The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation recently announced that they will consolidate at least 57 product liability lawsuit filed against Johnson & Johnson subsidiary DePuy Orthopaedics for their Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip replacements in the U.S. District Court for Northern Texas.
The Judicial Panel decided to consolidate the cases and possibly more due to the fact that they were all made on similar grounds. The Pinnacle hip implant was produced and recalled before the DePuy ASR implant. Many ASR hip implant lawsuits have been consolidated in the U.S. District Court for Northern Ohio. Approximately 96,000 patients were affected by the ASR hip implant recall.
If you or someone you know has been affected by the DePuy ASR recall, contact the DePuy hip implant defect attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-761-3187 to learn more about filing a product liability lawsuit.
