Between 2003 and 2015, 3M manufactured the Dual-Ended Combat Arms™ Earplugs that were distributed to thousands of military personnel. In a recent settlement agreement with the United States Department of Justice, 3M agreed to pay $9.1 million to resolve allegations that they knowingly sold defective earplugs to the U.S. military. These settlement proceeds will not be distributed to military personnel. Our law firm, along with experienced referral law firm partners, are pursuing civil lawsuits to obtain compensation for hearing loss damages.

Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacements

Although many hip replacement systems have caused serious problems, Metal-on-Metal hip replacements have been associated with the most serious side effects, including a significantly higher rate of failure compared to other hip implants. The design of these devices results in metal components rubbing together which can release metal fragments into the blood stream and cause metal poisoning and premature failure.

In two recent 2016 cases, 11 people were awarded over $1.5B after their Depuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implants failed.

Stryker Corp. has recently agreed to compensate patients who had surgery to replace their Rejuvenate and/or ABG II modular-neck hip stems a base award of $300,000 for each revised hip.

Types of Metal Hip Implant Systems Include:

  • DePuy ASR (recalled)
  • DePuy Pinnacle
  • Encore
  • Stryker ABG II (recalled)
  • Stryker Rejuvenate (recalled)
  • Stryker Accolade
  • Biomet M2a
  • Smith & Nephew Birmingham
  • Smith & Nephew R3 Acetabular System
  • Wright Conserve
  • Wright Dynasty
  • Wright ProFemur
  • Zimmer Durom Cup
  • Zimmer Versys

What’s the problem with these Hip Implants?

Many types of metal-on-metal hip replacements are made of chromium-cobalt. When parts of the hip implant grind together, particles of these metals can wear off and accumulate around the implant potentially causing inflammation, pain, pseudo-tumors, bone death, and other complications that may require revision surgery.

According to an FDA warning regarding soft tissue damage from this metal-on-metal grinding:

“Soft tissue damage may lead to pain, implant loosening, device failure and the need for revision surgery (a surgical procedure where the implant is removed and another is put in its place). Some of the metal ions released will enter the bloodstream and travel to other parts of the body, where they may cause symptoms or illnesses elsewhere in the body (systemic reactions).”
