(PRWEB) September 25, 2013
There are now more than 650 Biomet hip lawsuits pending in federal courts, an increase of about 70 from August, according to court documents. The Biomet hip lawyers at Rottenstein Law Group LLP encourage those interested in more information about lawsuits and side effects to visit its Biomet Hip Replacement Lawsuit Center.
The Biomet lawsuits were consolidated in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Indiana before Judge Robert L. Miller in order to increase pretrial efficiency, according to court documents (In Re: Biomet M2a Magnum Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation; MDL-2391, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Indiana).
“The M2a Magnum is one of a number of metal-on-metal hip devices over which people are filing lawsuits,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group LLP. “In addition, the devices have been under the scrutiny of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. There is a reason to further review one’s legal options if a person believes he or she has suffered injuries from his or her hip implant.”
The Biomet M2a Magnum implant is a metal-on-metal hip replacement device. The implant’s composition is such that it can cause problems when the metal components rub together and flake off metal ions into the implantee’s bloodstream, according to a January 2013 safety communication from the FDA.* Other alleged side effects include chronic pain, a popping sound and a grinding sensation in the hip device.
The Rottenstein Law Group LLP encourages those who are interested in learning more about the Biomet’s alleged side effects or Biomet lawsuits to visit its FAQ page for quick answers to several important questions.
