Biomet Hip Lawsuits Mount, as Cases in Federal Litigation Near 500, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports
Date:7/17/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) July 17, 2013

Biomet hip lawsuit claims involving the Biomet M2a Hip Replacement System continue to mount in a multidistrict litigation now underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Indiana, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to an update issued by the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) on July 10th, 493 Biomet hip replacement claims are currently pending in the proceeding. All of the lawsuits filed thus far allege the Biomet M2a Magnum implant’s metal-on-metal design can shed dangerous amounts of toxic metal debris as a result of wear, leading to metallosis and other adverse tissue reactions, as well as premature device failure. (In re: Biomet M2a Magnum Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation – MDL No. 2391)

“We continue to hear from alleged victims of metal-on-metal hip implants, including the Biomet M2a Magnum, on a regular basis. It is not surprising that nearly 500 claims have been filed in this litigation,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is representing clients in Biomet hip 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 Replacement Lawsuits
The Biomet hip replacement litigation was established by the JPML in October 2012, when six federal lawsuits involving the M2a Magnum hip implant were transferred to the Northern District of Indiana. According to court documents, the Court has scheduled a telephonic status conference for July 29, 2013, while a full status conference is scheduled for September 23, 2013.

The Biomet M2a Magnum is a metal-on-metal hip implant, a class of artificial hips that has raised safety concerns in recent years. In January, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) warned that recipients of such hip implants may be at increased risk for bone and tissue damage, pain, implant loosening, and premature device failure due to their propensity to shed dangerous amounts of metal debris into the surrounding tissue and blood stream. The agency advised all-metal hip patients to undergo metal ion testing if they are experiencing symptoms of hip implant failure. The FDA also said it had proposed a new rule that would make all-metal hips ineligible for 510(k) approvals, a process which allowed such devices to come to market without first undergoing human clinical trials.*

Victims of serious complications allegedly caused by the Biomet M2a Magnum hip may be entitled to compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering.
