Stryker® Hip Replacement Recall
If you or someone you know have experienced complications from a Stryker Rejuvenate or ABG II Modular-Neck Stem device, you may be entitled to compensation.
On Nov. 3, 2014, Stryker Corporation agreed to pay at least $1.43 billion to settle thousands of lawsuits from patients who had to have surgery due to complications from hip implants involving the popular Rejuvenate Modular and ABG II Modular-Neck Stem hip implant devices.
The settlement is a result of a recall of these devices from Stryker Corporation in July 2012 after it was discovered that the artificial joints had the “potential for fretting and/or corrosion at or about the modular neck junction, which may result in adverse local tissue reactions manifesting with pain and/or swelling.”
More than 20,000 defective hip implant devices have been sold by Stryker but just over 5,000 lawsuits have been filed.
If you or someone you know experienced complications from one of these hip implants, contact Bailey & Glasser for a free evaluation of your potential claim by calling attorney David L.
