Zimmer Knee replacement lawsuit on NexGen knees

Posted on Sep 01, 2011

Trial Magazine reports that Zimmer Holdings, Inc., which makes NexGen artificial knees, has sued at least seven plaintiff law firms and has sent cease-and-desist letters to several others, arguing that the firms' Web sites and advertisements inaccurately describe NexGen products.


 The magazine further reports that patients who have undergone knee replacement surgery with NexGen implants argue that the products loosened prematurely, causing pain and loss of movement and requiring further surgery. Twenty-eight products liability cases against Zimmer were consolidated in a multidistrict litigation in the Northern District of Illinois on August 8. The Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation noted that it had been notified of 45 more cases.
