If you or someone you know has suffered complications due to Zimmer Knee Implants, the East Texas law firm of Roberts & Roberts wants you to know that you are not alone. You could be entitled to substantial compensation for injuries, pain, and suffering resulting from these implants.
About Zimmer Knee Implants
The implants in question were marketed to numerous active patients who were seeking to have a greater range of motion than they were getting with their current implants or opted for them as a first course of action for knee replacement. A number of the devices ultimately failed, which led to a number of lawsuits.
Zimmer Manufacturing is the world’s largest manufacturer of knee implants. It has sold over 3 million of the popular NexGen knee replacement solutions since 1995. The High Flex version of the NexGen implant was introduced in 2001 and promised to add to that effect of the device by providing patients a greater range of motion.
As of today, Zimmer is looking at over 1,000 lawsuits with litigants complaining that its High Flex products have led to an increase of pain and discomfort, the loosening of the devices, as well as premature failure. Costly and painful revision surgery could be necessary to remove and replace defective implant devices.
