J&J under Suspicion of Launching Defected Hip

J&J under Suspicion of Launching Defected Hip

As per reports, the chase of Johnson & Johnson (JNJ)'s for earning maximum profit resulted in a defective metal-on-metal hip. This device was unsuccessful in completing its motives and failed earlier than any other similar device, argued a lawyer at the first of 10,750 lawsuits over the recalled implant to go to trial.

The court heard a close argument between the attorneys of Loren Kranksy, 65 and the Johnson & Johnson (JNJ)'s. Loren claimed that the firm designed a defected ASR hip and also did not warn about the risks. Brian Panish, Loren's Lawyer demanded for compensation of an amount of $5.3 million and a penalty amount of $179 million.

Panish stated that the firm tasted failure before also and had to recall 93,000 ASR hip implants in August 2010. He added that the depuy unit stated at that time that there is a 12% failure in five years. He also stated that the rate of failures of the product in Australia rises up to 44% in 2012.

J&J is considered as the largest seller of health-care products in the world. Panish argued further that there was a defect in the design of the equipments from the very first day. He added that the damage faced by his client is more than what any hip had ever done to anyone. However, J&J denies the claims. Judge J. Stephen Czuleger ordered the deliberation to begin tomorrow.
