(PRWEB) January 25, 2013
Proceedings for Wright Conserve Hip Replacement lawsuits continue to progress in the multidistrict litigation in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, the Rottenstein Law Group reports.
The next status conference is scheduled for 2 p.m. on Feb. 11, according to court documents (In re: Wright Medical Technology, Inc., Conserve Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, MDL-2329).
The Wright Conserve, as with other metal-on-metal hip implants, can cause dangerous side effects. According to the FDA, these include a high failure rate, difficulty walking and metallosis, which occurs when the grinding of the metal components causes metal flakes to shed into the bloodstream and poison the central nervous system.
“Those who believe they have been injured by the Wright Conserve should know that they might be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group. “We are encouraged by the progress of this MDL.”
The Rottenstein Law Group maintains a Wright Conserve Hip Lawsuit Information Center that provides updates on the Wright Conserve recall and information about the device’s side effects and tips on the next steps in the process toward evaluating whether Wright Conserve replacement recipients should file lawsuits.
