The Stryker hip was recalled in July 2012 after the FDA issued a serious safety warning. Many patients were suffering serious injuries from the hip implants. In November 2014, Stryker agreed to settle thousands of lawsuits victims filed against them. They has put aside more than $1.4 billion, with a base award of $300,000 per settlement that will be adjusted up or down depending on the facts of your case. This settlement applies to people who had a Stryker Rejuvenate or a Stryker ABG II hip implant that failed and resulted in a revision surgery.
The settlement program has a deadline to participate. In order to be involved in this round of settlement offers, you have to submit a claim to Stryker by March 2015. If your claim qualifies, then the anticipated payout on the cases is summer of 2015. An experienced Stryker hip implant attorney can help you determine whether or not you qualify for the settlement.
