Yes, you may be able to file a Michigan lawsuit if you had a second surgery to replace your Zimmer hip replacement. A second surgery is usually required because the patient may suffer from serious complications from the medical device such as continual pain and discomfort. When a patient receives a hip replacement, they should not experience pain nor have to undergo a second revision surgery. Therefore, when a patient has a second surgery to replace the original Zimmer hip implant, there may be means to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer.
There are strict statutes of limitations for filing a defective metal-on-metal hip implant lawsuit against manufacturers. If you miss a deadline your case will be lost forever. It is important when choosing your lawyer for your Zimmer Durom Cup case that you choose an attorney that has significant experience in representing patients injured by a defective medical device.
