Zimmer Persona Knee Replacement Recall
March 12, 2015 — A Class II recall has been issued for the Zimmer Persona Trabecular Metal Tibial Plate.
The problem with this knee replacement is that Zimmer has received a higher-than-expected number of complaints involving premature loosening. Some patients also had radiolucent lines, which are dark lines seen on an X-ray that indicate poor fixation.
Some patients whose implants loosened also needed revision surgery.
Approximately 11,700 of the implants were sold throughout the United States, including at over a dozen Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitals in California, Pennsylvania, Alabama, Ohio, and other states. They were sold from November 29, 2012 until January 23, 2015. Click here to read more.
What is the problem?
The Clark Firm, LLP is nationally recognized as a class action law firm. However, instead of a Zimmer Persona class action, our attorneys are filing individual lawsuits on behalf of people who were injured by this knee replacement.
If you or a loved one experienced any of the following problems, we may be able to help:
- Chronic pain
- Loosening of the implant
- Limited mobility
- Radiolucent lines (risk-factor for failure)
- Early failure of the implant
- Revision surgery
- And more
About Class Actions
Class actions are a good way to help a lot of people who have a very similar legal claim — for example, buying a product based on false advertisements — especially when the cost of filing an individual lawsuit is less than the amount of compensation each plaintiff is seeking.
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action
Class actions can have serious disadvantages for members who are very severely injured. Members of class actions may have to accept a “low-ball” settlement, high attorneys’ fees, or pennies on the dollar for serious legal claims.
If you were injured by a defective knee replacement, you deserve an attorney who is committed to your personal legal representation. We understand that many of our clients are suffering devastating losses to their physical, financial, and emotional health.
We file individual lawsuits so we can help people with serious injuries seek justice and compensation. If you were injured by the Zimmer Persona, you could be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering, medical expenses, future care, lost income, permanent disability, and more.
