Biomet Hip Replacement Lawsuits
According to court documents, the Biomet M2a Magnum Hip Replacement System is a metal-on-metal hip implant that consists of a chromium-cobalt femoral head and acetabular shell. Plaintiffs allege that this design can cause the hip to shed dangerous amounts of metal debris leading to serious and debilitating complications, premature failure of the device, and revision surgery to remove and replace the implant.
In January 2013, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) warned that metal-on-metal hip implants had been associated with higher rates of premature failure compared to those made from other materials. The FDA has proposed new regulations that would subject such implants to more regulatory oversight, and advised recipients with all-metal hips to undergo metal ion blood testing if they experience any symptoms that would indicate their hip may be failing.
Alleged victims of Biomet hip replacement injuries may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
