In June 2012, Stryker Orthopaedics recalled the Stryker Rejuvenate Modular Primary Hip System and the Stryker ABG II modular hip stems. Thousands of persons in the U.S. were implanted with these devices from 2007 through 2012.
In November 2014, Stryker announced a settlement of the lawsuits brought by patients with faulty Rejuvenate or ABG II hips. This settlement is valued at over $1 billion. It provides a base payment of $300,000 to patients who received the Rejuvenate or ABG II hips and underwent revision surgery by November 3, 2014.
My Stryker Hip Failed After November 2014 or Is Failing Now and Must Be Replaced. What Should I Do?
The short answer is, please contact our law firm today.
If your Stryker Rejuvenate or ABG II hip system failed and you underwent revision surgery to replace it after November 3, 2014, or if it fails in the future, you are not eligible for payment under the settlement described above.
However, you retain your rights to file a lawsuit against Stryker and seek compensation for the injuries you suffered as result of the implant failing. Keep in mind though, the statute of limitations (the deadline to file a lawsuit) varies by state and may preclude you from filing a claim if you do not contact an attorney promptly.
If you received a recalled Stryker hip implant, even if you did not qualify for payment under the November 2014 settlement program, we welcome your inquiry.
