Medical device recalls are unlike any other product recall. This isn't like throwing away a bottle of pain relievers. This is something that may require surgery and those that are adversely affected deserve compensation.
St. Louis (Vocus/PRWEB) March 25, 2011
Even though both Onder, Shelton, O'Leary & Peterson and Langdon & Emison are experienced at handling product recalls and defective products lawsuits, the number of people seeking information on the Zimmer NexGen knee recall has been far larger than the law firms anticipated.
According to the FDA recall, Zimmer, Inc., an artificial joint replacement systems manufacturer, first announced the recall of NexGen MIS Tibial knee replacement system components this past fall after concluding that the component could cause some knee replacement systems to loosen, and in some of those cases require a revision surgery. The recall has led to the filing of numerous Zimmer NexGen knee lawsuits and articles appearing in major media and medical publications regarding allegations of problems with NexGen knee replacement systems that were not part of the recall.
The web site http://www.ZimmerNexGenKneeRecallLawsuits.com offers information about the NexGen MIS tibial knee replacement system component recall as well as summarizing what prominent publications and medical journals have reported regarding the allegations by some orthopedic surgeons of higher than usual failure rates in select Zimmer NexGen Knee Replacement Systems.
