Attorney Altom M. Maglio was elected to lead a group focused on the ongoing litigation against Johnson & Johnson over the company’s Pinnacle and ASR metal on metal hip replacements.

The American Association for Justice (AAJ), the primary organization for plaintiffs’ trial lawyers in the United States, recently elected Mr. Maglio Chairman of the DePuy Metal on Metal Hip Implant Litigation Group. Mr. Maglio will help coordinate strategy for AAJ attorneys who are filing lawsuits against J&J’s metal on metal hips.

In 2008 Mr. Maglio filed the first lawsuit in the United States over a defective metal on metal hip replacement. He’s been involved at the highest levels of these cases ever since and brings that experience and knowledge of the medical device industry to the AAJ group.

Johnson & Johnson faces legal pressure over the Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant, despite a 2018 settlement deal. Over the past 10 years, J&J paid out billions of dollars to settle lawsuits involving the recalled DePuy ASR metal on metal hip system, which is similar to the Pinnacle hip.

Maglio’s own national law firm, Maglio Christopher & Toale, P.A. is aggressively pursuing Pinnacle metal on metal hip cases and filing Pinnacle MoM hip lawsuits across the U.S. on behalf of our clients.

The AAJ DePuy Metal on Metal Implant Litigation group will assist attorneys facing Pinnacle and ASR lawsuits with the resources and information they need to effectively represent their clients. 

mctlaw is a national medical product liability law firm with offices in Sarasota, FL, Seattle, WA, and Washington, DC.  It filed the first metal on metal (MoM) hip replacement lawsuit in the United States in 2008. Additionally, mctlaw’s highly experienced trial attorneys continue to litigate metal on metal hip replacement cases across the country. The Firm represents patients suffering from the effects of heavy metal poisoning from metal on metal hip replacements.
