Wright Hip Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Issuance of New Order in Federal Wright Conserve Hip Replacement Litigation
Date:5/21/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) May 21, 2013

The federal judge overseeing the litigation established for Wright Conserve hip replacement lawsuits in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Georgia, recently issued an Order in response to a request from Plaintiffs’ Counsel to conduct Ex Parte interviews with former employees of the Defendant. The May 17th Order grants that request, and sets forth procedures under which such interviews may be conducted. (In re: Wright Medical Technology, Inc., Conserve Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2329)

“This Order will allow Wright Conserve hip replacement plaintiffs access to information that could be important to their claims. We are pleased to see this litigation moving forward, and look forward to more progress in the coming months,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm that represents the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently investigating lawsuits involving Wright Conserve hip implants, as well as Wright Profemur hip replacement claims.

Wright Hip Lawsuits
The Wright Conserve Hip Implant is a metal-on-metal hip replacement, in which the femoral ball and cup are made from a chromium/cobalt alloy. The litigation underway in the Northern District of Georgia involves claims related to the Wright Conserve Total Hip Implant System, Conserve Total A-Class Advanced Metal Hip Implant System, and the Conserve Resurfacing System. According to Court filings, plaintiffs allege that the all-metal design of these devices resulted in the accumulation of excessive metal ions in recipients, many of whom were forced to undergo revision surgery.

On January 17th, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) cautioned that metal debris released by all-metal hips can damage the bone and/or soft tissue surrounding the implant and joint, leading to adverse local tissue reactions, premature device failure, and even additional symptoms or illnesses elsewhere in the body. Among other things, the FDA cautioned doctors to consider metal ion testing if patients are experiencing symptoms of hip implant failure.*

In addition to Wright Conserve hip lawsuits, Wright Medical Group dislosed in an April 30th regulatory filing that is also facing a growing number of claims involving the Wright Profemur hip replacement system.** On March 20th, a Joint Notice of Settlement filed with the U.S. District Court, Northern District of California, reporting that one lawsuit involving a Profemur hip product had been resolved ahead of trial. (Tucker, et ux. v. Wright Medical Technology, Inc., et al., No. 4:11-cv-03086) In the April 30th filing, the company 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, as that recall has led to additional scrutiny of cobalt chrome modular neck products, such as the Profemur hips.**

Hip implant patients 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.
