Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Implant Failure

Stryker voluntarily recalled its Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck stems from the market. The products were recalled due to reports of fretting and corrosion. According to some reports, the FDA received two adverse events linked to the recalled devices, including one in which the device was removed.

People who filed Stryker lawsuits accuse the company of selling and marketing a defective device and failing to warn the public, among other claims. They also claim that Stryker was negligent because it failed to adequately design the Rejuvenate and ABG II hip devices to ensure that they would not deteriorate, fret or corrode.

People who received a Rejuvenate or ABG II implant may suffer injuries. Medical device makers like Stryker have a duty to properly design their products and warn the public about any risks. A qualified attorney can protect your rights and help you find out if you have a claim and also file a claim for compensation.

Stryker says the recall and lawsuits could cost it $1.3 billion. The manufacturer settled four hip lawsuits in December 2013 for an undisclosed amount. If you file a lawsuit, there are several types of compensation you may be eligible to receive, including:

  • Medical expenses (doctor’s visits, pain medication, revision surgery)
  • Other compensatory damages (home health care and lost income)
  • Pain and suffering (physical suffering, mental and emotional suffering)
  • Loss of consortium (damage to relationship with spouse)
  • Punitive damages (awards to discourage similar negligence)

As of May 2013, more than 160 Stryker hip recall lawsuits have been filed in a consolidated litigation currently underway in New Jersey's Bergen County Superior Court. Eighty-one claims have already been filed in the New Jersey litigation early in 2013. Plaintiffs in the federally-filed Stryker hip replacement lawsuits petitioned the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) to establish a consolidated proceeding for those claims in a single federal court.

A case management conference has been scheduled. The lawsuits claim that patients with Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stem recall are entitled to compensation for lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering.
