Zimmer Hip Replacement Recall – What You Must Know

Have you been affected by the Zimmer Hip Replacement recall?  If so, you need to take action if you haven’t already.

First of all, with all the press lately about the DePuy Hip Recall, the Zimmer Recall has kind of gotten lost in the shuffle.  But it’s still very much for real.  And there are countless people who have a Zimmer Durom Cup or two implanted in their hip area, and many of them may need what’s euphemistically called “revision” surgery.

Why? Because the Zimmer Hip Implant has a way above average failure rate.  In fact, approximately 8% of the hip implants failed within the FIRST TWO YEARS! And a study in 2010 showed that the failure rate has gone up to 11%!

That’s pretty bad news, for the affected patients as well as for Zimmer.  Zimmer eventually recalled its implants. But in the meantime, those who have received those implants are in for a rough ride.

If that’s you, here’s what you need to do:

a) Go see your doctor and gather up your medical records

b) Get legal advice.

We can help you with the second…  But first, why not get our special report on the 7 biggest mistakes people make that can RUIN their chances of ever getting compensation — or proper compensation — for the injuries!

You can get that here:

You’ll also be invited to request a FREE consultation as soon as you get your special report.

Do you need symptoms to get help? Not necessarily. If you have some, that will certainly be good to know, but even if you don’t have symptoms YET, you may well be eligible for compensation. After all, that’s what earlier than usual malfunction rates mean.

Also, there are problems associated with the recalled hip implants that are not limited to the usual ones, which tend to be hip pain, loosening of the joint, trouble walking, swelling, and so on.

The metal-on-metal implants also cause microscopic metal particles to slough off and get into the surrounding tissue, where they can cause major problems. In fact, they can even poison your entire system — and you’ll never know if all you’re looking for is hip pain.

That’s because the symptoms are not that specific. And you may not even have symptoms yet, but the higher than normal metal levels in your bloodstream are evidence that you’ree being poisoned and need to have the implant removed as soon as possible.

And just in case you’re wondering… we’ll be happy to help whether you have the Zimmer hip implant or one of the recalled DePuy Hip implants.

Zimmer Hip Replacement Recall – About the Statute of Limitations

Are you affected by the Zimmer Hip Replacement Recall? Or maybe it’s someone you live? What should you do?

Zimmer Hip Replacement Recall

Whatever you do, do it SOON. Don’t let the statute of limitations expire on you. And there’s a real danger of that. Here’s why:

You may wonder whether your case is serious enough to justify getting someone into legal trouble.

Of course, that party is already in legal trouble. And as far as your case being serious enough is concerned…

Zimmer Hip Replacement Recall

Woman with Hip Pain

When is your pain serious enough?

What exactly do you consider serious enough? Where on the scale of 1 (no pain) to 10 (excruciating) pan do you need to be until you feel justified in lodging a complaint?

Here’s the deal: If you have pain, and it’s not been getting better or it’s been getting worse, you can pretty much expect that it will continue to get worse.

No, you don’t know 100% for sure, but in either event, go see your doctor, and do it soon.

Stealth Health Problems Caused by the Zimmer Durom Cup

Also remember that there are health problems that can be caused by the Zimmer Durom Cup that are not necessarily evident right off the bat.

What are they?

They’re problems caused by metal toxicity – something that is likely to happen to some degree, or to a greater degree, sooner or later, and often much sooner than you’d like.

What the … are you talking about?

Well, you see, the Zimmer Durom Cup involves a metal ball moving in a metal socket. And with that movement, microscopic metal shavings are released — and they get into the surrounding tissues and eventually the blood stream.

And metal isn’t something that’s supposed to be floating around in your veins.

So what can you do?

Start by checking out the following entry:

Zimmer Hip Replacement Recall Q&A

You’ll get a pretty good picture of what you need to do…

What you need to do is go see your doctor and be tested to find out just how much you need to worry about metal toxicity. And if your metal levels (cobalt, for example) are elevated, go see not just your doctor but also a lawyer.

Yes, getting legal advice is not just for “sissies”. Everyone who has been hurt in a hip replacement recall, 2010 or before (or after), has a right for compensation, and trust me, you’re not going to get compensated unless you have someone fight for it on your behalf. And in order to give your lawyer a fighting chance, you need to take the right steps first!

And here’s the clincher: Taking the right steps in the Zimmer Hip Replacement Recall includes this one:

Act quickly.

Why?

The Statute of Limitations

What the heck is the statute of limitations. It means that after a certain period of time has elapsed since the “incident”, the case can no longer be tried in court.

That’s right! You snooze, you lose!

I know it sounds crude, but it’s the truth!

So how long is the statute of limitations. Unfortunately, there is no one answer, and the answer can actually be very complex.

In addition, each state is different in how they handle this, and how long the statute of limitations is for a variety of cases.

But here’s the scoop that applies to you and everyone who has been affected by the Zimmer Hip Replacement Recall OR any of the other recalls, including the DePuy Hip replacement recall or the Stryker hip recall:

You’ve got to take action FAST, sooner rather than later.

You do not want to miss out on your chance of being compensated for your injuries. Not when a company was at fault that was still selling a product after it has already shown signs of causing problems at a much higher rate than you would expect.

That’s what it means when a disproportionate number of people need their artificial hip replaced less than two years after the first surgery.

Come on now! These hip implants were supposed to last at least ten to fifteen years, and preferably for life. So if a lot of implants need to be replaced within a couple of years or less, that’s not good.

No one should have gotten one of those implants once that became evident.

And then, there’s that metal toxicity issue. You may not have symptoms for a long time, but in the meantime you already might be poisoned by metal levels that are far too high.

So if you have questions about your Zimmer Durom Cup Hip Implant Recall case, go ahead and get the information you need — NOW.

And in order to help you avoid the 7 biggest mistakes (and waiting too long is one of them), we have prepared a special report that we would like to give to you free of charge.

Zimmer Durom Cup Recall

Have you been caught up in the Zimmer Durom Cup Recall? If so, you are probably eligible for compensation.

And to get compensation, you need to take the right kind of action.

Zimmer Durom

Step 1: Do you have a Zimmer Hip?

You need to know if you have a Zimmer Durom implant.

How would you know? It should be in your medical records. You probably also have an ID card.

Step 2: Do you have Pain or Swelling or other Symptoms?

Pain, swelling, and other symptoms, including loosening of the joint are among the symptoms that indicate that there is trouble brewing with your Zimmer Durom hip implant.

if you have such symptoms, you need to do two things, well, actually three:

1) Keep careful records of EVERYTHING
2) See a Doctor and have it checked out
3) Get some legal advice

You need to do all of the above right away.

3) See a doctor & get legal advice

As I said above, you need to see a doctor AND get legal advice.

What’s the Problem with the Zimmer Durom Cup?

The Zimmer hip, specifically the Zimmer Durom Cup has been shown to have a way above average failure rate.

As you might imagine, with hip replacement surgery being rather major surgery and needing a long recuperation period, complete with extensive physical therapy, you don’t want to do this again anytime soon.

In fact, you would have every right to expect that the implant would last as long as you, i.e., at least several decades.

So when it starts failing within a year or two, that’s seriously bad news. And that’s what’s been happening with the Zimmer Durom cup.

Sure, not every single one has failed (yet).

But a far above average rate means something is seriously amiss, so you have to get it checked out, even if you don’t have symptoms yet.

Stealth Symptoms

Here’s the really bad news. You may not recognize the symptoms you have, or you may not attribute them to your Zimmer hip!

And yet — if you have symptoms such as fatigue, nausea, memory impairment, and other such things, you better have your blood levels of various metals checked.

That’s because the Zimmer Durom hip works by way of metal moving on metal.

It seemed like a good idea at the time, but unfortunately, Zimmer as well as DePuy have been learning the hard way that this type of hip implant can cause metal toxicity as the constant rubbing of metal on metal can cause microscopic particles to be released into the surrounding tissue and into the blood stream.

This can cause allergic reaction, damage to the tissue by triggering serious inflammation, and yes, systemic metal toxicity.

So even if you do not have symptoms, go see your doctor and have your metal levels in your blood checked.

And be sure to request your special report.
