Metal Hip Replacment Lawsuit Claims
Several manufacturers of hip replacement devices are currently facing allegations that they produced defective products and failed to warn the medical and public communities of the potential risks involved with those products. Also, because most metal-on-metal devices are approved through the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) 510(k) process, allowing companies to release products without extensive clinical testing if they are similar to others that are already available to the public, manufacturers are accused of neglecting to properly test the implants.
DePuy Orthopaedics has faced thousands of lawsuits filed on behalf of ASR patients as well as additional claims from recipients of its Pinnacle implant. According to court documents, the company has agreed to pay $2.5 billion to resolve 7,500 ASR lawsuits. Additionally, the following companies and their respective devices have been named in metal-on-metal lawsuits:
- Smith & Nephew: R3 Acetabular System
- Biomet: M2a Magnum
- Wright Medical Technology: Conserve line
- Stryker Orthopedics: Rejuvenate, ABG II modular-neck hip stems
- Zimmer Holdings: Durom Cup
How a Kansas Metal Hip Replacement Lawsuit Can Help
Medical device makers have a duty to provide safe products. If there are risks of harm associated with their devices, they also must provide adequate warnings. If a device maker fails to fulfill this duty, it could be held liable in lawsuits for injuries that may result.
People injured by defective metal hip implants may be eligible to recover money for:
- Medical Expenses
- Lost Wages
- Pain and Suffering
The families of those killed may be eligible to recover money for funeral expenses and the pain that comes with losing a loved one.
