HOUSTON, March 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- MT Services LLC, a Lawsuit Settlement News Reporting Company which operates lawsuitsettlementnews.com, reported today that a federal jury in Texas recently reached a $500 million verdict against Johnson & Johnson and its DePuy unit over their Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implants. According to an article in Reuters, after two months of trial, the Texas federal jury found that "the Pinnacle hips were defectively designed, and that the companies failed to warn the public about their risks."
J&J and its DePuy unit were ordered to pay the $500 million to five plaintiffs who claim they were injured by the Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implants. Approximately 8,000 cases are still pending in federal court over the Pinnacle devices.
Victims who may have elevated chromium and cobalt levels in their blood, have required a revision surgery, or have had issues with their Pinnacle hip are encouraged to seek legal counsel immediately.
Chris Janish, CEO of MTS, commented on the recent jury verdict, "The Pinnacle hip jury verdict is a substantial award for the five plaintiffs who were injured, and we encourage anyone who has sustained injuries or has required a revision surgery to seek legal counsel as well."
