Biomet Hip Replacement Litigation
According to court records, all of the Biomet hip lawsuits filed in the Northern District of Indiana allege its metal-on-metal design can cause the hip to shed dangerous amounts of metal debris, leading to serious complications, including premature failure. In many cases, plaintiffs say they have been forced to undergo painful revision surgeries to have the M2a Magnum hip removed and replaced. However, due to bone and tissue loss allegedly caused by the Biomet hip replacement, many of these patients continue to suffer from pain and disability.
In January 2013, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) warned that metal-on-metal hip implants like the M2a Magnum were associated with higher rates of early failure compared to those composed of other materials. Recipients of these types of hips have been advised to undergo metal ion blood testing if they experience any symptoms that would indicate their hip is not performing as it should. In addition, the FDA proposed new guidelines that, if adopted, would impose stricter regulatory controls on metal-on-metal hip implants.
Biomet hip replacement recipients who have experienced complications allegedly related to the Biomet M2a Magnum hip system may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
