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.

I can't speak highly enough about the lawyers at Wagners who represented me for injuries from not one but two motor vehicle accidents. They were very professional and approachable. I was kept informed of all steps in the process and all of my inquiries were responded to and dealt with very quickly. The lawyers are knowledgeable and showed great empathy for what I was going through. I would recommend this firm to anyone!
