A law firm involved in a BioMet M2A Magnum hip replacement lawsuit has alleged that the hip implant manufacturer has not turned over all the documents relevant to the case. The firm says that the company has roughly 19.5 million documents related to the M2A Magnum hip implant, but only turned over 2.5 million documents.
The law firm alleges that the company used a computer search with inaccurate keyword phrases to identify documents that might be pertinent to the M2A Magnum lawsuit. BioMet is being sued by patients who allege that the metal-on-metal hip replacement the company manufactured caused serious injury.
BioMet M2A Magnum side effects have affected thousands of hip replacement patients. The metal components of the implant can wear down, eventually causing severe complications, including tissue damage, limited mobility and toxic levels of metal in the blood stream.
