Pennsylvania personal injury lawyer, Thomas Anapol, who was instrumental in negotiating the November 2014 Stryker hip replacement lawsuit settlement, will continue to pursue Stryker hip lawsuits throughout 2015.
A voluntary Stryker hip recall was issued in July 2012 after the company received reports of metal poisoning caused by the device corroding inside the body. As a result, patients were required to have a hip revision surgery.
Under the terms of the November 2014 settlement, claimants who received a recalled Stryker Rejuvenate or ABG II and underwent revision surgery by November 2, 2014 are eligible for a $300,000 base award. Patients who had or are scheduled to undergo hip revision surgery after November 2, 2014 are not included in the Stryker hip replacement lawsuit settlement but may still be eligible for compensation.
Anyone who received a recalled Stryker Rejuvenate or ABG II and underwent a revision surgery after November 2, 2014 should contact a Stryker hip lawyer to find out if they are eligible for compensation.
