Recently, Zimmer knee implants have been under heavy scrutiny for reports alleging the devices can cause serious bone fracturing in some patients. Patients who have suffered from this complication often call us to ask if they may be eligible to file a lawsuit against the company who produced the defective device. Our lawyers can obtain your medical records to determine if a lawsuit is a viable option. In many cases, we do file suit against Zimmer for failing to produce a safe and effective knee replacement device.
Defective Zimmer Knee Implant Recalls
Zimmer produces many different knee products, many of which have seen voluntary recall by the company, or FDA government recall due to defective components. Unfortunately, Zimmer’s track record for providing safe and reliable knee replacement devices is not very impressive. Bone fracture injuries have been occurring at high rates in patients who received the Zimmer Natural-Knee II Durasul All-Poly Patella, a device that was recalled in 2012. When this recall was announced, over 100,000 devices had already been implanted in patients.
The Natural-Knee II Durasul All-Poly Patella is the implant made by Zimmer that is most associated with bone fracturing, leading to device failure. There are, however, other knee products made by the company that have seen similar failures. If you are unsure if your device has been recalled, or if you wish to learn more about your options, you should contact an attorney specializing in these types of lawsuits.
