Car Accidents in Texas

Car Accidents in Texas – A Big Problem for a Big State. If you’re a resident of the Lone Star state, chances are you’ve done some serious driving–whether it be up north in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex or further south near Austin and Houston. One thing all Texans can agree on is just how much driving is necessary for life in Texas, but the more time we spend on the road, the higher the probability becomes of ending up in a serious car accident or car wreck.


Would you be surprised to know that Texas is the state with the most fatal car accidents? In 2020 alone, the state saw 3,542 fatal car accident collisions. And the number of car fatalities on Texas roads is increasing–the state saw a 7.54% increase in vehicle traffic fatalities from 2019. Although the average number of total non-fatal car crashes and automobile collisions has been decreasing, it’s still unnerving to know that every time you hit the road in Texas, you may be at risk of getting in a serious car accident–one that may potentially end your life. Knowing this, it’s important that you’re familiar with your legal options if you should ever find yourself in this difficult situation.

Scope of the Exactech Knee Implant Failure

A huge recall has begun for more than 140,000 Exactech knee implant replacement devices implanted in the United States since 2004. The Exactech knee implant replacement devices, have a defectively packaged polyethylene insert that may cause the knee implants to fail prematurely, resulting in the need for additional painful and expensive surgery.

The Exactech Optetrak knee replacement system was approved for sale through the FDA’s notorious 510(k) fast-track process.

What Is the Problem With Zimmer Hip M/L Taper System Design?

Zimmer Hip M/L Taper System design is defective according to the lawsuits, the Zimmer M/L Taper Hip System, with a Cobalt Chromium femoral head, causes fretting and corrosion at the head-neck/stem taper junctions.

The corrosion causes metal debris, metal ions and other chemical byproducts which are released into the surrounding hip tissues. These metal debris, metal ions, and byproducts are extremely toxic and inflammatory destroying the surrounding tissue and bone, causing pseudotumors or fleshy growths in the hip joint. The release of metal debris and metal ions also causes metallosis or metal poisoning, as found in elevated blood cobalt and chromium levels.

If you received a Zimmer Hip M/L Taper hip replacement and had to undergo a hip revision surgery due to one of the following problems, you may have a legal claim:

  • Failure of the metal on metal hip implant requiring early replacement
  • Dislocated Hip
  • Metallosis or metal poisoning with chromium or cobalt
  • Tissue surrounding the implant
  • Non-cancerous tumors or pseudotumors around the hip implant
