National law firm Parker Waichman LLP has filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee, Nashville Division against Zimmer, Inc., Zimmer Holdings, Inc., and Zimmer Orthopaedic Surgical Products, Inc., on behalf of a woman who was injured by the Zimmer NexGen LPS-Flex femoral component.

According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff received a total knee replacement on January 13, 2009, and on February 18, 2011, she began to suffer debilitating and severe pain in her knee. Furthermore, the plaintiff has had to seek medical assistance several times because of her knee. The plaintiff says that at no time was she informed about the higher risk of loosening that has been associated with the Zimmer NexGen knee replacement component.

In the lawsuit, the plaintiff charges that she suffers and will continue to suffer bodily injury and harm and that she has and will continue to incur medical expenses for treatment of her knee.

The lawsuit accuses Zimmer of strict liability, failure to warn, defective design, negligence, and breach of express and implied warranty. The lawsuit seeks compensatory damages of at least $3 million, and punitive damages of at least $6 million for each cause of action listed in the lawsuit.
