Tennessee residents as well as many people throughout the country have heard about the problems and suffering that the Depuy hip replacements have caused for millions of people. Many people have required a second surgery to fix the problem and this has led to additional pain and suffering as well as additional medical expenses. If you or someone you love has had problems with your hip implant and you think it may be a Depuy hip implant, then you should speak with a Tennessee Depuy hip recall and defective product lawyer right away. They will hear your case and help make sure you get the compensation you need.
In this case, a Tennessee resident filed a Depuy Pinnacle lawsuit claiming that he had to have revision surgery to remove his implant after he started experiencing problems with metal on metal implant. The lawsuit is considered a product liability complaint and was filed by Ira M. Campbell and his wife Sherry Lynn on March 8th. They claim that the hip was defectively designed and that the manufactures failed to warn them about the possible risks of Depuy Pinnacle implants.
Campbell was given the implant on May 21, 2009, and had it for less than a year before it failed which then required him to have another surgery to remove the implant on April 6, 2010. The hip according to his claims should have lasted for at least ten years. Shortly after Campbell received his implant; it started to loosen due to friction and biologic corrosion which caused him to experience very severe hip pain. Campbell also claims that the problems from the defective Depuy Pinnacle hip implant have left him with permanent injuries including having to use a cane in order to walk.
Unfortunately cases just like Campbell’s have happened to other Tennessee residents as well as to people all across the country since the Depuy hip recall.
