USA Smith & Nephew BHR Lawsuit

Kevin Website photo_finalThere are a large number of people who have suffered from adverse effects as a result of failed or failing BHR implants. The National Joint Registry of England and Wales has shown that the 42mm femoral head component has a 7 year revision rate of 11.76%.

It is understood that no class action is being brought in the US at present against Smith and Nephew.

Irwin Mitchell LLP, one of the largest law firms in the UK and its defective product specialists are putting together a list of US individuals who are interested in pursuing a claim against Smith & Nephew in the US.

Those who wish to be added to the list will have been provided with a BHR 42mm femoral head and have had revision surgery or will require revision surgery due to suffering from an adverse reaction to the metal debris.
