The Zimmer Durom Cup is a metal hip replacement that has been linked to serious side effects, including metal poisoning, severe pain, and premature failure of the implant. These complications may need to be treated with revision surgery to remove and replace the implant.

Zimmer Durom Cup Class Action Lawsuit Information
In 2008, the FDA issued a Safety Communication for the Zimmer Durom Acetabular Cup because the instructions for use were inadequate. Since then, over 300 lawsuits have been filed by people who were injured.
Although hundreds of lawsuits have been filed, they are not part of a Zimmer Durom cup class action. Instead, they are individual product liability lawsuits that have been centralized in a federal Multi-District Litigation (MDL No. 2158) in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey.
What is the problem?
The Clark Firm, LLP is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but our attorneys are not filing a Zimmer Durom Cup class action. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits on behalf of people who were severely injured by a metal-on-metal hip replacement.
- Metallosis (metal poisoning)
- Loosening of the hip implant
- Bone loss and tissue necrosis
- Severe pain
- Decreased mobility
- Revision surgery
About Class Actions
Class action lawsuits are beneficial when a large number of people have similar legal claims. Instead of everyone filing a lawsuit alone, lawyers select a “class representative” and use that person’s case to argue for compensation on behalf of the entire group. If compensation is awarded, lawyers typically take a percentage and members of the class action divide the rest amongst themselves.
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Zimmer Durom Cup Class Action
For individuals with severe injuries, class actions can have disadvantages. Plaintiffs might have to accept higher attorneys’ fees or a blanket “low-ball” settlement offer. Instead of a class action, our lawyers are filing individual lawsuits. We believe personal legal representation is the best way we can help each of our clients maximize their financial recovery.
The Zimmer Durom Cup is associated with debilitating injuries that can cause severe pain and suffering, ongoing medical expenses, lost income, and more. If you decide to file a lawsuit, we can help you seek compensation and justice for these injuries, and more. Contact us today for more information.
