New York, NY - January 10th, 2014 - Metal-on-metal hip implants have been in the news because of the settlement of lawsuits stemming from their serious alleged side effects, such as the need for revision surgery. Now, more than ever, implantees need accurate, updated information about side effects and lawsuit eligibility. The Rottenstein Law Group LLP provides this via several hip implant websites, including the Smith & Nephew Hip Lawsuit Center, designed to help those looking to file Smith & Nephew hip replacement lawsuits.
Following a recent report from the New York Times about DePuy Orthopaedics’ multibillion dollar ASR settlement and a Wall Street Journal story about Stryker’s announcement that it could set aside more than $1 billion for ABG II and Rejuvenate litigation, the Rottenstein Law Group LLP highlights the importance of hip implantees having access to information about similar products, such as Smith & Nephew’s R3, which was recalled between 2009 and 2012 following reports of fractures, infections and dislocations, according to a Reuters report at the time.
Plaintiffs have brought lawsuits against Smith & Nephew, with one of the more recent involving a New York woman, according to court documents (Susan Simon v. Smith & Nephew Inc.; case no. 151456/2013, Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of New York).
The Rottenstein Law Group LLP encourages those who believe their R3 implant harmed them to visit its FAQ page to learn more about Smith & Nephew lawsuits, the recall and side effects, and how to contact an attorney for a free consultation.
