Biomet Hip Replacement Lawsuits
The Biomet M2a Magnum hip is a metal-on-metal hip implant, a class of artificial hips that have been the subject of growing safety concerns. In February 2011, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced it would review these devices, amid concerns that they could shed dangerous amounts of metal debris, leading to serious complications, including premature failure. In January 2013, the FDA announced that its review had indicated that metal-on-metal hips were associated with higher rates of early failure compared to those composed of other materials. The agency also advised patients fitted with all-metal hips to undergo testing for excessive levels of metal in their blood if they experienced any symptoms that would indicate their hip is not performing as it should. In addition, the FDA proposed new guidelines that, if adopted, would impose stricter regulatory controls on metal-on-metal hip implants.

According to court documents, all of the Biomet hip replacement claims pending in the Northern District of Indiana allege that the M2a Magnum’s metal-on-metal design has caused recipients to experience pain and debilitating complications, including chronic pain and metallosis, which often result in early failure of the device and necessitate painful and risky surgery to replace the hip. The proceeding’s next case management conference has been scheduled for September 23, 2013.

Recipients of Biomet hip replacements who have experienced complications like those alleged in Biomet hip lawsuits may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
