Date:1/9/2014

New York, New York (PRWEB) January 09, 2014

Hundreds of Biomet hip lawsuits (http://www.consumerinjurylawyers.com/biomet-magnum-hip-replacement) filed on behalf of plaintiffs who were allegedly injured by the M2a Magnum Hip Replacement System continue to move forward in a multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Indiana. According to documents filed on January 7, 2014, the Court has issued an Order directing Biomet hip replacement plaintiffs to complete a Preliminary Disclosure Form. The Court further stipulated that forms completed by plaintiffs with claims currently pending in the proceeding are to be served to the defendants’ liaison counsel within 30 days of the date of the Order. Plaintiffs who file Biomet hip lawsuits at a later date are to serve their completed forms within 30 days from the date their lawsuit is either filed in or transferred to the proceeding. (In re: Biomet M2a Magnum Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation – MDL No. 2391)

“Our Firm is representing a number of clients in this proceeding, and we continue to hear from Biomet hip replacement recipients who have allegedly sustained serious injuries due to the M2a Magnum hip system. We expect the number of filings in the federal litigation will continue to grow, and look forward to additional progress in the coming year” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices, including clients who have filed Biomet hip lawsuits. The Firm continues to offer free and confidential legal consultations to individuals who may have been injured by the Biomet M2a Magnum Hip Replacement System.

Biomet Hip Lawsuits
According to court documents, almost 900 Biomet hip lawsuits have been filed in the Northern District of Indiana, all of which allege that the metal-on-metal design of the M2a Magnum Hip Replacement System can cause painful and disabling complications, including metallosis, chronic pain, and loss of mobility. According to an Order issued in December, the Court is contemplating scheduling as many as five bellwether trials in the proceeding. Those trials would most likely take place in June, August, October, and December of 2015 and January 2016.

In January 2013, a safety communication issued by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) as part of its review of metal-on metal hip implants cautioned that such devices were more likely to fail prematurely than other artificial hip designs. The agency said patients implanted with metal-on-metal hip implants should seek medical attention if they experience any symptoms that could indicate a problem with the device. At the same time, the FDA said it was proposing new regulations that would subject this class of devices to greater regulatory scrutiny.

Individuals who may have sustained serious injuries allegedly due to the Biomet M2a Hip Replacement System could be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and more.
