Biomet Hip Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Filing of Biomet Hip Replacement Class Action Lawsuit in Canada

New York, NY (PRWEB) November 12, 2013

As Biomet hip lawsuit ( claims involving the Biomet M2a Magnum Hip Replacement System continue to mount in courts throughout the U.S., Bernstein Liebhard LLP notes that a recipient of an allegedly defective metal-on-metal Biomet hip implant has filed a class action lawsuit in Canada. According to court documents filed on November 4th in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, the Biomet hip replacement claim seeks to benefit all Canadian recipients of any Biomet metal-on-metal hip, including the M2a Magnum. (Dine and Biomet Inc., et al., No. CV-10-415755-00)

“The allegations set forth in this Canadian case echo the experiences alleged by many of our own metal-on-metal hip implant clients in the United States, including recipients of the M2a Magnum hip,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm continues to offer free and confidential Biomet hip lawsuit evaluations to individuals who may have been injured by the Biomet M2a Magnum Hip Replacement System.

Biomet Hip Replacement Lawsuits
The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) warned in January 2013 that metal-on-metal hip implants like those named in the Biomet hip lawsuit were more prone to early failure compared to those made from other materials. Recipients of all-metal hips have been advised by the FDA to undergo metal ion blood testing if they experience any symptoms that would indicate premature failure, including pain, swelling around the joint, difficulty walking, and popping, clicking, or squeaking sounds emanating from the hip. The agency has also proposed new regulations that would subject such implants to more regulatory oversight, including stringent premarket testing.

In the U.S., court records indicate that at least 725 Biomet hip replacement lawsuits are pending in a multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Indiana, where Bernstein Liebhard LLP is actively filing claims. Biomet hip lawsuit plaintiffs allege that the M2a Magnum’s chromium-cobalt ball and cup can wear and release dangerous amounts of toxic metal ions into recipients’ tissue and blood stream. This action can result in serious complications, including metallosis, chronic pain, and loss of mobility, which often necessitate revision surgery to remove and replace the implant, according to these lawsuits. (In re: Biomet M2a Magnum Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation – MDL No. 2391)

Victims of serious complications allegedly caused by the metal-on-metal design of the Biomet M2a Magnum hip may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
