Lawyer tells jurors in hip implants case company ignored problems


Bloomberg News provides an update on the legal case related to Johnson & Johnson’s Pinnacle hip implants, noting a lawyer told jurors that the company’s “bid to convince doctors the metal-on-metal version of its Pinnacle hip implants were safe amounted to ‘marketing run amok.’” Mark Lanier, a lawyer for a Montana woman who filed the lawsuit after complications, noted J&J’s DePuy “unit ignored signs the Pinnacle hips suffered from design flaws and assured doctors the metal devices worked ‘99.9 percent of the time.’” The lawsuit claims the metal hips by J&J, “leeched cobalt and chromium material into her bloodstream, causing an infection that required the devices to be surgically removed.”
