In August 2010, DePuy Orthopaedics recalled the ASR hip implant system. This defective implant now has a 50% failure rate. We have helped negotiate settlements totaling more than $3 billion for this product.
DePuy Orthopaedics stopped selling the Pinnacle metal-metal hip implant, which is associated with significantly higher failure rates. We have been part of two trials involving this product resulting in jury verdicts of $500 million and $1 billion
