Stryker Hip Injury Claims Number Nearly 400 in Federal Court, Rottenstein Law Group LLP Reports

The Stryker lawsuits involve two of the company’s metal-on-metal hip implant products, the Rejuvenate and the ABG II, both recalled in 2012. Claims against Stryker range from metal poisoning to device failure, according to court documents (In re: Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation; MDL-2441, U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota). The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued a warning about metal-on-metal hip implants that supports claimants’ allegations.*

The news about the increase in cases follows Stryker’s announcement that it will set aside between $700 million and more than $1 billion for metal-on-metal hip-related litigation, according to an Oct. 23 Wall Street Journal report.** Stryker recalled the metal-on-metal hip implants in July 2012.
