California Man Has Elevated Cobalt Levels and Possible Need for Revision Surgery After His Biomet Hip Implant Failed, Alleges Lawsuit Filed by Parker Waichman LLP
Date:9/17/2013

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

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of victims injured by defective medical devices, has filed a lawsuit on behalf of a California man who alleges that his Biomet 38mm-M2a metal-on-metal hip replacement system is defective and caused pain and injuries, such as elevated cobalt levels, as well as the possible need for revision surgery.

On Sept. 21, 2011, the Plaintiff was found to have elevated cobalt levels.
