Trust Your Case to an Experienced Medical Device Lawyer
Medical device manufacturers have a responsibility to the public to create products that function safely and correctly. Medical devices are designed to enhance a patient's quality of life.

Defective Medical Device Cases in Idaho
A defective medical device is unreasonably dangerous. Defects can result from faulty manufacturing, compromised design, or failure to properly label a product as potentially dangerous. If you have been injured because of a defective medical device, you can hold the manufacturer liable for your injuries, medical bills, and other losses.
“Trust our experienced attorneys to fight for you while you focus your attention on getting well.”
At Hepworth, Janis, & Kluksdal, we are assertive, proactive, and not afraid to bring your case to the courtroom. Big companies, such as the ones who make defective medical devices, can be intimidating to injured consumers and less experienced law firms. We, on the other hand, have vast experience in holding these companies accountable. With each attorney on our team bringing unique strengths, we can create a thorough and effective approach to your case.
Recalled Medical Devices
Our law firm has successfully filed several lawsuits involving a variety of recalled medical devices:
Stryker® Hip Implant
Stryker® is a worldwide orthopaedics manufacturer that has recalled two artificial implant systems since 2012. The Rejuvenate Modular and ABG II Modular-Neck Hip Stems were recalled because of corrosive metallic components that ultimately can leach into the patient's bloodstream, tissue, and bones.
Biomet® Hip Implant
Biomet® is a medical device company that specializes in joint implants. Their hip replacements have been linked to metal poisoning.
Sulzer Hip Implant
Sulzer Orthopedics manufactured hip implants that were contaminated with an oil residue that hindered the bonding of the implants with the joint itself. Sulzer recalled approximately 40,000 implants in December of 2000. The device caused patients to experience intense pain and difficulty accomplishing day-to-day tasks, such as walking and sitting.
Depuy Pinnacle and ASR Hip Replacement System
Depuy Orthopaedics manufactures over 200 different joint implants. However, two of their hip replacement systems have failed due to metal-on-metal construction. This faulty design can lead to infection, dislocation, immobility, and severe pain.
Zimmer® NexGen® Knee Implant
Zimmer Holdings Inc. is a major manufacturer of joint replacement systems. They have had several product recalls, including their NexGen® knee implant. The device has had mechanical issues causing patients pain and requiring revision surgery.
Zimmer® Durom Cup® Hip Replacement
Zimmer® Holdings Inc. manufactures several hip and knee implants. They voluntarily recalled their Durom Cup® in July 2008 due to many of the implants failing prematurely.
Zimmer® Persona® Knee Implant
Zimmer® has voluntarily recalled their defective Persona® knee implant, which has caused patients injuries including nerve damage and bone fractures.
