Bernstein Liebhard LLP announces the launch of http://www.zimmerkneelawsuit2015.com, a new website intended to provide the public with updated information regarding the recent Zimmer Persona Knee recall. On March 3, 2015, Zimmer recalled more than 11,600 Persona Trabecular Metal Tibial Plate components due to a higher than expected rate of complaints. According to the company, 36% of the complaints involved asymptomatic radiolucent lines or instances of implant loosening that resulted in revision surgery. *
“The Zimmer Persona Knee components included in this recall were distributed to hospitals across the country.** Because of its potentially widespread impact, we felt it necessary to create a website that would allow the public to access up-to-date information pertaining to this important matter,” says Sandy A. Liebhard, a partner at Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is seeking to hear from individuals who may have experienced implant loosening, need for revision surgery, and other complications that may be associated with the recalled Persona Trabecular Metal Tibial Plate components.
