Defective metal-on-metal hip implants may result in serious injury

Beasley Allen attorney Navan Ward visits the Beasley Allen Report this week to discuss ongoing litigation surrounding metal-on-metal hip implants. He talks with show host Gibson Vance about serious injuries linked to these hip implants, produced and marketed by a number of manufacturers. Navan is the firm’s lead attorney on the metal-on-metal hip implant litigation, which involves thousands of victims who have defective hip implants causing severe pain, metal poisoning, and in some cases revision surgery. These defective hip devices are manufactured by various companies, such as Johnson & Johnson and DePuy Orthopedics, among others. Navan was selected to the Plaintiffs Steering Committee for the DePuy Hip Implant Recall Multi-District Litigation (MDL), as well as to the Plaintiffs Steering Committee (PSC) for the Pinnacle hip replacement MDL. He also serves as Co-Chair to the DePuy Metal-on-Metal Hip Implant Litigation Group for the American Association for Justice (AAJ). Navan also has been selected to serve on the Plaintiffs Steering Committee (PSC) for the Biomet M2a Magnum Hip Implants Product Liability Litigation. Hip implants should last as long as 20 years or more. Many of the metal-on-metal hip implants being investigated in this litigation have been found to fail within as little as five years.
