U.S. FDA Recalls Defective Medical Device Zimmer Knee Persona® Tibial Plate

The FDA has recalled the defective medical device known as the Zimmer knee replacement which is very likely to fail. The Zimmer Persona® Trabecular Metal™ Tibial Plate is an individual part of three primary components of the knee replacement that has a tendency to pull away from the leg bone structure. People that have the Zimmer knee replacement installed are showing high rates of joint instability. The defective medical device is also showing radiolucent lines which is an indication of this premature failure.

In the FDA’s medical device recall it has been pointed out that knee replacement patients will need to endure another surgery to replace the recalled unit.

In the 3 years that the product has been on the market there has been about 10,500 Zimmer knee replacements completed. For a product that should last for 15 plus years, this is not good news for the defective medical device manufacturer.

It has been reported by patients that have the Zimmer Knee Replacement device, that they experience knee popping, mobility limitations and knee pain.

I highly recommend The Tiemann Law Firm! I had never before been in a situation where I sustained injury and had to seek legal representation. I was nervous, traumatized, and had no idea what to expect. Jelena, Peter, and their staff walked me through each step of the process. They explained everything in detail. They patiently answered all my questions, responded quickly to every email, text message, phone call, etc. I felt totally prepared for each new phase of the legal process. Furthermore, they were fearless in their defense of me. In certain situations, when I felt attacked or scared my attorney protected me like I was family. Their diligence, honesty, integrity, and compassion provided a true sense of healing and closure for my family and I. The Tiemann Law Firm accomplished more for me than I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful.

Here's the thing... Nobody really thinks much about lawyers until they need one.  Well, we needed one!  The Tieman Law Firm came through for us in a big way. They were professional, courteous, thorough, and had excellent staff as well.  Highly recommended...

No one wants to have to hire a lawyer, but if you do. I prefer Tiemann Law. They helped a family member who was injured on the job, and the company did not want to compensate him even though, the injury occurred on the job on company time. Jelena was always professional in explaining the lengthy process of fighting a large corporation. 2 years later he finally is receiving the deserved compensation.

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!

I was in a car accident a while back where I was injured and had to miss work for an extended period of time.  After nearly a year of fighting with the insurance company with no results and no progress, I met with Jelena Tiemann.  I couldn't have asked for a more responsive and supportive advocate.  We quickly reached a settlement and I finally was able to move from the stress and burden of feuding with my insurance.  I highly recommending meeting with Jelena if you're in need of a lawyer.
