Metal-on-Metal Hip Implants: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Applauds American Association for Justice Position on Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement Regulation

However, the Association also pressed the FDA to include language in any final regulation that would prevent manufacturers from using any subsequent approval through the Premarket Approval (PMA) process to defeat any metal-on-metal hip replacement lawsuits that were filed before the process changes.*

“We applaud the American Association for Justice for bringing this important issue into focus.

The Firm continues to offer free legal evaluations to alleged victims of metal-on-metal hip replacement devices.
