A settlement has now been reached November of 2014, but claimants must register their claim by December 14, 2014 to participate in the settlement. If you believe you qualify for this settlement, it is crucial to contact us as soon as possible. Certain documents are required to be submitted for eligibility and some can take time to collect.

Those claimants that meet these requirements can qualify to receive a base settlement of $300,000. If you have not received a revision surgery, you may still qualify for a settlement if you were unable to go through revision surgery because it was deemed medically dangerous for you to do so. Certain restrictions may apply to the amount you receive, which can be explained by one of our experienced class action attorneys.
