Date:11/18/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) November 18, 2013

More than 700 Biomet hip lawsuits (http://www.consumerinjurylawyers.com/biomet-magnum-hip-replacement) filed on behalf of patients who were allegedly injured by the Biomet M2a Magnum Hip Replacement System continue to move forward in a federal multidistrict litigation now underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Indiana, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to court records, the parties have submitted proposals for the litigation’s bellwether trial process. The proposal submitted by Plaintiffs’ attorneys would allow for those trials to begin in March 2016, while the Defense proposal would have the first trials start in late 2014. (In re: Biomet M2a Magnum Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation – MDL No. 2391)

“Bellwether trials are an important step in any multidistrict litigation, and will help to gauge how juries might rule in similar Biomet hip replacement claims. We are pleased to see these cases moving towards this milestone,” 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 System
Court records indicate that at least 725 Biome hip lawsuits involving the M2a Magnum hip are pending in the federal multidistrict litigation underway in Indiana. Accordint to court documents, plaintiffs in these lawsuits allege that the metal-on-metal design of the M2a hip allows dangerous amounts of toxic chromium and cobalt particles to be shed into recipients’ tissue and blood stream. This action may cause recipients of the M2a Magnum to suffer metallosis and other serious complications that result in failure of the device and need for revision surgery. Among other things, court filings indicate that Biomet hip replacement plaintiffs claim that the M2a Magnum had been associated with early failures shortly after being launched on the market, and should have been subject to a recall.

Metal-on-metal hip implants were the subject of a U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) warning earlier this year, when the agency cautioned that such devices appeared to be associated with higher rates of failure than hips made from other materials. According to the FDA, all-metal hip recipients should undergo testing for elevated levels of metal ions in their blood if they experience symptoms of a failing hip implant, 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 make metal-on-metal hips ineligible for the agency’s 510(k) clearance program, which allowed the devices to come to market without premarket clinical testing. The proposed regulations would also require the manufacturers of metal-on-metal hips already on the market to conduct safety studies of those products in order to keep selling them.

Individuals who allegedly suffered serious and debilitating complications associated with the
Biomet M2a Hip Replacement System may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and more.
