65 year-old Loren Kransky was recently awarded an $8 million verdict in his lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson (“J&J”). The verdict came after a Los Angeles, California jury determined that the health care giant knowingly marketed a faulty hip implant that was later recalled.
Kransky alleged that the metallic ball-and-socket hip joint implant was defectively designed and that J&J knew of its defects. Nevertheless, the company allegedly still marketed the implant to the public.
The joint implant involved at trial was sold for a period of almost eight years to more than 90,000 people worldwide before it was recalled by J&J in 2011.
The jury verdict is sure to have a significant impact on the thousands of similar cases that are pending against J&J for the faulty hip implant.
