$4.5 Million Jury Verdict Secured for Failed Wright Hip Implant Plaintiff

In handing down a $4.5 million verdict,  a Los Angeles Superior Court jury found Wright Medical Technology Inc. responsible for the defective manufacturing of its Profemur R metal-on-metal hip implant that caused plaintiff Alan Warner to suffer severe pain. This high-damage verdict may be echoed in future trials over similar metal-on-metal hip implants, as Wright faces over 1,000 other lawsuits pertaining to its various types of hip implants—many of which have been consolidated in Los Angeles County Superior Court and the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia.
