The settlement in this case is extremely complex with respect to determining what an individual plaintiff is entitled to and is even more complex when it comes to the claims submission process.
Nationwide (PRWEB) November 03, 2014
In the wake of the recent announcement of Stryker Corporation’s decision to settle more than 6,000 lawsuits* arising from its recall of the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hips, attorneys at Kershaw|Talley recently launched a website to help individuals navigate the complexities of the settlement. The website, http://www.defectivehipsettlementcenter.com, contains a series of videos where attorneys provide answers to frequently asked questions about the Stryker settlement. The website describes how the settlement works, who qualifies for the settlement, and what steps affected individuals should take to participate in the settlement. The site also provides information as to how patients affected by the Stryker recall, who do not qualify for the settlement, can protect themselves going forward.
Attorney Stuart Talley notes, “The settlement in this case is extremely complex with respect to determining what an individual plaintiff is entitled to and is even more complex when it comes to the claims submission process. By launching this website, we attempt to provide information that will help guide those who have been affected by the recall.”
Additionally, Mr.Talley provided a specific warning to individuals who have not yet had their hip revised. He reports, “In every state there is a time limit by which individuals must bring a lawsuit. This is called the statute of limitations. In most states, the statute of limitations is two years. Often times, determining the date that the statute starts to run can be very tricky. Stryker could argue that the statute started running on the date your hip was recalled, even if you haven’t had any problems with it. Therefore, if you have a Stryker Rejuvenate or ABG II hip and have not yet had it replaced, it is very important to contact an attorney immediately. The settlement only covers people who actually have a case on file. If you wait to file a case until you have had a revision, you may be locked out of the settlement forever.”
