First Zimmer Shoulder Replacement Case Settled

First Zimmer Shoulder Replacement Case Settled

The first individual settlement has been reached for one man suffering adverse health effects from Zimmer's hazardous device. The case, coming out of the U.S. District Court of Colorado, was filed in 2014 and has finally been resolved more than two years after.

The plaintiff had originally received two separate Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder replacement devices to fix a rotator cuff tear in one arm and severe arthritis in the other. After receiving the implants, both devices fractured, causing the plaintiff high levels of pain and a major loss of motor functions in both arms.

The plaintiff claimed that Biomet had kept the device in the market despite being fully aware of the high likelihood of adverse health effects for consumers.

Biomet agreed to a settlement of $350,000 for the plaintiff. This is likely the first of many lawsuits to be filed against Zimmer Biomet's Comprehensive Reverse Shoulder device.
