Biomet M2a and M2a-Magnum® Hip Implants

Biomet’s line of M2a and M2a-Magnum metal-on-metal hip implants has been found to cause serious health problems for many patients using these hip implants. As a result of defects and implant failures, the implant’s manufacturer, Biomet, may be held responsible for a suffering patient’s injury expenses. By filing a personal injury lawsuit, these patients may be able to recover their medical expenses as well as other injury-related costs they’ve incurred.

If you or someone you love has required a metal-on-metal hip implant replacement because of a faulty Biomet product, there may be legal options available to win financial compensation for that injury. To learn more about the process of filing a claim and how we may be able to help, contact a Milwaukee product liability lawyer of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. today by calling 800-242-2874.

Consequences of a Biomet Hip Implant Failure

The metal-on-metal implants produced under the M2a and M2a-Magnum line of hip implants have been linked to implant failure and metallosis. Metallosis occurs when the body is damaged due to metal poisoning, causing tissue around the implant to die, walking to become difficult and painful, and possible nerve damage as a result. Because of these conditions, a person may be faced with the following healthcare concerns:

  • Expenses for undergoing implant replacement surgery
  • Physical therapy or recovery needed after the replacement surgery
  • Direct care for the symptoms and consequences of metallosis
  • Time away from work or family due to intense medical care needs

The financial consequences of these implants’ failures can prove too much for many households to handle. However, there may be financial compensation available from the product’s manufacturer that can cover the costs associated with a defective implant.
