All through 2016, the attorneys at Kershaw, Cook & Talley provided video updates on the ongoing hip litigation surrounding the defective DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal implants.
In 2016, a trial began in Dallas, Texas on behalf of five plaintiffs. This case was unique, as the judge allowed all five plaintiffs to go to trial at the same time. All five plaintiffs had revision surgeries due to issues with metallosis from metal-on-metal hips.
The main argument in the case was that the company, DePuy, failed to properly test these implants, yet marketed them anyway.
