A growing number of metal-on-metal (MoM) hip replacement patients are reporting serious problems with their Wright CONSERVE® MoM hip replacement systems. Manufactured by Wright Medical, Inc, the Wright CONSERVE® is a modular implant, comprised of a femoral stem, modular neck, and femoral head, mated with an artificial acetabular cup.
Burg Simpson shareholder Peter W. Burg has a leadership role in the California JCCP. Active in the Wright MoM litigation – both the Conserve Cup loosening cases and the ProFemur neck fracture cases, Burg Simpson is working with a group of lawyers who are pursing the Conserve Cup cases in a consolidated action in California through the JCCP process. There is also a Multi District Litigation pending in Georgia for the Conserve Cup cases; however, Burg Simpson is concentrating its resources in the California JCCP.
More than a dozen cases have been filed to date against Wright alleging failure as a result of cup loosening and metallosis. A petition for MDL treatment of the Wright CONSERVE® hip litigation was filed in November of 2011, and on February 8, 2012 the Judicial Panel on Multi District Litigation transferred all cases to Judge William Duffy, Dr. in the Northern District of Georgia (in Atlanta) for pre-trial proceedings. Additionally, there are cases pending against Wright Medical in California Sate Courts that have been coordinated in front of one Judge.
ACT NOW. YOU MAY BE ENTITLED TO MONEY DAMAGES.
If you or a loved one has experienced serious pain or required corrective surgery following the failure of a Wright Medical artificial hip implant, you may be entitled to compensation. It is important that you contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible. If you wait, evidence that could help establish your case may be lost, damaged, or even destroyed. In addition, statutes of limitations put strict time limits in place by which lawsuits must be filed. These time limits vary depending on the state in which you live.
