Thousands of upset patients have filed lawsuits after suffering life-threatening health problems with their defective metal-on-metal hips. Several hip implant litigations have settled in recent years.
Metal-on-metal hip implant settlements include:
- $1.4 Billion Settlement in the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implant litigation in Bergen County, New Jersey
- $56 Million Settlement in Biomet M2a Magnum hip implant litigation in the Northern District of Indiana
- $2.5 Billion Settlement in the DePuy Orthopaedics Articular Surface Replacement (ASR) hip implant litigation
Standing up to a manufacturer who failed to adequately test their products before allowing them to be implanted in people’s bodies is the only way to deter these incidents from happening again. Companies can be held responsible for their misdeeds when you have fearless advocates on your side.
