Biomet Hip Replacement Lawsuit Attorney

Experienced Representation for Victims Nationwide

Biomet is a company that manufactured a variety of hip replacement devices to those who had chronic hip pain. When an individual goes through hip replacement surgery, the arthritic ball of with the upper femur, the cartilage, and damaged bone are removed from the hip socket. The damaged cartilage and bone are replaced with hip implants, which are made of materials such as polyethylene plastic, ceramic, and metal alloys. The purpose of having hip implant surgery is to successfully provide an individual with a pain-free, functioning joint, which eliminates the pain caused by bone-to-bone contact.

Biomet is the manufacturer for hip replacement devices, which include the well-known Stanmore, Exceed ABT, and M2a Magnum. The company is responsible for manufacturing a number of hip replacement devices that could be used for a variety of hip surgeries. Biomet claimed that it produced the widest selection of hip replacement products on the market before the company was sold to Zimmer in 2014. Biomet made claims that its E1 Antioxidant Infused Technology produced a lower rear rate than other products.

The M2a MoM (metal on metal) total hip arthroplasty, which is also known as the THA system, was introduced in 2000. Since the release of the MoM THA system, Biomet marketed the following hip replacement devices:

  • Biomet M2a Magnum
  • Biomet M2a 38
  • Biomet M2a Taper
  • Biomet M2a Ringloc
  • Biomet M2 28 MM
  • Biomet Stanmore
  • Biomet Exceed ABT

Between 2000 and 2009, there were over 110,000 M2a devices that were implanted in individuals. One of the company’s most popular devices was the M2a Magnum, which was released in 2004. The M2a Magnum line included a porous titanium alloy that is coated on the outside surface of the cup, which Biomet claimed would promote bone growth in the hip area. The inside of the M2a Magnum device included cobalt chromium alloy. The M2a Magnum product was designed for those who are active, which included up to 160 degrees of motion range. Doctors were given a variety of head sizes to use on patients, which included head sizes that were larger than normal. The problem with the larger head sizes is that it caused the surface area to rub against the inside of the product.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
