Pinnacle Hip Implant Group Action Underway in UK
In one of the largest product liability group actions ever heard in the UK, hundreds of plaintiffs are claiming they received a faulty metal-on-metal hip implant manufactured by DePuy. The 312 patients who received the Pinnacle Ultamet hip joint claim that they needed revision surgery when their device released metal particles into the bloodstream and caused tissue damage and severe pain. According to the BBC, there are hundreds of other metal-on-metal claims against several other manufacturers that are said to be on hold pending the outcome of the Pinnacle Ultamet trial, which is expected to last until the end of January 2018.
