Haddad, et. al. v. Zimmer, et. al (U.S. District Court of CT—filed December 21, 2018) On November 15, 2012, our plaintiff underwent hip replacement surgery at St. Francis Hospital. The implant itself was successful however, due to misinformation and marketing on the manufacturer’s behalf, a cobalt-chromium femoral head was used by the surgeon in combination with other components that should have been avoided. The defendant, Zimmer, Inc., should have but failed to inform the surgeon of the unreasonable risks associated with this implant, such as pain, swelling, adverse tissue reaction, the need for early revision surgery as a result of corrosion and other adverse effects of the Zimmer products. The plaintiff had to undergo—and experience all the associated risks of—two more surgeries to remove the defective and infected hardware. As a result of Zimmer’s defective products, he suffered from debilitating injuries including metallosis, trunnionosis, crevice corrosion, infection, and the risk of future complications and surgeries.

How to Use Case Builder

Case Builder contains two helpful categories: cases we are working on now and our past results. Case Builder is a novel concept. Our web designer said we should have this information fixed in a web page. We disagreed—thinking that just like our practice is always changing the case builder should be an ever-changing description of where we are right now—not last month or a year ago.
