Terrance and Rebecca Allore have filed a product liability lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan against Wright Medical Europe, Wright Medical Group, and Wright Medical Technology.

The lawsuit alleges that the Profemur hip replacement devices manufactured by Wright are defective, and are dangerous to the health patients, and failed to meet established performance standards.

Allore had the Profemur Total Hip System implanted in January 2008, and experienced a catastrophic failure in November 2010 when the femoral neck of the implant broke. Allore was forced to undergo a replacement surgery. A growing number of lawsuits against the Wright Profemur device have been filed across the country, with many citing the same defect. The complaints say the device causes serious pain, and has forced many people to undergo risky revision surgery.

According to the lawsuit, the Wright Profemur Total Hip System was approved by the FDA 510(k) approval process, which allows a product to reach the market without meticulous testing, if it is substantially equivalent to a product on the market.

The lawsuit alleges defective design, defective manufacturing, misrepresentation, negligence, breach of warranty, failure to warn and fraud.
