Biomet is the manufacturer of the second-most widely used total metal-on-metal hip implant system.
A large number of lawsuits against Biomet, all of which allege damages stemming from the company’s metal-on-metal M2a Magnum Hip System, were consolidated in a multidistrict litigation action in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Indiana in the autumn of 2012. In January 2014, the parties agreed to settle nearly 1,000 lawsuits for $50 million total with base awards of $200,000 per hip.
Recipients of a Biomet replacement hip device might want to know what the symptoms of a failing artificial hip are. Aside from health concerns, knowing the characteristics of a failing hip can help recipients determine their eligibility for filing a Biomet hip implant lawsuit.
People who received either a Biomet M2a Magnum or M2a Acetabular System 38mm (M2a 38) might be interested in knowing about previous Biomet hip recalls to see how the company reacted to finding out its hip replacements had problems.
Many recipients of the Biomet M2a Magnum hip replacement and M2a Acetabular System 38mm (M2a 38) have suffered serious side effects from the implants. Some recipients have had to undergo revision procedures soon after receiving their hip replacements.
