- Smith & Nephew Hip Liner Recall
Smith & Nephew announced that it is pulling its R3 Acetabular System metal hip liner from the market. According to the company’s website, even though there was not one single reason why the liner wasn’t performing up to the company’s standards, patients have reported infection, metal sensitivity, dislocation, loosening/lysis and fracture.
If you or a loved one has been implanted with the optional all-metal liner for the R3 Acetabular System hip device, you may be eligible to pursue legal recourse.

Metal-On-Metal Hip Devices
Due to rising concerns over the safety of metal-on-metal hip implants, the FDA announced that it would be scheduling a two-day review of the devices. Although Smith & Nephew claim that their recall was not prompted by reports of metal poisoning, our defective medical device lawyers are seeking anyone who has been implanted with the recalled liner to determine if legal recourse is an option.
Smith & Nephew is withdrawing the metal liner component as a precautionary measure. The liner was first introduced in Europe and Australia in 2007 and was globally-launched in 2009. Since its introduction to the market, about 7,700 metal liners have been implanted in patients; most of which were used in total hip replacements.
The voluntary recall of Smith & Nephew’s metal hip liner will add to concerns about the safety of metal-on-metal hips. Originally, metal-on-metal hips were developed to be more durable than traditional hip implants. However, in light of recent concerns surrounding Johnson & Johnson’s recall of the Depuy hip implant devices in 2010 in addition to this most recent recall, this may not be the case.

Sophia H is very helpful.
A friend of mine recommended Phillips Law and I’m so grateful, because they were so wonderful, so down to earth, so professional. I felt like they were family.
Phillips law group has an amazing staff and i recommend them to everyone.
Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!
I just wanted to thank Phillips law Group and Vanessa Rodriguez for all the help that she did for my daughter’s case. She was involved in her first accident and she needed the help to deal with these adjusters. Thank you again.
I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
