San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 11, 2013
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, updated the website recently and they are now actively providing expert opinion in view of the recent news on Zimmer NexGen Knee lawsuits. According to court documents, on December 3rd, 2012, a woman filed a lawsuit in New York Western District Court (case no. 6:2012cv06658) alleging she suffered injuries from her Zimmer NexGen Knee implant. The NexGen Knee is manufactured by Zimmer Holdings a medical device manufacturer specializing in orthopedic implants. In the lawsuit plaintiff claims she was implanted with the Zimmer NexGen Knee in June 2005 and after surgery she started experiencing complications and pain that eventually led to revision surgery.
Her lawsuit was added to the Zimmer NexGen knee failure multidistrict litigation (MDL No. 2272) which is currently ongoing in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Illinois. This MDL consolidates lawsuits involving several Zimmer NexGen knee models: the CR-Flex, the GSF CR-Flex, the GSF LPS-Flex, the LPS-Flex and the MIS Tibial. AttorneyOne will provide all latest information on potential Zimmer NexGen KneeRecall lawsuits.
On November 26th, 2012, the US FDA announced a class II recall of the NexGen Stemmed Nonaugmentable Tibial Component, initiated by Zimmer, due to the devices being processed through a manufacturing cleaning operation that was operating outside of the validated parameters. As a result, the devices may contain residual particulate from the manufacturing process and the risks include allergic reaction due to the foreign material or late onset allergic reaction and accelerated polyethylene wear caused by third body particles.
