This class proceeding concerns allegations that Smith & Nephew Inc. and related companies were negligent in the research, design, manufacture, regulatory licensing, sale and post-market monitoring of the Smith & Nephew R3 Metal Liner Component of the R3 Acetabular System. When the R3 Metal Liner is used with a metal femoral head, the implant is a metal-on-metal hip replacement.
This proposed class proceeding is brought on behalf of all persons implanted with the Smith & Nephew R3 Acetabular System containing the R3 Metal Liner Component who were resident in Canada at the time of the implant.
If you were implanted with a Smith & Nephew hip implant containing an R3 Metal Liner, please call 1-888-723-4303 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you were implanted with a different device, you are not a member of the proposed class and will not qualify for any recovery obtained for class members. This means that should you wish to pursue a legal action, you will need to contact and retain a different law firm.
