Yes, you may be able to sue Zimmer if you had the Durom Cup implanted during hip replacement surgery and afterward suffered serious complications or had to undergo a revision surgery. When a patient suffers significant complications or injuries such as continual pain or worse pain than before the hip implant, and/or forced to have a second surgery due to the defectiveness of a Zimmer Durom Cup, it can give rise to a lawsuit.
In fact, due to Zimmer’s failure to warn patients of the defective nature of the medical equipment, and not properly training doctors on how to correctly implant the device, they may be held liable for those who suffer complications. Therefore, patients who suffer complications do have legal rights and can sue Zimmer, the manufacture of the Durom Cup.
These defective metal-on-metal hip implant lawsuits seek compensation for pain and suffering as well as payment of medical expenses incurred due to the defective nature of the hip replacement device.
It is important that patients who have had the Zimmer Durom Cup implanted are aware of the serious complications that may arise so they know if they are able to file a lawsuit.
