Stryker Hip Recall Settlement

Stryker Hip Recall Settlement Makes Compensation Available to Victims

Patients who had a Stryker Rejuvenate or Stryker ABG II Hip Stem implanted and are experiencing complications may be entitled to receive compensation. On November 4, 2014, a landmark settlement was announced, making it possible for victims of defective Stryker hip implants to obtain money for damages without going to court.

Am I Entitled to Compensation?

The settlement agreement that Stryker has reached to resolve claims arising from defective hip implants will provide compensation to qualifying claimants. There is no cap on the amount to be paid out, but estimates suggest that more than $1 billion in total funds will be available to compensate victims who experienced complications due to defective hip implants.

Patients may qualify if they have experienced problems with the Stryker Rejuvenate or Stryker ABG II Hip Stem including, but not limited to:

  • Fluid in the joints
  • Pseudo-tumors
  • Bone dissolution
  • Tissue or bone necrosis
  • Metal toxicity or hypersensitivity
  • Inflamed synovial membrane

If you are experiencing these or other problems, removal of the Stryker hip products is generally the only treatment method available. Patients who had a qualifying revision surgery at a U.S. hospital 180 days after the device was implemented, and before November 3, 2014 are eligible for compensation through the Stryker settlement.

The surgery must have occurred as a result of the following:

  • Elevated cobalt blood test
  • Diagnostic scan showing abnormalities
  • Pathological finding of tissue damage
  • Inter-operative finding of tissue damage

Patients who were forced to undergo surgery to remove the hip implant may be entitled to a base payment of up to $300,000 as part of the Stryker settlement reached in November 2014. The specific available payment amount will be based on age and whether you had a prior hip implant surgery before the procedure in which the Stryker device was used. Patients who underwent surgery on both hips using a Stryker Rejuvenate or Stryker ABG II Hip Stem will be entitled to a base payment of up to $600,000.

Patients who experienced serious health problems resulting from the defective hip implant may be entitled to additional compensation above and beyond the base payments. Damages between $10,000 and $600,000 will be provided in addition to the base payment for problems including post-operative infections, repeat revision surgeries, heart attacks, strokes, hip dislocations or death resulting from the surgical procedures. Patients who experienced a loss of wages may also be entitled to compensation. The amount of money you are entitled to receive will not be reduced as a result of smoking, diabetes or related medical conditions.
