Stryker Hip Replacement Lawsuits
Stryker Orthopaedics agreed to settle outstanding claims against the company regarding its LFIT V40 femoral head implant. The agreement may potentially cover other Stryker hip implants like Accolade TMZF, Accolade 2, Citation, Meridian, and Rejuvenate as well. While the terms of this agreement are confidential, in 2014 Stryker agreed to a $1 billion settlement to resolve claims made by patients who received the company’s recalled Rejuvenate and ABGII hips and endured a revision surgery. Hip replacement lawyers were instrumental in reaching these settlement agreements. If you or a loved one suffered injuries from a metal-on-metal hip implant, please call our firm.
These are the more serious complications you may face if you had a Stryker hip implant:
- Complex revision surgeries
- Fretting of materials
- Corrosion of materials
- Problems while walking or not being able to walk
- Swelling of your hip
- Loosening of the implant within your body
- Bone fracture within the implant site
- High levels of metal toxicity
More than 20,000 patients across the country received the implants before the Stryker hip recall in July 2012. The first Rejuvenate hip lawsuit was filed a month later. Plaintiffs are leveling a variety of charges against the manufacturer, including negligence, failure to warn, and defective design.
