Two companies, Zimmer, Inc. and DePuy Orthopedics (owned by Johnson & Johnson) have been flooded with a slew of lawsuits over their defective knee and hip implant devices.
Lawsuits against Zimmer over its NexGen Knee System and Natural Knee Systems allege that these defective implant components loosen after surgery and cause a great deal of pain, swelling, loss of range of motion, loss of mobility, and other damages. The result of these defective components is that patients often must undergo a painful revision surgery. The lawsuits over Zimmer’s NexGen Knee System have been consolidated into multidistrict federal court litigation in the Northern District of Illinois, while lawsuits over Zimmer’s Natural Knee Systems are still being filed in federal and state courts across the country.
Lawsuits against DePuy over its ASR Hip System and Pinnacle Hip System have both reached the status of consolidation into multidistrict federal court litigation. Lawsuits over the ASR Hip System are taking place in the Northern District of Ohio, while lawsuits over the Pinnacle Hip System have been consolidated into the Northern District of Texas. These lawsuits allege that the metal-on-metal design of the implants is defective, causing great pain and adverse effects to patients with such implants. Further, like the Zimmer knee products, the defective design of the DePuy implants necessitates painful revision surgeries.
If you have undergone knee or hip replacement surgery with Zimmer or DePuy products, and you have experienced pain, suffering, swelling, loss of enjoyment of life, mental anguish, loss of mobility, decreased range of motion, and/or a revision surgery, you will have enough to deal with – let us worry about your compensation. If you are planning to undergo a revision surgery, please take steps to ensure that the defective device being removed is preserved.
