Biomet Hip Implant Lawsuits

defective and dangerous products

Biomet, the M2a Magnum hip implant manufacturing company, has recently been subject to numerous lawsuits as the hip implant has caused many serious injuries to its patients. As a result of these design defects, lawsuits are being filed to receive compensation for patients injured as a result of the hip implants. These design defects are linked to premature failure and metal toxicity.

If you or a family member has been injured as a result of a Biomet hip implant, or another defective product, the victim may be eligible to receive compensation for their losses and damages, and may be able to take part in this expanding litigation.

To discover if you are eligible to file a claim over Biomet hip implant injuries, complete the Free Case Evaluation form, or give us a call at 800-374-8422 today.

Problems Linked To The Biomet M2a Magnum Hip Implant

There are a number of problems which have been linked to the Biomet M2a hip implant, including metallosis and hip implant failure. These issues are related to the metal-on-metal design of the device, along with its ability to release high levels of metal ions when it begins to wear. Some problems stemming from extensive levels of cobalt measured in those with the Biomet hip implants include:

  • Blindness
  • Convulsions
  • Headaches
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Optic nerve damage
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Tinnitus
  • Vertigo

Similar to that of other metal-on-metal implants, the Biomet hip implant uses a metal ball and metal socket. Research associated with the Biomet Hip Implant Lawsuits indicates that over time, microscopic metallic ions are being released into the surrounding bones, muscles and other tissues. These metallic ions result in increased metallic levels in the patients, while also resulting in pain, swelling, bone loss and tissue death. As a result, it is difficult to perform revision surgery in such cases.

Biomet Hip Replacement Litigation Status

In October 2012, federal judges determined that all pending suits involving the Biomet M2a Magnum must be centralized into one court with a single judge. The panel of federal judges discovered that all Biomet Hip Implant Lawsuits contained similar issues in regard to design defects, therefore allowing them to be combined into a multidistrict litigation. Here, a judge will supervise the litigation throughout the discovery and pretrial phase, including the witness testimonies and documentation that will be used as evidence in each case.

This order will require that all pending and forthcoming Biomet M2a Magnum hip implant lawsuits be reassigned to the U.S. District Court for the North District of Indiana before the Honorable Robert L. Miller Jr. There have been approximately 790 Biomet Hip Implant Lawsuits filed as of November 2013, while many more are expected.
