Biomet Hip Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports on Latest Status Conference in Federal Biomet Hip Replacement Litigation

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 18, 2013

Biomet hip lawsuit claims involving the M2a Magnum hip continue to move forward in a multidistrict litigation in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Indiana, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to court records, the litigation’s most recent status conference was held on June 17th, at which time the Court also convened a motions hearing and a tutorial on the scientific and technical issues pertinent to the Biomet hip replacement litigation. The proceeding’s next Status Conference has been scheduled for July 29, 2013. (In re: Biomet M2a Magnum Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation – MDL No. 2391)

“We are pleased to see that Biomet hip lawsuits are progressing. Our Firm continues to hear from M2a Magnum hip recipients who have allegedly suffered serious complications, including metallosis, premature device failure, and the need for revision surgery, due to this metal-on-metal hip implant,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is actively filing Biomet hip replacement lawsuits in the federal multidistrict litigation, and continues to offer free and confidential case evaluations to individuals who may have been injured by Biomet M2a Magnum implants.

Biomet Hip Lawsuits
Court records indicate that at least 308 Biomet hip lawsuits were pending in the federal litigation as of May 14, 2013. All of the lawsuits filed in the proceeding claim that the M 2a Magnum implant is prone to wear, and can generate high metal ion levels due to its metal-on-metal design. Biomet hip recipients have allegedly suffered metallosis and other adverse tissue reactions, premature device failure and additional complications that resulted in revision surgery to remove and replace the hip.

Metal-on-metal hip implants, like the Biomet M2a Magnum, are currently the subject of a U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) safety review, which is being conducted amid a growing body of evidence that indicates the metal shed from such devices can cause premature failure of the hip, as well as numerous other complications. In January, the FDA advised that recipients of metal-on-metal hip implants undergo blood tests to determine their metal ion levels if they are suffering any symptoms that would indicate their hip could be failing. The FDA also proposed a new rule that would make all-metal hips ineligible for 510(k) approvals, a process which allowed metal-on-metal hips to come to market without first undergoing human clinical trials.*

Biomet hip replacement recipients who allegedly suffered injuries as a result of the M2a Magnum hip may be entitled to compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering.
