A product liability lawsuit was recently filed against ConforMIS, Inc., alleging that its iTotal G2 knee implant is defective. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has received at least 30 reports of ConforMIS knee replacements loosening or dislocating prematurely, causing patients chronic pain, bone loss, immobility and other complications.

What is the ConforMIS Knee Replacement?
ConforMIS Inc. markets the iTotal G2 as “the only completely patient-customized total knee replacement system” available today because it is designed according to each patient’s individual specifications. The system includes an implant that is attached to the base of the femur, a tray that is implanted into the head of the tibia, and 2 polypropylene spacers that are locked into the top of the tibia tray.
ConforMIS iTotal G2 Lawsuit
A product liability lawsuit was recently filed against ConforMIS, Inc. on behalf of Mary Jane Martine, a 65-year-old nurse had two separate knee surgeries with the ConforMIS iTotal G2 knee. Within six months of the second operation, Martine began experiencing severe pain, popping sounds and immobility in her right knee. It was later determined that both her right and left knee implants were defective, which required her to undergo bilateral revision surgery. As a result, Martine was left with excruciating pain, bone loss and additional trauma resulting from her recovery.

About ConforMIS Knee Replacement Class Action Lawsuits
Although we are a nationally recognized class action firm, the Medical Device Litigation Group at our law firm has decided against the filing of a ConforMIS Knee Class Action Suit, and is currently filing individual claims on behalf of individuals and/or their family members who were injured after receiving a ConforMIS Knee Replacement System.
A class action is a type of lawsuit filed with the court on behalf of large group of people or “class” of individuals that have been injured or wronged. The class is represented by the law firm and the case is generally decided upon a single member of the class who is sometimes referred to as the “class representative or class rep.”
Why Our Law Firm Is Filing Individual Lawsuits Opposed To a Class Action
In some instances, a class action may offer some advantages, as they aggregate a large number of individualized claims into one representational lawsuit. The aggregation can increase the efficiency of the legal process, lower the costs of litigation and in some cases offer the solution to a common problem wherein small recoveries do not provide the incentive for any individual or law firm to file an individual lawsuit.
However, a class action suit can also be a detriment to many class members, as they are often forced into a blanket “low ball settlement” and higher attorney fees. At Schmidt & Clark, LLP we understand that our clients are suffering emotionally and economically due to loss of wages and/or high medical bills and we plan to maximize each client’s recovery by filing individual ConforMIS Knee Lawsuits on their behalf.
