“Our Firm has filed numerous Stryker hip lawsuits in the multicounty litigation underway in New Jersey, and we continue to hear from individuals who were allegedly harmed by Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems. It is not at all surprising that the number of filings continues to increase,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm continues to offer free legal evaluations to individuals affected by the Stryker hip recall.

Stryker Hip Recall
The Stryker hip recall was announced by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration on July 6, 2012, after it was determined that fretting and corrosion of the Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems places recipients at risk for adverse local tissue reactions, pain and swelling. In addition, Stryker has recommended that all patients fitted with one of these devices undergo medical testing and imaging screening to ensure it is working properly, even if they have not experienced any symptoms that would suggest a problem with their implant.*

Since the Stryker hip recall was issued more than two years ago, court documents indicate that thousands of people have filed lawsuits seeking compensation for serious and debilitating complications allegedly caused by defective Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems. In addition to the claims pending in New Jersey, more than 1,700 lawsuits involving similar allegations have been filed in a federal multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, District of Minnesota. (In re: Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, No. 244)

Individuals who were allegedly harmed by Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other injury-related damages.
