Smith & Nephew Metal-on-Metal (MoM) Hip Implant Class Action Lawsuit
Smith & Nephew hip replacement lawsuits because the manufacturer’s metal-on-metal devices led to metallosis and other serious complications. The company recalled 2,000 of the devices in 2016 and several thousand more of another model in 2012-13. Studies have found that the wear between metal parts can release metal ions internally. Elevated metal levels in the body can cause a condition called metallosis which can lead to other serious complications.
This class-action lawsuit alleges that Smith & Nephew was negligent in the research, design, manufacture, regulatory licensing, sale and post-market monitoring of the Smith & Nephew metal-on-metal (MoM) BIRMINGHAM System and R3 LINER devices. This class description would cover everyone with Birmingham MoM devices manufactured by Smith & Nephew.
