A California appeals court has upheld a $8.3 million verdict in favor of a retired prison guard who said he was injured by a metal hip implant. The court found that the verdict against Johnson & Johnson was supported by substantial evidence. The appeals court said that Loren Kransky, the Plaintiff, had presented a mountain of evidence to back his claim that DePuy Orthopaedics Inc.’s ASR XL metal hip had injured him and caused years of pain. The jury had awarded $8 million for noneconomic losses, which was added to $338,000 in medical expenses.
Kransky is represented by Martin N. Buchanan of Law Offices of Martin N. Buchanan, John H. Gomez of Gomez Trial Attorneys, Dean A. Goetz of Law Offices of Dean A. Goetz, Michael A. Kelly, Khaldoun A. Baghdadi of Walkup Melodia Kelly & Schoenberger and Brian J. Panish of Panish Shea & Boyle LLP. The case is Loren Kransky v. DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. in the Court of Appeal of the State of California, Second Appellate District.
