What you need to know about Stryker hip implant lawsuits
Between 2009 and 2012, the Stryker Corporation produced and sold two models of metal-on-metal hip implants. When the moving parts of the implants rubbed together, they released tiny pieces of metal and toxic chemicals into the body, causing a variety of medical complications.
Though patients reported problems with the implants, Stryker continued to sell them without warning patients, surgeons or doctors of the potential risks. As such, countless patients received defective hip implants, and now face additional procedures, injuries and illnesses as a direct result.
In 2012, the company recalled two components of its metal hip implants (ABG II and Rejuvenate modular-neck stems) following concerns that they may harm the body, causing:
- Pain in the hip, leg and/or groin.
- Hip joint swelling.
- Issues with the hip joint, including popping, grinding and clicking.
- A limp.
- Reduced mobility.
Due to the vast problems associated with Stryker hip implants, thousands of patients filed lawsuits against the company to seek compensation for their medical expenses, physical pain, mental anguish and other damages. In 2013, their cases were consolidated, and in 2014 the Stryker Corporation agreed to pay $1 billion to settle the lawsuits of patients who had to undergo surgeries due to the failures and medical problems caused by their Rejuvenate or ABG II metal hip implants.
If you or a loved one is experiencing complications from a Stryker metal hip implant, you may be eligible to take part in this $1 billion settlement and obtain full compensation for your injuries. During your initial evaluation with our expert legal team, we will work closely with you to review the facts of your case and help you determine if you are entitled to recover damages due to the defective Stryker implants.
