San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 21, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Maxy Payne and people who filed a Zimmer NexGen KneeRecall lawsuit. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
According to court documents, on August 27th, 2012, Illinois resident Maxy Payne filed a lawsuit in Illinois Northern District Court (case no. 1:2012cv06855) alleging her Zimmer’s NexGen Knee components (the Zimmer NexGen LPS-Flex and the Zimmer NexGen MIS Tibia) caused her Zimmer knee failure leading to revision surgery. The NexGen Knee is manufactured by Zimmer Holdings a medical device manufacturer specializing in orthopedic implants. In the lawsuit Payne claims she was implanted with the Zimmer NexGen Knee components in 2010 and after the surgery she began experiencing severe complications with her knee. She had to undergo revision surgery to replace the allegedly defective device in 2011.
Several lawsuits have been consolidated in the Zimmer NexGen knee failure multidistrict litigation (MDL No. 2272), currently ongoing in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Illinois.
