Orlando, FL (PRWEB) March 30, 2012
The law offices of Todd Miner recently announced that they are now accepting personal injury and medical malpractice cases for Florida residents and patients who have received Zimmer hip replacement parts during hip replacement surgery. Beginning immediately, victims who think they have a case can contact Attorney Miner’s office at 407-420-4040 or visit his Orlando Personal Injury Attorney website.
Zimmer hip replacement cases arise as a result of defective or faulty hip replacement hardware used during a hip replacement surgery. Zimmer Holdings, Inc., the creators of the parts, announced in 2008 that sales of the parts would cease, due to patient complaints ranging from mild discomfort to extreme pain. Those affected often complain of pain when walking, when bearing weight on the hip, or when getting up from a seated position. These symptoms may occur 24 to 48 months after the procedure.
Patients have been confused over which hip replacement parts are faulty. According to The New York Times, The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) did not approve the Zimmer hip replacement resurfacing system, due to high levels of metal in patient blood. However, Zimmer replacement parts, sold under the name "Durom," were used in traditional hip replacement surgeries from 2006 until The United States pulled them from the market in 2008. Even though this halted sales on the parts, Zimmer, Inc. has yet to officially recall them.
Patients who have experienced the previous mentioned side effects with Zimmer hip replacement parts should seek an experienced attorney. Orlando personal injury attorney Todd Miner has represented thousands of individuals since 1993.
