Do I qualify for a Zimmer NexGen knee CR Flex cementless porous femoral component replacement lawsuit?
You may not know the answer to that question until you consult with a medical device attorney.
If you or a family member has suffered from a malfunctioning of certain Zimmer NextGen knee replacement or needed to have revision replacement surgery because of unrelenting pain and suffering, please contact Anapol Schwartz, a personal injury law firm with offices in PA, NJ, WV, and AZ., for a no-cost, no-obligation confidential legal consultation.
Can I afford a product negligence knee replacement lawsuit?
The answer is yes; you sustain no out-of-pocket expenses. If you agree to retain Anapol Schwartz and Anapol Schwartz agrees to be retained, you both sign an agreement stating so. Anapol Schwartz lawyers represent defective medical device lawsuits on a contingency fee basis. This means if you do not win your case, the Firm does not get paid.
Aren't these devices tested and approved by the FDA before they are sold? Id so, why do defect happen? The FDA does no testing but reviews testing and studies done by the Manufacturer. Also, most medical devices do not get a full review by the FDA, but are approved based on earlier products. The Zimmer NexGen CR High Flex is a device approved based on earlier devices.
What is the cost of knee replacements? Knee replacements are big business for medical device makers, hospitals, doctors, and physical therapists. As the population ages, so will the need for knee replacements. Faulty, malfunctioning medical devices like knee implants add more financial costs to Medicare, health insurance, and out of pocket medical expenses.
Who can you trust? Nobody can put a price tag on your pain and suffering. Revision knee surgery increases the risks for surgical and post-surgical infections, anesthesia mistakes, malpractice errors, and mobility problems. If one Zimmer knee implant doesn’t work – will the patient, his family, and even the surgeon have confidence in another Zimmer, Stryker, or Medtronic knee implant?
