Zimmer Durom Cup Class Action Lawsuit

Zimmer Durom Cup Class Action Lawsuit

Hundreds of people who were injured by the Zimmer Durom Cup have filed lawsuits. The problem is that this metal hip replacement is associated with metal poisoning (metallosis), which can cause severe pain, loosening of the implant, and other complications that require revision surgery.

Zimmer Durom Cup Class Action Lawsuit Information

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published a Safety Communication for the Zimmer Durom Cup in 2008. The agency warned that the instructions for use were inaccurate. In the next few years, numerous studies raised concern about complications from metal hip replacements.

Over 300 people have filed lawsuits for injuries caused by the Zimmer Durom Cup. These lawsuits are not part of a class action — they are individual claims filed by people who hired an attorney after suffering severe side effects. Most cases have been centralized in a federal Multi-District Litigation (MDL No. 2158) in federal court in New Jersey.

What is the problem?

The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but our Defective Medical Device Litigation Group is not currently filing a Zimmer Durom Cup class action. Instead, we are filing individual product liability lawsuits on behalf of people who were severely injured by side effects of defective hip replacements.

Side effects linked to the Zimmer Durom Cup include:

  • Metallosis (metal poisoning)
  • Loosening of the hip implant
  • Bone loss and tissue necrosis
  • Failure
  • Severe pain
  • Decreased mobility
  • Revision surgery

About Class Actions

Class action lawsuits are useful and beneficial for large groups of people who have been injured by the same defendant. Instead of everyone filing a lawsuit alone, plaintiffs join together, select a “class representative,” and collectively argue for compensation on behalf of the entire group. If compensation is awarded, lawyers take a percentage and the rest is divided among class members.

Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Zimmer Durom Cup Class Action

Class actions can have disadvantages for individual plaintiffs with severe injuries. Members of class actions often must accept higher attorneys’ fees or a blanket “low-ball” settlement offer. Instead of a class action, our lawyers provide personal legal representation by filing individual lawsuits. We believe this is the best way we can help each of our clients maximize their financial recovery.

Zimmer is facing hundreds of lawsuits because the Durom Cup is associated with severe injuries — chronic pain, revision surgery, and more. If you decide to file a lawsuit, we may be able to help you recover compensation for your pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost income, and more. Contact us today to learn more.
