Stryker hip lawyers continue to file lawsuits after the global Stryker hip replacement lawsuit settlement.
Individuals with recalled Stryker Rejuvenate or ABG II that failed after November 2, 2014 are not subject to the Stryker hip recall settlement, but a Stryker hip lawsuit can be filed to seek justice and compensation for implant failure complications.
The November 3 settlement offered a base award of $300,000 for each plaintiff who suffered a failed hip replacement and filed a Stryker hip lawsuit. Anapol Schwartz Personal injury Lawyer Thomas Anapol assisted in the negotiations.
The settlement will also provide compensation for individuals who required a hip revision but could not undergo the surgery for medical reasons. Patients who need to undergo revision surgery but have not yet done so will need to file a Stryker hip lawsuit to be eligible for compensation.
Stryker issued a voluntary recall of the Rejuvenate and ABGII in 2012 due to the potential for fretting and corrosion of the components, which may result in adverse local tissue reactions, pain and swelling around the hip. Recipients of Stryker Rejuvenate and ABGII metal-on-metal hip implant are urged to have their blood tested for elevated levels of chromium and cobalt, which could signify the need for a revision surgery.
