The defective medical device attorneys at The Carlson Law Firm are currently investigating potential lawsuits for individuals across the United States who have suffered health consequences due to the a Zimmer Biomet Comprehensive Shoulder Implant.
Zimmer Biomet is the second-largest medical device manufacturer in the world, each year selling more than 1 million artificial knee, shoulder, hip, ankle, foot and elbow implants.
On Dec. 20th, 2016 Zimmer instituted a Class I recall of one of its most popular shoulder implant devices, the Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder. The recall was made after the implant was found to fracture at rates higher than expected.
Device fractures may cause device breakage, separation, severe pain, the loss of shoulder function, need for replacement surgery, infection or even death.
If you underwent shoulder replacement or implant surgery from 2008 to 2016 in which the Zimmer Biomet device was used, you may be eligible to file a claim for compensation.
Our defective medical device attorneys at The Carlson Law Firm can review your medical records to determine if you received the defective device.
