Many problems have been associated with the faulty Stryker hip implant recall. According the FDA, there have been numerous reports from patients about serious side affects associated with the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck stems hip implants. Now the company faces many lawsuits as a result of these faulty hip implants.
Earlier in April 2013, a judge recommended that the Stryker hip lawsuits that were consolidated in New Jersey in January should all go through mediation.
There are currently 50 Stryker lawsuits consolidated in Bergen County with hundreds more expected in the next few months alone. It is Judge Brian R. Martinotti who is overseeing these Stryker hip implant lawsuits. In the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II, according to court documents for New Jersey MCL-296, the Plaintiffs are alleging that one of the side effects of these faulty hip implants is metal poisoning.
Childers, Schlueter & Smith have been monitoring updates regarding metal-on-metal hip replacement trials and lawsuits. Apparently, each side will pick five cases for mediation. Depending on how they go, more cases may go down the same route towards mediation in the months ahead.
It was on July 6, 2012, Stryker issued a voluntary recall of its Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck stems. Some of the problems associated with the faulty hip implants include:
