LITTLE FALLS, N.J., Oct. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MT Services LLC, a Lawsuit Settlement News Reporting Company which operates lawsuitsettlementnews.com, announced today a primary focus on assisting plaintiffs who have suffered with complications from Wright Hip products. According to an updated Case List issued September 15, 2014, approximately 800 claims have been filed involving individuals who have dealt with complications related to the all-metal design of Conserve hips from Wright Medical Technology, Inc. The complications that may arise include metallosis (metal poisoning), tissue necrosis (death), loosening and other serious problems, and premature device failure. The filings involving these metal-on-metal hip replacements continue to grow in size and awareness, and the cases are underway in a multidistrict litigation in U.S. District Court in the Northern District of Georgia.
The first bellwether trial could begin as early as March 2015. The plaintiffs involved have had Wright Conserve hips as well as Wright Profemur hip replacements, and according to Drug Watch, "The complaints allege that the devices release high levels of metal particles in the blood that can cause loosening and device failure because of Wright's faulty metal-on metal design." Wright Medical Technology, Inc. disclosed in a regulatory filing that over 800 product liability claims relating to their Conserve hip products have been filed in state and federal courts throughout the U.S.
Chris Janish, CEO of MTS commented on the Wright Litigation, "Clearly with Wright disclosing that they are fighting over 800 lawsuits relating to their hip products, this litigation is shaping up to look like many other metal-on-metal hip litigations that we have recently come across. We urge patients with these implants to see doctors to see if they are having elevated blood poisoning from the metal components and if so to seek legal counsel immediately at the first finding of this. Time to file lawsuit claims against the manufacturer could be limited in some jurisdictions."

Although these cases are recent and growing, Wright Medical is not new to lawsuits. According to Drug Watch, an investigation had started in 2007 and the company was sued by the federal government for "questionable business practices involving bribing doctors to use their products." Wright Medical agreed to pay $7.9 million in fines in 2011 as an avoidance to admit any misconduct. Wright had also settled two Profemur lawsuits in 2013 just before they were set to go to trial. According to Drug Watch who referenced a report from the Australian National Joint Registry, "1 in every 9 patients who received a PROFEMUR Z stem has been forced to undergo revision surgery due to device failure. Complications such as corrosion, femoral neck fracture and fretting were reported."
