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.

“My daughter was injured during birth when a catheter punctured my womb. She suffered from a loss of blood, and several other mistakes were made before she was finally resuscitated. My mother, who is a nurse, suggested Judy Massong. With her as my attorney, I felt I was in the most experienced hands. With Judy's help, we settled twice, once with the hospital and again with the medical device manufacturer. Judy is as strong as a bulldog, and she always made it her goal to keep us informed and help us find the resolution we needed as a family. We have worked hard on my daughter’s recovery, and as challenging as it can be, she is an affectionate, loving, social, bright little girl.” Julie L.
