Biomet Hip Lawsuits
According to court documents, more than 950 Biomet hip lawsuits have been filed in the Northern District of Indiana since the multidistrict litigation was established in October 2012. All of the lawsuits claim that the metal-on-metal design of the M2a Magnum hip system caused plaintiffs to suffer serious complications, including metallosis, pseudotumor formation, and premature device failure, due to their propensity to shed toxic metal debris into recipients tissue and blood stream.
According to a report from Reuters, cases now filed in the litigation may be eligible for the settlement, as may be future lawsuits filed on or before April 15, 2014. Under the terms of the accord, plaintiffs who received one of the affected Biomet hip replacements as part of an initial surgery that was rectified more than 180 days after it was implanted will be eligible for a base award of $ 200,000, Reuters said.*
Biomet hip replacement patients who allegedly suffered serious complications due to the metal-on-metal design of the M2a Magnum hip system may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and more.
