STRYKER HIP RECALL LAWSUITS SETTLEMENT INFORMATION 2014

A potential settlement of many already pending STRYKER HIP RECALL LAWSUITS was announced on November 3, 2014. This offer to settle cases is limited to those patients, or victims, that had a revision of their STRYKER REJUVENATE or ABGII modular hip stem. While this offer applies to those persons that already addressed their recalled hip, there are thousands of  potential claimants to which the potential settlement does not presently apply.  Our office continues to investigate any and all such claims on behalf of victims. You can speak directly with an attorney versed in the settlement and litigation by submitting a Confidential Request for Help.

STRYKER SETTLEMENT INFORMATION FROM 2013

As announced in December 2013, there have been a select number of lawsuits, or claims, involving theSTRYKER REJUVENATE that have been the subject of ongoing settlement negotiations. While settlement details remain confidential, between lawyers and their client(s), there have in fact been some cases that were settled with STRYKER.

In December 2013, Fierce Medical Devices reported in, “Stryker Agrees to Settle Four Metal Hip Lawsuits as Hundreds More Loom“, by Mark Hollmer, that four (4) claimants had successfully negotiated settlements through their STRYKER HIP RECALL LAWSUIT LAWYERS.

It is anticipated that STRYKER will continue to consider cases for settlement through legal process in a number of legal venues.
