Wright Hip Litigation
According to court documents, all of the Wright hip lawsuits pending in the Northern District of Georgia allege use of the Wright Conserve Total Hip Implant System, the Conserve Total A-Class Advanced Metal Hip Implant System, and the Conserve Resurfacing System caused painful and debilitating injuries as a result of the accumulation of excessive metal ions generated by the implants. The Court is currently in the process of selecting cases as potential candidates for the proceeding’s first bellwether trials, which could begin as early as March 2015.
Last Month, Wright Medical disclosed in a regulatory filing that more than 800 product liability claims involving Conserve hip products have been filed in state and federal courts throughout the U.S. The filing also revealed that the company is participating in a non-binding mediation program that has been established in the federal proceeding in Georgia. *
According to the same filing, the company is currently named as a defendant in at least 36 lawsuits involving the Wright Profemur hip replacement.
