The DePuy Pinnacle Hip Replacement could cause life-threatening side effects, such as metal poisoning (metallosis). This dangerous adverse side effect occurs when friction between metal hip implant components causes metal ions to flake off into the bloodstream. This could cause several neurological problems, including emotional disturbances, dizziness and headaches. Other adverse side effects include premature loosening of the device and swelling and inflammation, which could cause intense pain and suffering.
DePuy Pinnacle Lawsuits Are Increasing Across the Nation
There are about 4,000 Pinnacle Lawsuits pending in a multidistrict litigation in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas as of July 2013. There have not been any reported settlements for DePuy’s Pinnacle, but another DePuy metal-on-metal hip implant, the ASR, has been the subject of multimillion dollar verdicts in favor of plaintiffs.
