Update: Zimmer NexGen Knee Implant Litigation
August 17, 2012
Reports of high levels of failure associated with certain types of Zimmer’s® NexGen® Flex Knee replacements  have led to hundreds of lawsuits being filed against the device manufacturer alleging the early failure of these knee systems. These cases have been consolidated into a Multi-District Litigation (MDL). This means that all cases in federal court alleging that these particular NexGen® products caused injury are now centralized before one judge in the Northern District of Illinois (Chicago). Currently, nearly 500 cases are pending in the MDL. The first bellwether trial, which is like a test case, is expected to commence in Spring of 2014.
Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi L.L.P. is currently litigating and investigating potential claims on behalf of patients implanted with or injured by the Zimmer® NexGen® Flex knee. If you or a loved one believe you may have received one of the Zimmer® NexGen® Flex knee replacements and are experiencing problems with it, please feel free to contact our offices at 1-800-553-9910.
