Tennessee Woman’s Biomet Metal Hip Implant Device Failed, Causing Pain, Elevated Metal Ion Levels, and the Need for Revision Surgery, Alleges Lawsuit Filed by Parker Waichman LLP
Date:8/6/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) August 06, 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 Tennessee woman who alleges that her Biomet M2a Magnum hip implant device is defective and caused her injuries, as well as the need to undergo revision surgery. The suit was filed on May 30, 2013 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Indiana, South Bend Division (Case No. 3:13-cv-508) and is one of many cases pending in the multidistrict litigation (MDL) entitled In re: Biomet M2a Magnum Hip Implants Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 3:12-md-2391). Biomet, Inc. and Biomet Orthopedics, LLC have been named as Defendants.

According to the Complaint, the Plaintiff was implanted in her left hip with the M2a Magnum system on April 13, 2009. The lawsuit alleges that by the time she underwent this implant surgery, the Defendants were already aware of over 100 adverse event reports linked to the device, yet they failed to disclose this information to the Plaintiff. Instead, the suit alleges, the Defendants misrepresented the M2a Magnum implant as safe and efficacious. Allegedly, the Plaintiff’s surgeon would not have implanted the M2a Magnum had it not been for the misrepresentations made by the Defendants.

The lawsuit alleges that, as a result of the M2a Magnum’s defective design, the Plaintiff’s hip implant failed, causing her severe pain, and resulting in her suffering from elevated metal ion levels. As a result of this, she underwent a complex, risky revision surgery to explant, or remove the device, and be re-implanted with a replacement hip device. The suit alleges that revision surgeries are generally more complex than initial implantation because there is typically less bone to work w
