DePuy Pinnacle Lawsuit Allegations
DePuy Pinnacle lawsuits have made a number of allegations regarding the metal-on-metal hip replacement systems. These lawsuits allege that the plaintiffs in these cases were injured from the hip replacements, reporting metal poisoning among their problems. According to the DePuy Pinnacle lawsuits, design defects with the hip replacements allow tiny metal particles to be released into the bloodstream and tissues as the metal components rub against each other. This may increase the risk of metal poisoning and lead to implant failure.
