A man who received a faulty hip replacement in 2012 has filed a Stryker hip implant lawsuit against the company. The hip replacement the man received was recalled later in 2012, but he was not informed until 2014, when he went to the emergency room to deal with pain and complications related to the implant.
Stryker issued a hip replacement recall for its Rejuvenate and ABG II implants in 2012 after studies found the devices were much more likely to fail and cause serious complications than other implants. The company set aside more than $1.4 billion to settle faulty hip implant lawsuits related to the Rejuvenate and ABG II.
The settlement is expected to include more than 10,000 Stryker lawsuits, though eligible patients have the option to file a separate lawsuit. Stryker joins several other device manufacturers who have been sued by patients who suffered injuries from their hip devices, such as pain, tissue damage, premature loosening of the hip joint and toxic levels of metal in the blood stream.
