New York, New York (PRWEB) November 16, 2012
Stryker hip recall lawsuits prompted by the company’s recent recall of Rejuvenate and ABG II Modular Hip Stems continue to mount, as Stryker announces that David Floyd, former CEO of DePuy Orthopeadics, will now head up its orthopedics unit, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. The company is facing at least 10 Stryker Rejuvenate lawsuits in New Jersey Superior Court, and plaintiffs have requested that all such claims filed in the state be assigned to Judge Brian Martinotti in Bergen County.* According to a report from MassDevice.com, Floyd left DePuy Orthopaedics in March, amid the fallout over the August 2010 DePuy ASR hip implant recall.**
“We expect that those impacted by this recall will continue to file Stryker Rejuvenate lawsuits in New Jersey and elsewhere, adding to the challenges Mr. Floyd will face in his new position,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The firm is currently offering free legal evaluations to anyone affected by the recent Stryker hip recall.
Stryker Rejuvenate Recall
On July 6, 2012, Stryker issued a recall of its Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Modular Hip Stems due to a potential for fretting and corrosion at the modular-neck junction. According to the Stryker hip recall notice, patients with the Rejuvenate or AGB II hip implant components may develop adverse local tissue reactions that could manifest with symptoms of pain and/or swelling. Some 20,000 of the affected implants had been sold prior to the Stryker hip recall, the company said.***
Bernstein Liebhard LLP is offering free lawsuit consultations to anyone impacted by the Stryker Rejuvenate recall. Individuals who have endured hip implant failures, metal poisoning, pain, or revision surgery allegedly due to the Rejuvenate and AGB modular neck-stems may be entitled to file a Stryker hip recall lawsuit seeking compensation for their medical care, pain and suffering, and other damages. A wealth of information regarding the Stryker Rejuvenate recall is available at Bernstein Liebhard LLP’s Stryker hip recall website. Free lawsuit evaluations can be obtained by calling 877-779-1414.
