Wright Conserve Hip Replacement Lawsuits Move Forward, as Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Issuance of Amended Discovery Plan in Federal Wright Hip Litigation

New York, New York (PRWEB) May 16, 2013

Wright Conserve hip replacement lawsuits continue to move forward in a federal multidistrict litigation now underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Georgia, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. On May 15th, the Court issued the litigation’s Second Amended Detailed Discovery Plan, which will govern discovery in the proceeding. Among other things, the Plan directs the parties to submit bellwether trial selections by October 18, 2013, and stipulates that all expert discovery in the Wright hip lawsuits will conclude by November 15, 2013. (In re: Wright Medical Technology, Inc., Conserve Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2329)

“We continue to hear from Wright hip implant recipients who have suffered serious and debilitating complications, allegedly due to Conserve and Profemur hips. Our attorneys are pleased to see this litigation progressing,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is actively filing Wright hip lawsuits, and continues to offer free legal evaluations to individuals who suffered serious complications, allegedly due to Wright Conserve and Profemur hip replacements.

Wright Hip Lawsuits
All of the Wright hip lawsuits pending in the Northern District of Georgia allege use of the Wright Conserve Total Hip Implant System, Conserve Total A-Class Advanced Metal Hip Implant System, and the Conserve Resurfacing System resulted in the accumulation of excessive metal ions in recipients, many of whom were forced to undergo revision surgery. In a regulatory filing dated April 30th, Wright Medical Group reported that additional Conserve hip replacement lawsuits had been filed in state court in California, a number of which have been consolidated for pretrial handling pursuant to procedures of California State Judicial Counsel Coordinated Proceedings.*

According to a Joint Notice of Settlement filed with the U.S. District Court, Northern District of California, on March 20th, a settlement has been reached in one lawsuit involving the Wright Profemur hip replacement. (Tucker, et ux. v. Wright Medical Technology, Inc., et al., No. 4:11-cv-03086) In its April 30th filing, Wright Medical warned that last year’s Stryker hip recall for Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems could potentially affect sales of its Profemur modular-neck stems. The Company noted that the Stryker recall has increased industry focus on the safety of cobalt chrome modular neck products, such as the Profemur hips.*

Individuals who experienced complications related to Wright Profemur hip replacements or
Wright Conserve hips may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages. To learn more about Wright hip lawsuits, please visit Bernstein Liebhard LLP’s website, or call one of the Firm’s attorneys today for a free case review, at 800-511-5092.
