ATLANTA, June 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announced today that a $4.5 million verdict was reached against Wright Medical Technology Inc. over their Profemur R hip implant. Jurors in Los Angeles County Superior Court found that Wright's Profemur R was not defective in its design, however, it was defective in its manufacturing. According to The National Law Journal, a written statement by Wright Medical says that the company plans an appeal. Wright Medical Technology Inc. currently faces more than 1,000 lawsuits over their hip implants. The majority of the cases have been coordinated for pretrial proceedings in either the LA County Superior Court or the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia where the multidistrict litigation (MDL) is taking place (MDL No. 2329). Bellwether trials are set to begin this year, possibly as soon as August.
Patty Kirby, COO and Head of Client Relations, commented on the recent verdict against Wright Medical Technology, "The Wright hip litigation has started in a similar fashion as some of the other hip litigations, such as DePuy, Stryker, and Biomet, whereas large awards seem to be going in the favor of the plaintiffs. If past history is any indication, it could spell trouble for Wright in resolving the thousand active lawsuit claims."
