DePuy Pinnacle Trial Verdict and Your Case

Hi, I  am Stuart Talley.  I am  the partner responsible for the DePuy Pinnacle hip litigation.  I am doing this video today to provide an update  after receiving  lots of calls from people asking, “What does the verdict  in the DePuy Pinnacle Trial impact our claim?”

This  verdict puts  a lot of pressure on DePuy  and Johnson & Johnson to settle the pending cases  in the MDL.  There are approximately  8,000 people who have lawsuits on file. Some of these individuals have undergone revision surgery, and others have not.

In the past,  DePuy  took the position of  settling cases for people who have had revision surgery such as with the DePuy ASR.   DePuy’s mindset with the  Pinnacle is that they would never settle a case.  But this verdict  really puts pressure on them to take action.

I assume this verdict will  renew  settlement discussions.  I don’t think there have been  settlement  discussions at this point. Hopefully, this will bring DePuy to the table  to discuss possible resolutions  for these cases.  One thing to consider,  even if DePuy thinks they can win  95%  of these cases,  5 out  of 100  cases with  a $500  million dollar  verdict  could bankrupt this company.  So,  the  problem with this situation from DePuy’s standpoint is there are many cases they need to deal with.

If you have a  Pinnacle hip, I would  suggest you  give us a call especially if you do not have a case on file. It’s important to have a case on file to protect your legal rights  and to ensure you can participate in a settlement, should one occur down the road.
