The 2012 recall of Stryker’s Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implants came too late for people who had already experienced painful complications, failed joints and revision surgeries associated with the defective devices. Many patients
were led to believe that these implants would be safe, only to have Stryker recall the devices less than 3 years after they hit the market because it failed to properly test the devices and assess the potential risks and side
effects. Their Risks and side effects should have been assessed before they were even approved.
This is why Stryker is facing hundreds of lawsuits, with more likely to come. The Wall Street Journal reported in October 2013 that Stryker expects to spend between $700 million and $1.13 billion to resolve these suits.
Sadly, there has been an epidemic of dangerous and defective hip implant products being sold in the US over the past 10 years, with the dangers of these products coming to light over the last few years. In March 2013, a Montana man was awarded more than $8.3 million after a trial for injuries he sustained from a hip implant made by DePuy, a division of Johnson & Johnson. People injured by Stryker’s hip implants should seek similar justice with the help of an experienced attorney.
