Francoie Stephens filed a lawsuit  last month  in New Orleans federal court claiming he was injured as a result of a defective Zimmer Durom Cup hip implant. Stephens had his hip replaced with a Zimmer Durom Cup in 2007, and according to the lawsuit, did not realized the product was defective until he saw  TV ad for another defective hip implant that was recalled by Depuy Orthopaedics in 2010. In 2011, Stephens had to have the Zimmer Durom device replaced because of problems and rising levels of cobalt chromium in his blood.

In the lawsuit, Stephens is accusing Zimmer of not notifying him of problems with the device and the recall, and, according to the Louisiana Record, “for negligently, carelessly and tortuously designing, manufacturing, labeling, distributing, marketing, and promoting the device and for manufacturing and selling the device while it contained one or more defects that made it unreasonably dangerous and unfit for its intended use.”
The lawsuit is seeking damages for pain and suffering, physical distress and injury, emotional distress and injury, medical expenses, shame, humiliation, inability to lead a normal life, loss of enjoyment of life, disability, punitive damages, mental anguish, court costs and interest, the Louisiana Record reported.
