Sulzer (defective hip implants)
Kugler Kandestin instituted a class action on behalf of all patients in Canada who received a hip implant manufactured and sold by Sulzer (which was subsequently purchased by Centerpulse, and then by Zimmer).
Kugler Kandestin collaborated with attorneys throughout the United States, and ultimately negotiated a settlement which enabled its clients to recover substantial compensation for the pain, suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life that they sustained. The settlement was approved by the Québec Superior Court.
If you have any questions with respect to this case, please contact Robert Kugler.
