Our Michigan hip replacement lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. are handling cases for patients suffering from serious complications, such as metallosis (metal poisoning), tissue and bone destruction, continual pain, or need for additional revision surgery after having a Wright hip replacement device implanted. When a patient suffers significant complications due to the defectiveness of a Wright MOM (Conserve & Profemur) Total Hip System implant, it can give rise to a lawsuit. The Wright MOM Hip Systems (Conserve & Profemur) includes the Conserve Plus Cup, the Conserve Total Femoral Head, the Wright Modular Femoral Neck, and the Profemur E Cementless Stem. These defective metal-on-metal Wright hip replacement lawsuits seek compensation for pain and suffering damages as well as payment of medical expenses incurred due to the defective hip implant and cost of future surgeries if needed.
Sue Wright For Defective Hip Implant
The Wright Profemur & Conserve hip replacement devices were approved in the U.S. as a “substantial equivalent” to an existing medical device, which allowed Wright Medical Group to introduce the hip replacement without conducting severe pre-market approval testing. However, since these hip devices have been implanted, there have been many accounts of design defects causing significant pain and complications to patients, including additional revision surgeries to account for the defectiveness of the hip implant.
Patients who have had a Wright hip replacement implanted and suffer serious complications do have legal rights and may be able to sue Wright Medical Group for their injuries suffered. The lawsuit would seek damages for their pain and suffering as well as any medical costs incurred and future surgeries if required due to the defective nature of the Wright hip implant.
Hip replacement devices include a number of Wright Total Hip System implant components including the:
- Converse Plus Cup
- Conserve Total Femoral Head
- Wright Modular Femoral Neck
- Profemur E Cementless Stem
