Overview

In October 2014, ConforMIS, Inc. was hit with a lawsuit (PDF) in federal court in Texas. The plaintiff, 65 year-old Mary Jane Martine, needed surgery to remove two defective iTotal G2 implants in both of her knees. She had one implant for only four months; the other for about one year.

Lawyers accuse ConforMIS of negligence for failing to adequately test or design that iTotal G2. They claim the femoral implant puts too much pressure on the tibial tray, which increases the risk of spacer dislodgment and loosening. According to the lawsuit, ConforMIS knew about the problem and tried to fix it in 2013 — instead of issuing a recall or warning surgeons about the problem.

What is the problem?

The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm. However, our team of trial attorneys are not filing a ConforMIS knee class action. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits on behalf of people who had severe injuries.

Contact us today if you or a loved one was injured by:

  • Premature failure of the knee replacement
  • Chronic pain
  • Bone loss
  • Loosening or dislocation of the spacer or tibial tray
  • Limited mobility
  • Revision surgery
  • And more

About Class Actions

ConforMIS, Inc. could potentially face a class action lawsuit involving defective knee replacements, but it would likely focus on seeking reimbursement for everyone who was implanted with the device — not people with severe injuries or financial losses from medical expenses. Another problem is that members of class actions often must accept higher attorneys’ fees or a “low-ball” settlement offer.

Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a ConforMIS Knee Class Action

Our attorneys file individual lawsuits as opposed to class actions because we believe people with very serious injuries deserve personal legal representation. Furthermore, individual lawsuits are the best way we can advocate for each client’s maximum financial compensation.

Victims of defective knee replacements often suffer from excruciating pain and limited mobility. This disability can make it impossible to work or lead a normal life, resulting in lost income due to time off work, or loss of employment. Medical expenses can also be devastating.

Filing a lawsuit cannot cure a disability, but it can provide compensation and justice. Our attorneys understand that many of our clients are suffering losses to their physical, emotional, and financial health — this is why we typically work on contingency-fee, which means we only get paid when we win.
