What Type OF Stryker Hip Injury Did You Suffer?
Like DePuy hip implants, the dangers of Stryker hip implants have been a documented fact for years. In July 2012, Stryker issued a voluntary recall of two of its products, the Rejuvenate and ABG II Modular Neck Hip Stems.
The dangers involve complications resulting from corrosion of metallic elements in the device. Numerous medical terms are associated with these risks. For example, “fretting” is corrosion that causes serious deterioration of muscles and bones.
Adverse tissue reactions and major organ damage are also possible when metallic elements from hip implants start breaking down within the body. In short, Stryker hip implants carry undue risks of metal poisoning — and if you or someone you care about has experienced that, it is time to consider your legal options.
Asserting Your Rights Through Litigation
Numerous lawsuits have already been filed against Stryker for defective hip implants. Some suits have been grouped together in a type of proceeding called multidistrict litigation (MDL).
The details of these legal proceedings get pretty complicated. What you need to know now is that you are not alone in having been harmed by a Stryker hip implant.
