After months of negotiations, a Stryker hip lawsuit settlement was announced on November 3, 2014.
The global settlement will provide a $300,000 base award to recipients of failed Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II modular metal on metal hip implants. The Stryker hip replacement lawsuit settlement will provide compensation to individuals who underwent a revision surgery and to those who need a revision surgery but are medically unable to undergo the procedure. Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II recipients who have not yet undergone a revision surgery may still file a Stryker lawsuit.
Stryker issued a voluntary recall in July 2012 due to the potential risk of complications such as metallosis caused by corrosion. As a result, many patients were forced to undergo a revision surgery.
If you suspect that you or a loved one received a faulty Stryker hip and may need to undergo a revision surgery, contact a hip implant lawyer to find out if you are eligible to file a Stryker hip lawsuit.
