Texas Jury Returns $498 Million Verdict Against Pinnacle Metal Hip Replacements

On March 17, 2016, a Texas federal jury returned a $498 million Pinnacle metal hip verdict against device makers Johnson & Johnson and DePuy Orthopaedics in favor of five separate plaintiffs who claimed their metal-on-metal Pinnacle hip implants were defective and caused them significant injury. The jury reached the verdict after hearing 37 days of testimony and deliberating for 4.5 days. Other patients may be eligible to seek compensation with the help of a metal hip replacement attorney.

“I had a medical negligence case where my bile duct was completely cut during gall bladder surgery. I have had several surgeries for corrections since then. Judy Massong was recommended to me by a friend, and it felt right to have an attorney with a medical background. I adore Judy; she is compassionate and caring and communicates well. I feel comfortable that she is a female, and I am so pleased with how she handled my case. She truly believes in what she’s doing, and she’s a great advocate for the victim.” Melody P.
