Deadline Coming in Stryker Hip Implant Lawsuit

Posted on - Saturday, January 11, 2014 under Dangerous Drugs & Products, Medical Malpractice

ACT NOW IF YOU RECEIVED A STRYKER HIP IMPLANT

You may recall that a settlement was reached in November, 2014 for over 4,000 patients that filed suit against Stryker for defective hip replacements.  The settlement called for Stryker to set aside $1 billion to pay as compensation to patients experiencing medical problems due to the failure of the Stryker Rejuvenate or ABG II Modular hip replacement devices.  The initial recall occurred in July 2012.

Cobalt and titanium were used in the production of these artificial hips.  Those metals, although thought to me more durable, actually corrode and put microscopic metal particles into the patient’s bloodstream and tissues.  The introduction of those metals to the human body caused patients to develop a condition called mellosis.  Metallosis can causes swelling and inflammation, necrosis of bone and tissue, and continued surgeries.  The installation of a Stryker artifical hip (when defective) is life-changing.

The settlement only applies to patients who have already had surgery to repair their defective Stryker hip implants.  The medical term you commonly hear for the repairing surgery is revision. If you or a loved one had a Stryker hip implant revised, you may receive up to $300,000 per hip.  You should contact a product liability attorney immediately if you had a repairing surgery to a Stryker hip implant.

Deadline to Receive Money from Stryker Hip Settlement

You can enroll for settlement funds beginning January 16, 2015.  The deadline for submitting a claim is March 2, 2015.  If you need assistance, contact the Stryker Hip Replacement Attorneys of The Parian Law Firm, LLC by calling (770) 727-5550.

What if I Have Not Had My Stryker Hip Repaired?
