Stryker Hip Implant Lawyer
“Stryker Orthopaedics initiated a voluntary recall of its ABG II Modular Hip System and Rejuvenate Modular Hip System in June 2012 due to potential risks associated with these products. Since the voluntary recall, patients who were implanted with one or more of these products have filed lawsuits throughout the country. Stryker’s counsel and the attorneys representing these patients negotiated this settlement in various coordinated proceedings. This settlement is a means to resolve claims from eligible patients in a fair, timely and efficient manner, regardless of whether they filed a lawsuit. Patients do not need to be represented by an attorney in order to participate in the Settlement Program.”
On November 3, 2014, Stryker agreed to a global settlement program (estimated at $1.4 billion) for those who had a recalled hip implant and who had revision surgery prior to November 3, 2014. The minimum award of $300,000 to most victims is said to be the largest ever in failed hip replacement litigation and comes with few reductions. Qualified victims are also entitled to future compensation over the next two years, even if their case is settled.
