New York, New York (PRWEB) November 01, 2013
Wright hip lawsuits (http://www.consumerinjurylawyers.com/wright-profemur-hip-replacement) involving Wright Medical Technology’s Profemur Hip Replacement System continue to move forward in courts throughout the U.S., Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to court documents filed on October 22nd in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Georgia, Wright Medical is seeking to limit testimony given by the Plaintiffs’ treating physician during trial. Among other things, the Defense asserts that the doctor should not be permitted to offer opinions on cardiac, pulmonary, psychiatric, or other topics outside his surgical specialty. (Courson, et ux. v. Wright Medical Technology, Inc., No. 5:12-cv-173)
“We are monitoring this case very closely, as we continue to hear from patients who have suffered serious injuries, allegedly due to Wright Profemur hip replacements and Wright Conserve hip implants. The allegations contained in this Wright hip lawsuit echo what we have heard from our own clients,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is actively filing Wright hip lawsuits, and continues to offer free legal evaluations to individuals who were allegedly injured due to Wright Profemur and Conserve hip replacements.
Wright Hip Lawsuits
According to court documents, this is just one of numerous Wright hip lawsuits filed in courts around the country over injuries allegedly caused by Wright Profemur hip replacements or Wright Conserve hips. Court documents filed in March in U.S. District Court, Northern District of California indicated that Wright Medical had already reached a settlement in at least one claim pertaining to the Profemur hip. (Tucker, et ux. v. Wright Medical Technology, Inc., et al., No. 4:11-cv-03086)
Additional court filings show that 74 federally-filed Wright hip lawsuits have been filed against the company over its Conserve line of metal-on-metal hips, all of which are pending in a multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Georgia. (In re: Wright Medical Technology, Inc., Conserve Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2329) In April, Wright Medical Technology also disclosed in a regulatory fling that it had been named in additional Conserve hip lawsuits that have been consolidated in California Superior Court for pretrial handling pursuant to procedures of California State Judicial Counsel Coordinated Proceedings. All of these lawsuits allege injuries due to the metal-on-metal design of the Conserve Total Hip Implant System, Conserve Total A-Class Advanced Metal Hip Implant System, and the Conserve Resurfacing.*
