Am I Eligible to File a Biomet Hip Replacement Lawsuit?
Patients filing hip replacement lawsuits have reported experiencing severe pain, swelling and difficulty walking caused by the Biomet M2a Magnum metal hip implants. As of December 2013, more than 900 Biomet hip implant lawsuits had been filed.
In October 2012, a panel of federal judges ordered that all pending Biomet M2a Magnum hip implant lawsuits be combined as a Multi-District Litigation (MDL). The order requires that all pending and future Biomet M2a Magnum hip lawsuits be transferred to the U.S. District Court for the North District of Indiana before the Honorable Robert L. Miller, Jr.
Many patients have experienced serious complications from Biomet M2a Magnum hip replacements including fretting and corrosion, loosening of the hip implant, metal poisoning and hip implant fractures. Some patients experiencing Biomet hip implant failure have had to undergo hip revision surgery.
