...the company was aware that there were structural problems with the implants and did nothing about them...
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) June 12, 2013
Page Bradley, a personal injury law firm based in St. Louis, MO, announced this week that it is reviewing claims for clients who have been injured as a result of allegedly defective knee replacement systems made by Zimmer, Inc.
In recent years, Zimmer, Inc. has recalled a number of its products. According to the FDA's Enforcement Report for November 10, 2010, the manufacturer recalled 65,000 NexGen MIS Tibial Components in September 2010 after numerous complaints of loose and dislocated NexGen knee joints.* A few months later, in December 2010, Zimmer, Inc. issued an additional recall of its NexGen Legacy Posterior Stabilized (LPS) Flex implants, according to Drugwatch.com.**
Some patients with these artificial joint components may have discovered how painful faulty knee replacement systems can be. According to a June 2010 report in the New York Times, reported symptoms include pain, swelling, infection, implant dislocation, unstable knee joints, stiffness, and arthritis. In addition, many patients have required second knee surgeries to correct the problems allegedly caused by Zimmer’s devices.***
"Another issue is that the company may have been aware that there were structural problems with the implants and did nothing about them until the public's discovery was inevitable," said John Page, a founding partner at Page Bradley.****
The personal injury attorneys at Page Bradley have assembled an experienced team to review potential cases. The team is well versed on the criteria needed to maximize the chance of recovery.
