About Joshua

Learn Joshua’s areas of practice.

Joshua S. Kincannon is Counsel in the Mass Torts & Class Action department at Wilentz, Goldman & Spitzer.  He has helped recover millions of dollars for victims of defective medical devices and implants throughout the country.  His practice centers on product liability litigation, specifically defective knee, hip, shoulder and wrist implants, as well as other serious personal injury cases and class actions.  As an associate, Josh litigated cases against several medical device manufacturers who utilized a sterilization process that destroyed the plastic components of knee and hip implants, resulting in implant failures and revisions for hundreds of patients.  Thereafter, Josh recognized a need to get useful information into the hands of patients, and so he created in 2002.  Josh continues to help dozens of clients every year throughout the country that have been implanted with unsafe, failed, or defective medical device implants.  Some recent litigations and appointments  include:
-Appointed Lead Counsel for all plaintiffs in, In Re Physiomesh Litigation MCL No.: 627.
-Appointed co-lead counsel for all plaintiffs in the Depuy ASR Hip Implant Multi-County Litigation in New Jersey. This litigation recently settled with a settlement valued at $2.5 billion dollars.
-Identified and developed a product liability claim against the makers of the Artelon Spacer thumb implant. These cases were consolidated as a Mass Tort known as the In re Artelon Spacer Implant Litigation in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas. The victims agreed to a confidential settlement. Swedish defendant Artimplant AB filed for bankruptcy and no longer sells this implant in the United States.
-Appointed to the Science Committee for the Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Implant Multi-County Litigation for the State of New Jersey. Case settlement of $1 billion includes the largest individual base award for a hip implant in any mass tort settlement in the country.
As an associate, Josh worked with plaintiffs’ liaison counsel in a historic consumer fraud national class action, Talalai v. Cooper Tire & Rubber Co., a case that resulted in a settlement valued between $1 billion and $3 billion to consumers. He also worked with lead counsel on behalf of plaintiffs in one of the largest pollution cases in New Jersey, Janes v. Ciba Geigy Corporation.
Josh won the prestigious Dean's Merit Scholarship to Rutgers Law School.  During his tenure at Rutgers, he volunteered his time at an elementary school in downtown Camden, New Jersey.  Josh's passion to help others continues in his work at Wilentz Goldman & Spitzer.  If you or a loved one has suffered an injury as a result of a defective hernia mesh, hip implant, infusion pump or other medical device, please contact our office for a free consultation.

This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
There aren't enough words to say thank you.
I was referred to Mr. Kincannon regarding my slip and fall on ice. I hired him to represent me and take on my case. It was by no means an easy case and I had many extensive injuries that have changed my life forever. Mr. Kincannon remained committed towards resolving this case in my favor, despite all of the challenges that we faced throughout the 3 years. He worked diligently and fought hard for me. When times were tough and my medical procedures were too much to bear, Mr. Kincannon and his staff always offered me support. I cannot find the words to express my gratitude for everything he and his office have done for me; I will always remain grateful and would recommend Mr. Kincannon.

I feel fortunate!!
Mr. Kincannon was MORE than an excellent attorney and advocate in my case. He was compassionate during a very difficult time in my life. I needed an attorney who would represent me by keeping my best interest at heart. I feel fortunate to have found Mr. Kincannon. Pleased with the outcome of my case, I am also comfortable with how we came to that outcome. I would not hesitate in recommending Mr. Kincannon to ANYONE who needed his services. I hope that I never need his help again, but if I do, I know that I can trust him to be in my corner!

Josh Kincannon
I referred a very difficult medical device product liability case to Josh and he did a phenomenal job working up the file and obtaining an excellent recovery for the client. The case had plenty of challenges and Josh did not shy away from any of them. I would recommend his services to anyone in need of representation in this specialized area.

Josh Kincannon
I have consulted with Mr Kincannon on a number of issues. He has been an excellent resource for labor-related issues with regard to my current employee contract, as well as someone whom I have referred family members to in the event they needed an attorney. I have found him to be knowledgeable in a number of areas of the law and appreciative of his discretion and tact with delicate subjects. He is an asset to his firm and someone I will seek help from again when the time comes.

professional, knowledgeable and responsive
The difference between Josh and other lawyers I've dealt with is that he is responsive; you can get him on the phone and he has time for you. He helped me through a difficult time and even gave me his direct email address so I could reach him whenever I needed to. He's very knowledgeable, but very friendly and approachable. I would definitely recommend him to others.

Refreshingly professional
Mr. Kincannon helped me with prompt professional service. He kept me informed on every aspect of my case, was always accessible and resolved the matter in a timely manner. Mr. Kincannon made me feel like I was his most important client. There was never a moment where I wondered what was going on with my case and needed to call. Mr. Kincannon was communicative and up front with my options. He was also very accurate with his appraisal of how the case would play out. Joshua Kincanon has my highest recommendation.
