(PRWEB) April 06, 2013
A Massachusetts woman filed on March 26 what is believed to be the first federal Stryker ABG II Hip Lawsuit in the nation, according to court records. The Rottenstein Law Group, a Stryker hip recall law firm, will follow the case closely and maintains a Stryker Hip Replacement Recall Center with information on Stryker side effects and Stryker lawsuits, as well as news updates.
Plaintiffs Lisa and Brett Lincoln filed the lawsuit (Lincoln et al v. Howmedica Osteonics Corp., d/b/a Stryker Orthopeadics, 1:13-cv-10689-WGY, U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts) seeking damages related to what they allege is a defective device, according to court documents.
“There are already several Stryker hip lawsuits pending regarding the company’s Rejuvenate hip replacement,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group. “That someone filed a federal lawsuit regarding the ABG II hip stem implant is then perhaps not surprising.”
The Rottenstein Law Group manages an informational website designed to help those who believe they have suffered injuries evaluate if they are eligible to file a Stryker hip injury lawsuit.
In July 2012 Stryker, based in Kalamazoo, Mich., announced a recall of both its Rejuvenate and ABG II hip replacements because of a potential for corrosion and fretting that could result in adverse local tissue reactions and possible pain and swelling around the hip, according to Stryker’s website.**
