Lawyers with an Edge: Handling Stryker Hip Implant Lawsuits in NYC
If your health has been damaged by a Stryker hip implant, you should contact Lawyers with an Edge to discuss a class action lawsuit.
In April of 2012, the Stryker Corporation announced an Urgent Safety Alert about two hip replacement systems, the Rejuvenate system and the ABG II system. Two months later, it issued a voluntary recall of the products “due to the potential for fretting and corrosion at the modular-neck junction which may result in ALTR (adverse local tissue reactions).” Fretting is wear on the device.
Stryker introduced the Rejuvenate hip system in 2009; it began marketing the ABG II hip system in 2010. It called them the “new generation” of its hip implant product line. The ABG II system was designed for the BG II system stressed stability. The Rejuvenate system was made for younger patients who needed a device with a longer life span.
If you’ve received a Stryker hip implant you should contact your doctor, particularly if you’re experiencing symptoms such as groin or hip pain, difficulty walking or swelling. A faulty implant can lead to tissue death, bone dissolution or – as Stryker itself stated - “excessive metal debris” in the body.
If you’re health or well-being has been compromised by one of these products, you may be eligible to participate in a class action lawsuit against Stryker. You could be entitled to compensation. Damages may be due to you in several areas: reimbursement for hospital bills and other medical expenses; lost income; the cost of caregivers. In addition, you could be awarded punitive damages.
