Good News for Potential Pinnacle Hip Lawsuit Settlements
A global settlement may come soon in Pinnacle hip implant lawsuits across the country. One of the attorneys working on the deal announced that both sides reached a tentative agreement. The deal would resolve most of the 10,000 lawsuits currently filed against Johnson & Johnson and the DePuy hip maker.
Federal Trial in Pinnacle Hip Cases Ends Suddenly
At the moment, there are no details about a potential settlement. However, a federal court in Dallas suddenly released a jury from a Pinnacle re-trial after news broke of a possible settlement. That retrial was in response to a 2016 verdict awarding five DePuy Pinnacle hip replacement patients a $500 million verdict against Johnson & Johnson. DePuy’s spokeswoman refused to comment on any settlement deal details. Lawsuits aimed at DePuy’s failed Pinnacle metal on metal hips began back in 2010. Since then, Johnson & Johnson faced several massive jury verdicts against them, including a $1 Billion verdict against the hip maker.
J&J Settles with US States for $120 Million
Two weeks ago J&J agreed to pay $120 million to states over deceptive marketing practices in how they sold the Pinnacle metal-on-metal hips. Attorney Generals from 46 states said DePuy misled consumers about how long their metal on metal hip implants would last.

We cannot thank you enough for the services your firm has provided for Marie and I in our time of need. I was very apprehensive in selecting a firm so far from our home, knowing that the process would occur without face-to-face contact. While working with your staff members, I was able to overcome the distance issue. I could not have chosen a finer firm near or far to represent us.

My first response is "Wow!" It has only been 11 months since I first heard of "SIRVA" and an HHS program that awarded compensation to its victims and only 7 months since MC&T accepted my case. Your news seems overwhelming, partly because I doubted the federal program would value my injuries, even if it accepted my claim as legitimate, and partly because I expected the process to be lengthy and drawn out. I feel that your efforts on my part made all the difference.
Thanks to you I am living comfortably in my own home with assistance. After my devastating GBS diagnosis from the flu vaccine six years ago, I didn't know what to do. Thank goodness I found you and your law firm. Thank you so much!

There are some good attorneys, some great and then there are the phenomenal ones, Alison is a phenomenal attorney... When she put together the demand letter she was able to explain what I had been through and how I had felt in ways that I thought no one would nor could ever understand. I want to thank your firm but personally thank all that had a hand in resolving my case.
