Wright Medical to pay $11M in Hip Implant Lawsuit

Share this post:

A jury has ordered Wright Medical to pay $11 million to a woman who alleged that she suffered from a defective hip implant. The award, which includes $1 million in compensatory damages and $10 million in punitive damages, was granted to the plaintiff at a recent bellwether trial. The lawsuit was filed by the woman back in 2013 and alleged that her Conserve hip implant came loose and caused tissue damage. The Atlanta jury ruled that the plaintiff had a defective hip implant and that Wright misrepresented the device’s safety.
