Lancaster, PA (PRWEB) July 20, 2012
Stryker Orthopedics recently announced the recall of two devices used in hip replacement surgeries: Rejuvenate and ABG II. The Lancaster law firm of Atlee Hall, LLP is now offering case evaluations to help hip recall victims navigate through the complex recall waters and help make sure their rights are protected.
Stryker terminated distribution of the two hip replacement devices after fears of corrosion of the metal-on-metal components, which they said could lead to pain, swelling and adverse reactions in surrounding tissue. According to Stryker, the recall is due to post-market surveillance, meaning that there have already been several complaints of problems with the devices.
“Hip recalls are not like bringing your car in to the shop to have your floor mats fixed, we are dealing with real human losses to real people who need help,” said Jaime D. Jackson, Esq. a lawyer at Atlee Hall, LLP who specializes in products liability.
This is not Stryker’s first recall over metal-on-metal hip replacement devices. In April, Stryker recalled the Accolade femoral stem, which was used with the MITCH TRH modular head/acetabular cup, due to significantly high revision rates.
The experienced injury lawyers at Atlee Hall, LLP are evaluating possible lawsuits on behalf of victims injured by Stryker’s defective hip implant components. They are dedicated to fight for the rights of all victims and get them the compensation they deserve. They are offering consultations to victims to help them through this difficult time.
