacement System

Johnson & Johnson owns a company named DePuy. DePuy manufactured the Pinnacle Hip Replacement System. Complications involving the Pinnacle Hip Replacement System include:

  • Pieces of the metal breaking loose in the body
  • The metal pieces sliding out of joint or loosening
  • Bone fracturing
  • Necrosis of the tissues around the implant

In many cases, people who received the Pinnacle Hip Replacement System needed revision surgery to correct the problem, or a new hip.

This process can be very painful, and is not always covered by insurance. Many people pay for another surgical procedure that should not have been necessary.
