Biomet Hip Replacement Lawsuits
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 can result in the shedding of dangerous amounts of toxic metal ions, leading to debilitating complications, including chronic pain and metallosis. Some of the plaintiffs claim that they have been forced to undergo painful revision surgery to replace their failing hip, and in many cases, continued to suffer permanent disability following its removal.

Metal-on-metal hip implants, like the Biomet hip replacement, have been the subject of growing safety concerns for several years now. In January 2013, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) warned that metal-on-metal hips were associated with higher rates of early failure compared to those composed of other materials. The agency also advised all-metal hip recipients to undergo testing for dangerously high levels of metal in their blood if they experienced any symptoms that would indicate their hip was failing. In addition, the FDA proposed new guidelines that, if adopted, would impose stricter regulatory controls on metal-on-metal hip implants.

Biomet hip replacement recipients who have allegedly suffered serious complications due to the Biomet M2a Magnum hip may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
