Johnson & Johnson and its division, DePuy Orthopedics, was hit with a $498 million dollar verdict today in federal court in Dallas Texas, for its defective Pinnacle hip implant. The case involved 5 plaintiffs, all Texas residents, who were implanted with the Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip device.
Verdict was for approximately $130 million in compensatory damages and almost $360 million in punitive damages.
The trial team was led by Mark Lanier. Our office has been happy to place a small roll in this case and continues to accept additional victims of this truly awful product.
