The problems with these metal-on-metal hip implants are widely reported, not only in the news media but also in medical journals.

One of the Rottenstein Law Group LLP’s latest websites is the Smith & Nephew Hip Lawsuit Center at http://www.smithandnephewhiplawsuit.com, which provides news and information on the R3 hip implant's side effects and patients’ lawsuit eligibility. Given the recent news in the New York Times* about a multibillion dollar DePuy settlement involving a metal-on-metal hip implant product similar to Smith & Nephew’s R3, it is important that implantees have access to this information.
Plaintiffs have brought lawsuits against Smith & Nephew, alleging they have suffered from the R3’s serious alleged side effects, with one of the more recent involving a New York woman, according to court documents (Susan Simon v. Smith & Nephew Inc.; case no. 151456/2013, Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of New York).
Problems with metal-on-metal hip replacement systems have plagued companies industry-wide. Smith & Nephew recalled its R3 acetabular system between 2009 and 2012, following reports of fractures, infections and dislocations, according to a Reuters report at the time.**
“The problems with these metal-on-metal hip implants are widely reported, not only in the news media but also in medical journals,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group LLP. “The growing body of evidence serves to reinforce the claims we hear daily from those who seek our counsel.”
The Rottenstein Law Group LLP encourages those who believe they have suffered from the R3’s alleged side effects to visit its FAQ page to learn more about Smith & Nephew lawsuits, the recall and side effects, and how to contact an attorney for a free consultation.
