According to court documents, on March 15th, 2012, a California resident, Therese Gonzales, filed a lawsuit in New Jersey District Court (case no. 2:2012cv01651) against Zimmer Inc. alleging that Zimmer Durom Cup was defectively designed and caused her pain and side effects that “are consistent with loosening of the acetabular cups used in her hip replacements”. The Zimmer Durom Cup is an artificial hip component widely used in hip replacement surgeries in the US since 2006. On June 9th, 2010, the US Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation ordered the centralization of products liability cases involving the Zimmer Durom Cup hip device (MDL 2158). This new lawsuit joins the multidistrict litigation in the New Jersey District Court, where the pre-trial proceedings have been consolidated in at least 75 cases.

The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Therese Gonzales. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.

According to court documents, on March 15th, 2012, a California resident, Therese Gonzales, filed a lawsuit in New Jersey District Court (case no. 2:2012cv01651) against Zimmer Inc. alleging that the Zimmer Durom Cup was defectively designed and caused her pain and side effects. The Zimmer Durom Cup is an artificial hip component widely used in hip replacement surgeries in the US since 2006. Gonzales received a right Zimmer Durom Cup total hip replacement in 2006, and her left joint was replaced the following year in San Diego. After her surgeries, Gonzales said she began to have pain. Her attorney said the side effects she’s experiencing “are consistent with loosening of the acetabular cups used in her hip replacements.”

On June 9th, 2010, the US Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation ordered the centralization of products liability cases involving the Zimmer Durom Cup hip device (MDL 2158). This new lawsuit joins the multidistrict litigation in the New Jersey District Court, where the pre-trial proceedings have been consolidated in at least 75 cases.
