New York, New York (PRWEB) April 30, 2014
Wright hip lawsuits (http://www.consumerinjurylawyers.com/wright-conserve-hip-replacement.html) involving Wright Medical Group, Inc.s Conserve Hip Replacement System continue to move forward in courts around the U.S., Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to an Order issued on April 28th in the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Missouri, a woman who allegedly suffered serious injuries due to the loosening of her Conserve hip implant will be able to pursue a strict liability design defect claim against the company. The Court declined to dismiss the claim after determining that a defense motion for dismissal was premature. The Court also delayed a decision on the dismissal of a fraudulent concealment claim contained in the Wright hip lawsuit, and granted the Plaintiff 30 days to amend the complaint. (Anastasi v. Wright Medical Technology, et al., No. 14-00053)

We will be monitoring this litigation closely, says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is actively filing Wright hip lawsuits, and continues to offer free legal evaluations to individuals who were allegedly injured due to Wright Conserve hip replacements, as well as Wright Conserve hips.
Wright Hip Lawsuits
According to court documents, the Missouri case is just one of dozens of Wright hip lawsuits that have been filed in courts around the country by individuals who were allegedly harmed by a Wright Conserve hip replacement. At least 78 such claims have been consolidated in a multidistrict litigation now underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Georgia. All of these Wright hip lawsuits similarly allege that the Conserves metal-on-metal design can cause the device to shed dangerous amounts of metal ions into recipients tissue and blood stream. Plaintiffs further allege that this occurrence can result in metallosis, pseudotumor formation, failure of the hip, and other serious complications.

Court records also indicate that a number of Wright hip lawsuits have been filed in the U.S. on behalf of patients who are alleged to have suffered serious complications due to the Wright Profemur Total Hip Implant System. These include a case that was settled in December 2013, just before it was scheduled to go to trial in the U.S. District Court, Middle District of Georgia this past December. (Courson, et ux. v. Wright Medical Technology, Inc., No. 5:12-cv-173) Court papers filed in March 2013 in U.S. District Court, Northern District of California indicated a settlement had also been struck in a similar claim that was pending in that jurisdiction. (Tucker, et al. v. Wright Medical Technology, Inc., et al., No. 4:11-cv- 03086)
