Chipman v. Biomet, Inc. et al

Nova Scotia Supreme Court File: Hfx No. 426867

On May 1, 2014 Wagners filed a proposed class proceeding in the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia on behalf of residents of Canada who have been implanted with a Biomet MoM Hip Implant System at any time between 1998 to the date of certification of this proceeding.

Recently published information has revealed that some of Biomet’s metal-on-metal hip implant systems fail 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 following documents concerning the class action which has been filed by Wagners in relation to the defective Biomet hip implant product are available for viewing in PDF format:

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.
