A Canada-wide settlement was reached and approved on June 26, 2020 by the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia in the Wright Profemer Hip Implant System Class Action. The lawsuit was initiated alleging that the Wright Profemur Hip Implant System was defective, and that it failed prematurely.
The defendants have agreed to pay up to a total of $8,250,000 CDN, depending upon the number of approved claims that are submitted. This amount includes payment of legal fees, claims administration costs and payment to public health insurers for their subrogated claims.
The settlement applies to all Canadian residents who were implanted after February 2001 with the Wright Profemur Hip Implant System manufactured by the Defendants, and who have experienced a fracture of the Wright Profemur Hip Implant System, requiring revision surgery. Excluded are those who previously opted out of the class action.
To obtain compensation under the Settlement, you must submit a claim form and required supporting documentation with the Claims Administrator on or before the Claims Deadline of October 8, 2020. Click here to download the claim form.
