Yes, you may be able to sue DePuy Orthopaedics if you had the Pinnacle Hip Replacement System implanted and afterward suffered serious injury and/or complications. When a patient suffers significant complications or injuries such as pain, difficulty walking, swelling, numbness, grinding, clicking, or squeaking due to the defective DePuy artificial limb device, it can give rise to a defective medical device lawsuit.
In fact, due to DePuy’s failure to warn patients of the possible dangerous and defective nature of the Pinnacle hip replacement, they may be held liable for those who suffer complications.
These defective metal-on-metal hip implant lawsuits seek compensation for pain and suffering as well as payment of medical expenses incurred due to the defective implantable hip socket and cost of future surgeries if needed.
It is important that patients who have had DePuy Pinnacle Hip Replacement System are well aware of the serious complications that may arise in case they are experiencing similar pain.
