LOS ANGELES, Oct. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MT Services LLC, a Lawsuit Settlement News Reporting Company which operates lawsuitsettlementnews.com, announced today a primary focus on assisting plaintiffs who have suffered with complications from Zimmer NexGen Knee implants. A significant amount of lawsuits have been filed against the leading manufacturer of knee implants, Zimmer Inc., over certain models and components of its NexGen medical devices. These components include LPS-Flex, Gender Solutions Female LPS-Flex (GSF-LPS Flex), Cruciate Retaining-Flex Femoral Components (CR-Flex), and CR-Flex Gender Solutions Female CR-Flex (GSF-Flex). The devices were meant to increase range of motion and imitate natural knee function, but plaintiffs who have filed cases against Zimmer Inc. claim that the devices actually caused a decreased range of motion as well as extreme pain, tissue and/or nerve damage, bone degradation or fractures, instability, infection, blood clots, and ultimate failure of device implant. Among those who have filed lawsuits, painful revision surgery was often required.
According to court documents, an estimated 150,000 patients have been implanted with the NexGen Flex devices, and over 1,000 Zimmer Knee lawsuits are currently pending across the country; however, MTS expects these numbers to rise as more knee implants begin to fail. Starting in 2010, the FDA issued recalls for various components of the NexGen knee mechanisms (the NexGen LPS femoral component, the NexGen LPS Flex gender femoral component, and the NexGen MIS tibial components), however, none of the models have been permanently removed from the marketplace. An estimated 50K knee replacements are believed to be directly affected by the recalls. Federal lawsuits have been consolidated into multidistrict litigation (MDL) in the U.S. District Court in the North District of Illinois, with the first bellwether trial set to begin in 2015.
Chris Janish, CEO of MTS, commented on the lawsuits filed, "The Zimmer knee litigation is now beginning to gain a lot of traction with over 1,000 cases filed in courts throughout the U.S. We believe there is a large number of patients who received these implants that are subject to FDA recall, and that they may now beginning to see the debilitating effects of the NexGen product. The time to file a lawsuit claim is now if patients have not done so already."
