The firm is actively filing Biomet hip lawsuits on behalf of those who have suffered serious complications allegedly caused by the metal-on-metal hip implant system.
(PRWEB) September 03, 2013
A judge in Indiana federal district court denied a Biomet bid to throw out a lawsuit against the company on Aug. 28, according to court documents. The Rottenstein Law Group LLP encourages those interested in more information on Biomet hip side effects and lawsuits to visit its Biomet Hip Replacement Lawsuit Center.
Plaintiff Leslie Caccia alleges in the suit that his Biomet implant was faulty and caused him bone and tissue damage, necessitating corrective surgery, according to court documents. The lawsuit is one of nearly 600 Biomet M2a hip implant lawsuits pending in a federal consolidation of cases (In Re: Biomet M2a Magnum Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation; MDL-2391, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Indiana).
Biomet asserted in its motion that federal law preempted Caccia from filing suit because a component of the implant was included in a clinical trial, according to the documents. Judge Robert Miller denied the claim, saying that it did not apply because Caccia was not involved in the trial.
