New York, New York (PRWEB) May 06, 2013

Smith & Nephew hip recall lawsuits associated with last year’s recall of the optional metal liner component for the R3 Acetabular Hip Replacement System continue to mount in courts throughout the U.S., Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to court documents, plaintiffs in Tennessee recently filed a motion seeking the establishment of a consolidated litigation in Shelby County Circuit Court for all Smith & Nephew lawsuits filed in the state, including those involving the R3 metal liner component. (Docket No. CT-004783-12)

“Since the announcement of the Smith & Nephew recall, we have heard from numerous individuals who suffered serious complications, allegedly due to the R3 metal liner component. A consolidated proceeding like the one proposed in Tennessee would allow these lawsuits to proceed efficiently through the courts,” says Bernstein & Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The firm is currently offering free Smith & Nephew lawsuit evaluations to hip recipients who suffered serious complications, including metallosis and premature device failure, allegedly due to the R3 metal liner component.

Potential complications from the device include infections, fracture
