Wright Medical Technology, Inc. Announces Lawsuit Update
May 17 13
Kent Klaudt, an injury lawyer at the national plaintiffs' law firm Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP, announced that Lieff Cabraser released a video on the injuries suffered by hip replacement patients who received the Profemur Z hip made with titanium metal alloy, manufactured by Wright Medical Technology, Inc. While Wright Medical never issued a recall of its Profemur Z titanium hip implant, far too many patients implanted with the device prior to 2009 have suffered complete failure of the device, requiring often painful revision surgery. Wright Medical marketed the Profemur Z hip replacement system as being a more durable product than other artificial hip implants, and one especially suited for persons with active lifestyles. Injury lawsuits against Wright Medical charge that as early as the year 2000, when Wright Medical first sold the Profemur Z system with a titanium neck, the company was aware that its titanium components would present an unreasonably high risk of fracture and failure, particularly in physically active and/or heavier persons.
