Biomet hip replacement patients who have suffered injury and harm from the defective hip implant will be getting their day in court. U.S. District Judge Robert L. Miller has outlined the selection process for the first cases in the Re: Biomet M2A Magnum Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation. The December 10, 2013 Court Order indicates that the first Biomet hip lawsuit trials will likely take place in June, August, October and December of 2015. The best representative cases will be tried to a jury.
All of the Biomet lawsuits consolidated before Judge Miller contain common allegations and issues of fact, and were coordinated for pretrial proceedings in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Indiana. Claimants argue that the defendant’s metal-on-metal hip implants, including the M2A Magnum, suffer design defects and failed prematurely, causing them to suffer serious bodily injuries and financial losses. More than 900 Biomet hip replacement lawsuits have been filed.
