HOUSTON, March 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company which operates lawsuitssettlementfunding.com, reported today that Johnson & Johnson and its DePuy unit were hit with a $500 million jury verdict over its Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implants. After two months of trial, a Texas federal jury found that "the Pinnacle hips were defectively designed, and that the companies failed to warn the public about their risks," according to an article in Reuters.

Now, J&J and its DePuy unit must pay $500 million to five plaintiffs who were injured by the Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implants. There are still approximately 8,000 cases pending in federal court over the Pinnacle devices.

Chris Janish, CEO, commented on the recent jury verdict, "As we have previously mentioned, the Pinnacle litigation was a tough one that J&J has been defending aggressively, as opposed to settling like they did on their ASR product. However, the jury has spoken loud and clear and our experts close to the situation believe that a global settlement of remaining cases with revisions makes sense for all parties, even though the hip manufacturer believes the product is safe."
