Stryker hip implants and orthopedic devices have been used in millions of patients around the world for injuries and chronic diseases. Unfortunately, the company recently recalled the popular Rejuvenate and ABG II hip replacement systems after studies showed serious health risks.
While there is no Stryker Class Action Lawsuit for those affected, lawyers are helping patients file individual lawsuits since the company failed to properly test the devices and has not offered adequate compensation to victims for all the treatment and damages related to metallic poisoning.
The Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implants were designed to allow surgeons to give patients a better fit with different-sized, interchangeable necks, stems, balls and cups. However, movement between the joined chromium, cobalt and titanium metal components can cause wear.
On July 6, 2012, Stryker recalled the Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck hip implant systems after warnings that the implants could experience corrosion and fretting, releasing metallic shavings into the bloodstream and surrounding tissue.
If you or a loved one received a Rejuvenate or ABG II hip implant, it is important to speak with a lawyer about your legal options. While there is no Stryker Hip Class Action Lawsuit, substantial compensation may be available. Contact us today.
Recent studies have shown that toxic metallic shavings in the body’s tissue, bone or the bloodstream can cause serious side effects including allergic reactions, bone loss, soft tissue damage, vision or hearing problems, or even tumors and cancer.
Since Stryker did not properly test these devices or warn patients of the dangers of metallic poisoning, they are liable for the damages caused. Lawyers are currently helping those affected file claims.
No one should file a lawsuit unless a company caused them harm. However, a lawyer can explain Stryker’s negligence in producing and selling these devices while they knew of the dangers.
