Since 2012, more than 11,000 patients who have undergone total knee replacement surgeries around the world have received Zimmer Persona® Trabecular Metal™ tibial plate components. But in March 2015, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recalled the devices after reports that the plates loosen within the knee.
If you underwent a total knee replacement between March 2012 and March 2015, and you’re suffering from painful side effects or were required to have a corrective surgery, you may be entitled to compensation. Our experienced Green Bay defective medical device lawyers are ready to review your surgical records and help you take action. Contact us today to get the help you deserve.
Do You Have a Defective Knee Replacement Component?
Your knee implant components may be defective if you had total knee replacement surgery between March 2012 – March 2015 and:
- You’re experiencing side effects from your knee implant.
- You had—or may require—additional surgery to correct your defective Zimmer implant.
We understand most patients are not sure which components were used for their procedures. We’re here to help. Our defective medical device lawyers can review your medical records to determine your rights to compensation.
Symptoms of Defective Zimmer Knee Components
Patients suffering from defective Zimmer Persona components may experience any of the following symptoms:
- Knee pain
- Difficulty walking or moving
- Instability or difficulty balancing
- Joint popping
- Reduced range of motion
These side effects often require additional surgeries to correct, which can leave patients facing recovery periods that limit their ability to work and reduce their quality of life.
Can I Afford a Lawyer for My Defective Knee Replacement Claim?
Yes. Our firm doesn’t believe in turning away victims of defective medical products because of an inability to pay upfront. That’s why we never charge initial fees for our legal representation, and we only get paid if we win you money.
How Can a Lawyer Help with My Defective Knee Replacement Claim?
Medical manufacturers often have large legal teams on their side working hard to discredit claims like yours. You need a legal team working just as hard on your side. Our law firm isn’t afraid to go up against big corporations if it means getting innocent victims like you the money they deserve.
When you get our law firm working on your behalf, we’ll do everything in our power to help you recover compensation such as:
- Medical expenses resulting from your defective knee replacement.
- Future medical expenses related to your defective knee replacement, such as revision surgery or physical therapy.
- Income lost during your recovery, or long-term income if your defective knee replacement left you disabled and unable to work.
- Compensation for physical pain and emotional distress.
You can count on us to review your medical expenses and how your defective knee replacement has affected your life, and then we’ll determine how much compensation you may be entitled to. If a private settlement can’t be reached, we won’t hesitate to take your case to trial.
