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.
