Biomet Hip Replacement Lawsuits: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Upcoming Status Conference in Federal Biomet Hip Litigation
Date:3/31/2013

ts, the agency proposed a new rule in January that would make this class of devices ineligible to receive market approval via the FDA’s 510(k) clearance process. This approval process allows a product to bypass human testing if the manufacturer can prove it to be substantially equivalent to one already on the market. The agency also issued a new recommendation that patients who received metal-on-metal hip implants consider metal ion testing if they are experiencing symptoms associated with early hip failure.*

Court records indicate there are at least 141 Biomet hip lawsuits pending in the litigation established in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Indiana. These claims allege the Biomet M2a Magnum hip replacement can cause patients to suffer injuries related to high levels of metal ions, which may lead to metallosis in the surrounding tissue and blood, as well as early failure of the device. The lawyers at Bernstein Liebhard LLP are actively involved in the litigations involving other metal-on-metal hip implant devices as well. In addition to filing lawsuits in the multidistrict litigation currently underway in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio, for claims involving the DePuy ASR hip implant (MDL No. 2197), The Firm is also directly involved in the federal litigation established in the Northern District of Texas for lawsuits filed over the metal-on-metal DePuy Pinnacle hip device (MDL No. 2244). In this litigation, Firm partner Jeffrey S. Grand is serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee.

Patients who received metal-on-metal hips and suffered metallosis, hip implant failure and other serious side effects they claim to be caused by the Biomet hip replacement may be eligible to file a claim seeking compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages incurred by their injuries.
