Unsafe Medical Devices

Currently, our firm is investigating injuries caused by the following Unsafe Medical Devices & implants:

Metal-on-Metal Hip Implants

Our firm is currently investigating potential lawsuits on behalf of those who received a Metal-on-Metal (MoM) Hips and had to either have it removed, or are having side effects such as pain, popping, grinding or other difficulties.

Metal-on-metal hip systems have been marketed by many manufacturers as a better alternative to older ceramic and plastic artificial hips. Unfortunately, on many of these hips, the metal components start grinding together, shaving off dangerous metal debris into patient’s bodies.

The side effects of this hip failure include:

  • Pain & Swelling in the hip
  • Fatigue
  • Walking difficulty
  • Lack of flexibility
  • Popping, grinding sensation or squeaking of the hip implant

Biomet® Metal-on-Metal Hips

Our firm is currently investigating potential lawsuits on behalf of those who received a Biomet® M2a Magnum Hip and had to either have it removed, or are having side effects such as pain, popping, grinding or other difficulties.

The M2a Magnum Hip System is a metal-on-metal hip replacement implant manufactured by Biomet®.

The company marketed the metal-on-metal hip system as a better alternative to older ceramic and plastic artificial hips. Unfortunately, on many of these hips, the metal components start grinding together, shaving off dangerous metal debris into patient’s bodies.

The side effects of this hip failure include:

  • Pain & Swelling in the hip
  • Fatigue
  • Walking difficulty
  • Lack of flexibility
  • Popping, grinding sensation or squeaking of the hip implant

Mirena® IUD Migration

The personal injury and class action department is led by senior partner, Ralph M. Guito III. The combination of his experience, client-focus and consistent results has earned Ralph a reputation for achieving multi-million dollar verdicts & settlements for families who have suffered serious injury or the loss of a loved one.

Mirena® is an intrauterine device (IUD) that is used as a contraceptive for females (lasts up to five years). Manufactured by Bayer Pharmaceuticals, more than 2 million women in the U.S. have or have utilized Mirena®. Unfortunately, many of these women have had to have the tiny T-shaped IUD device surgically removed from their uterus. This is because the device either embedded into their uterus or moved to other parts of the body.

Reported Mirena® Side Effects

  • Embedding into the uterine wall or lining
  • Migration into the abdomen or other organs
  • Perforation of the uterine wall or cervix
  • Pregnancy (even with Mirena® inserted into uterus)
  • Ectopic pregnancy: one in 1,000 users
  • Infection and sepsis
  • Ovarian cysts: 12 percent of users
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)

Life-Threatening Complications

  • Cramping
  • Abdominal or pelvic pain
  • Frequent or recurrent UTIs (urinary tract infections)
  • Spotting or bleeding
