A 2015 Zimmer Durom Cup Hip Replacement Lawsuit Verdict Reversed

  •  Hip & Knee Replacement Medical Record Review & Outsourcing Services

The first Zimmer Durom Cup Hip Replacement lawsuit, which was tried before Judge Amy D. Hogue in L.A. County Superior Court in August 2015, resulted in the jury awarding the plaintiff a total of $9.2 million as the jury members agreed that defendant Zimmer Inc. failed to warn the medical community and the patients about the associated risks, manufacturing defectively designed units, and putting profit before the patient’s safety.  Zimmer Inc.’s motion for a new trial was granted by a trial judge on the grounds that the jury had reached a “hasty and excessive” verdict.

This verdict amount was reversed by a California appellate court on April 27 stating certain statements made by the plaintiff’s attorney may have led the jury to award excessive damages.

In March 2016, nearly all Durom Cup lawsuits were settled by Zimmer Inc. for an approximate amount $314 million. The court records show 261 cases still pending in the MDL as of March 2018.
