Will Davidson LLP is been involved in the investigation of persons who were implanted with the Durom Acetabular hip implant in Ontario. From approximately 2006 to 2008 several thousand people across the country were implanted with the Zimmer product either by total hip replacement or hip resurfacing. It has been know now for several years that a high failure rate with the product has occurred in Europe, the United States and Canada. Subsequently many patients that were implanted with the Zimmer Durom hip implants have suffered an abnormal amount of pain and decreased mobility necessitating a hip resurfacing revisions either on one or both sides of their bodies.
You may be aware that Zimmer’s hip replacement devices used metal and metal articulation within their femoral component and acetabular cup components. It has been made known that the frictions between these femoral head component and the cup component has caused wear on the metal parts, resulting in tiny particles of metallic debris to enter the bloodstream. It has also been found that contamination could affect the tissues surrounding the hip joint, causing pain, instability, problems walking and imbalance.
If you or anyone you know has been implanted with the Zimmer hip implant and are experiencing any complications or you are scheduled for or you have underwent hip revision surgery as a result of a faulty Zimmer implant please do not hesitate to contact Will Davidson to learn your legal rights and how you may be entitled to compensation.
It is important that you inform yourself of your legal rights. We would be pleased to sit with you on an individual basis to learn your story and help you decide which route to compensation may be best for your individual situation.
