DePuy Pinnacle Hip Lawsuits Expected To Rise In 2013, Says Legal-Bay.com

Lawsuit Settlement Funding Firm believes that as more Pinnacle Hip Implant Patients have more problems and are aware of the DePuy ASR and Liner Recall they will seek attorney referrals in 2013.

 
PRLog - Dec. 15, 2012 - Las Vegas, Nevada -12/15/2012- Legal-Bay.com, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announced today that they believe the DePuy, Johnson & Johnson, Pinnacle Model will see a large increase in hip lawsuit filings in 2013.  

Legal-Bay.com, which is a plaintiff advocate firm for mass tort clients such as DePuy and Transvaginal Mesh cases, has been receiving a large number of Pinnacle DePuy clients who are looking for lawyers to assist with their cases.   The difference between the Pinnacle Hip and the ASR is that the ASR is on a voluntary recall, while the Pinnacle is not.  And to date, DePuy has stood by the product.  However, the metal-on-metal components are virtually the same say  experts, especially in the fact that both products cause metallosis - which is essentially poisoning to the blood.  

DePuy has their hands full as approximately 8K suits are now filed in the courts and only a few early cases have been settled for the ASR model.  However, the Pinnacle litigation only has 2K or so cases filed to date.  Legal-Bay.com thinks this number will be increased dramatically in 2013.  

"The big difference is that ASR models are aware of their recall by letter to the patients, whereas the Pinnacle patients have not been notified.  That means either their problems must be so severe or that they would need to have been notified through media channels.  We have been receiving large numbers of callers that have the DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant asking if they have a lawsuit?  And the answer is yes", said Patty Kirby, Head of Client Relations at Legal-Bay.com.  

Legal-Bay.com primary assists clients with pre-settlement lawsuit funding on product liability cases, such as DePuy, prior to their cases even being settled.  Legal-Bay.com can provide up to $50K in a DePuy lawsuit cash advance.  Legal-Bay.com also assists with surgical funding if DePuy or insurance is unable to pay for the entire revision surgery.  And Legal-Bay.com is also able to refer patients who need a lawsuit referral to a top DePuy law firm who can offer them with a free consultation.
