Biomet (ZBH) Facing 19 Trials On Metal on Metal Hips

Sarasota, FL — (December 17, 2019) Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:ZBH)  (SWX:ZBH) is facing almost 20 jury trials across the country between 2020 through 2021. The barrage of trials begins May 2020 in Seattle, WA and spans venues across the country. The trials involve patients suffering heavy metal poisoning from Biomet metal on metal hip replacements. The patients in these jury trials are all represented by Maglio Christopher & Toale, P.A., which currently has 140 lawsuits filed against Zimmer Biomet.

Biomet has never faced a trial over its M2a metal-on-metal hip replacements, until now. In 2014, before its merger with Zimmer, Biomet claimed a meager $56 million settlement would make the company’s metal on metal hip replacement litigation liability go away. It did not. As a result, the new company — Zimmer Biomet — is saddled with litigation problems which continue to get worse.

From the beginning, the attorneys at Maglio Christopher & Toale, P.A filed their clients’ cases in state courts around the country instead of the Federal Multi-District Litigation, where most cases were gathered in one court. The independence from the federal MDL allowed them unique access to millions of pages of additional documents as well as many witnesses. “We believe the jury will see that these documents show a shocking disregard for patient safety in the pursuit of profit,” says Managing Partner, Altom Maglio. Those documents are currently sealed but will become public during the upcoming trials.

Portions of the case against Zimmer Biomet include:

  • Damaging and incriminating internal company documents.
  • Surgeons warnings to Biomet which went ignored.
  • The company’s decision to recall the metal on metal hip replacements in Australia and Europe, but not in the United States.

The attorneys at Maglio Christopher & Toale, PA will have 19 opportunities across the country to present the case against Zimmer Biomet for the public to hear and a jury to decide. For Zimmer Biomet, this represents an immense financial and credibility problem, especially given repeated missed opportunities to resolve these cases.
