Premature Hip Implant Failure leads to $3.5M Verdict. Recently, a U.S. Court of Appeals denied an appeal from Zimmer Biomet for a new trial after a $3.5 million hip implant lawsuit verdict over premature hip implant failure.

Four years ago, in 2020, an Iowan federal jury awarded $3.55 million to Lori Nicholson and her husband Willis for severe personal injuries from the company’s much-maligned and controversial M2a Magnum metal-on-metal hip implant that caused premature hip implant failure.

The jury determined that the M2a Magnum model was defectively designed, and that led to premature hip failure. Around the same time, a federal judge in Missouri granted a $21 million judgment in a case against the M2A Magnum, for similar reasons, namely premature hip implant failure.

Ozempic, Hero or Villain? In this article, I will unpack the data to determine whether Ozempic and its ilk are heroes or villains.

A hero by definition is a person or thing who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. A villain, on the other hand, doesn’t exemplify these qualities and is, in fact, the antithesis of the hero, and opposes the hero.

Ozempic, a Bitter Pill to Swallow. Knowledgeable folks and users of Ozempic will know right off the bat that Ozempic is a weekly injection and not a pill. So why the title, “Ozempic, a Bitter Pill to Swallow?” because there is no equivalent in modern parlance for the idiom that refers to a bitter injection.

But this is a play on words because a bitter pill to swallow is an expression from the 1600s that refers to something unpleasant or hurtful that is hard to accept. A bitter pill to swallow is the naked truth that people do not want to face but one that cannot be avoided.

Like a pill, it must be swallowed, these unpleasant facts must be taken in. And Ozempic is indeed a bitter pill to swallow, as will be explained later, this idiom is not meant to be taken literally and in fact, its use is both unpleasant and hurtful because of the profound side effects.
