Most plaintiffs’ claims focus upon “the metal-on-metal design of the Conserve products and the alleged propensity of the devices to generate high levels of metal debris, cause metallosis in the surrounding tissue and/or fail early"
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 18, 2013
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, updated the website recently and they are now actively providing expert opinion in view of the recent news on Hip Replacements lawsuits.
According to court documents, the next Status Conference call with the parties and the Court of the Wright Hip Multi-District Litigation has been scheduled for February 11th, 2013 (U.S. District Court, Northern District of Georgia, MDL 2329). The cases in this litigation primarily involve alleged defects in Wright’s Conserve line of hip implant products. Most plaintiffs’ claims focus upon “the metal-on-metal design of the Conserve products and the alleged propensity of the devices to generate high levels of metal debris, cause metallosis in the surrounding tissue and/or fail early (including loosening of the acetabular cup)”.
In a lawsuit filed in Arizona District Court (case no. 2:2011cv02113), plaintiff claims she was implanted with Wright Profemur Z hip in 2006 and in 2009 she had to undergo painful removal surgery as the radiographs revealed that the acetabular cup had rotated approximately 90 degrees clockwise. According to court documents, on October 3rd, 2012, US District Judge dismissed the failure to warn claim, but upheld the design defect claim.
Taking into consideration the latest developments, AttorneyOne.com updated the website and, now, can actively provide an expert opinion including how to get in contact with legal counsel easily and inexpensively in case of alleged Wright Hip severe complications. Sean Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, adds that the relevant information illustrates that people continue to file Wright Hip lawsuits. "For that reason", he continues, "our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
On June 21st, 2012 Bloomberg published that FDA reported approximately 16,800 adverse events related to metal-on-metal hip implants (including Wright Hip Replacement) in the US from 2000-2011.
