Hip Products – Biomet

Chipman v. Biomet, Inc. et al

Nova Scotia Supreme Court File: Hfx No. 426867

Wagners filed a proposed class action on behalf of Canadians implanted with a Biomet Metal on Metal Hip Implant System between 1998 to the date of certification. The action was filed on May 1, 2014 in the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia in Halifax.

It is alleged that Biomet’s metal-on-metal hip implant system fails prematurely, thereby causing bone dislocation, metallosis and the need for further surgery. The class action has been filed against five different entities of the Biomet group.

The proposed class action seeks damages for individuals who required surgery to correct the defective hip implant.

Wagners is presently accepting enquiries from residents of Canada who have suffered adverse effects, debilitating injuries or permanent disability as a result of being fitted with a Biomet Metal-on-Metal Hip Implant.

If you, or a member of your family, have suffered problems or effects as a result of the Biomet Implant and injury or other losses have resulted, you may be eligible for inclusion as a Class Member in the proposed class action lawsuit.
