A Stryker hip replacement lawsuit settlement was reached in November 2014, but lawyers continue to file Stryker lawsuits on behalf of recipients of failed metal-on-metal Stryker hip implants.
Stryker Orthopedics recalled its Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implants in 2012. The Stryker hip recall was announced after a number of patients were required to undergo a revision surgery after suffering metal poisoning from debris in the blood stream caused by the metal hip components grinding together.
The November Stryker settlement will include patients who had a failed Stryker Rejuvenate or ABG II and had a revision before November 3, 2014.
Individuals who have a failed Stryker hip replacement but have not yet undergone a revision surgery are not eligible for compensation under the recent settlement, but they may still be eligible to file a Stryker hip lawsuit to seek justice and compensation for their injuries. Pennsylvania personal injury Thomas Anapol, who assisted in the settlement negotiations, is available to assist Stryker hip recipients awaiting revision.
