Our Firm is representing numerous Wright hip lawsuit plaintiffs who are also alleged to have experienced early failure of their implants, and we are monitoring this trial closely.

The nation’s first trial involving a Wright Profemur hip replacement lawsuit (http://www.consumerinjurylawyers.com/wright-profemur-hip-replacement) is now underway in California Superior Court, Los Angeles County. According to court documents, opening statements were presented on May 28th, with the plaintiff’s attorney asserting that laser etchings on the Profemur hip replacement made the device brittle and prone to fracture, causing it to snap just three years after it had been implanted in his client. Since experiencing the fracture of his Profemur hip in 2010, the plaintiff has undergone 14 surgeries due to dislocations and infection, and will need to have his current artificial hip replaced in the near future. (Alan Warner, et al. v. Wright Medical Group, Case No. BC475958)

Wright Hip Litigation
According to court documents, Wright Medical Technologies is currently named a defendant in more than 1,200 product liability claims filed on behalf of individuals who allegedly experienced premature failures of Profemur or Conserve hip replacements. Court records indicate that the company has reached settlements in a small number of Profemur lawsuits, including a case that was set to go to trial in the U.S. District Court, Middle District of Georgia in December 2013. (Courson, et ux. v. Wright Medical Technology, Inc., No. 5:12-cv-173) In March 2013, the company resolved another Profemur claim that had been pending in U.S. District Court, Northern District of California. (Tucker, et ux. v. Wright Medical Technology, Inc., et al., No. 4:11-cv- 03086)

Court filings indicate that the majority of claims involving Wright Conserve hip replacements have been filed in a federal multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Georgia. Plaintiffs in those lawsuits alleges that recipients of the metal-on-metal Conserve implants are at risk for metallosis, pseudotumor formation, premature device failure, and other serious complications that often result in a need to surgically remove and replace the hip implant. (In re: Wright Medical Technology, Inc., Conserve Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2329)

Individuals who have allegedly suffered serious and debilitating complications due to the Wright Profemur hip replacement or a Wright Conserve hip implant may be entitled to compensation for their injury-related damages.
