Zimmer Durom Cup Settlements
Patients who had hip replacement surgery prior to July of 2008 are at risk of suffering serious injuries which may lead to excruciating pain, mounting medical bills and revision surgery. Patients at risk are those implanted with a Zimmer Durom Cup, the socket component. According to reports, approximately one in every 20 patients who have received the Zimmer Durom Cup will suffer extreme pain and have to undergo revision surgery.
Due to the volume of potential injuries, Zimmer Holdings, Inc. has set millions of dollars aside for Zimmer Durom Cup settlement claims. If you've experienced severe pain following hip replacement surgery, you should check with your doctor to confirm whether you were implanted with a Zimmer Durom Cup. If so, you will most likely qualify to seek and recover compensation for your losses via a settlement.
Patients affected by the defective device between 2006 and 2008 are encouraged by the company to come forward and receive their payout compensation. However, the payout, for many patients, is not nearly enough to cover the expenses incurred.
Protecting Your Health and Your Rights
If you had hip replacement surgery between 2006 and July of 2008 and you are (or were) suffering in pain, there are steps you can take to protect your health and your rights:
- Contact your physician immediately. Your doctor will be able to tell you if a Zimmer Durom Cup was used in your hip implant. If it was, you may be able to file a claim against the manufacturer.
- Have your doctor determine if the implant has come loose in your hip joint. If so, you may need to have a revision procedure to implant a new cup into your hip socket.
- Contact an attorney experienced in handling cases involving defective medical devices. Only a qualified lawyer will be able to get you the compensation you need to move on with your life.
Qualified attorneys will be able to thoroughly investigate your injuries and fight aggressively to ensure you recover the maximum compensation you are entitled to, not just a quick payout. Zimmer Durom Cup settlements will typically include financial compensation to cover the cost of surgery and revision surgery, lost wages if you are unable to work, and emotional suffering.
