Some 20,000 Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems were recalled after data indicated they were prone to fretting and corrosion at the modular neck stem. Stryker has since advised anyone fitted with one of these components to seek a clinical evaluation, even if they are asymptomatic, as some patients have exhibited high metal ion levels and adverse local tissue reactions, even in the absence of symptoms. Thousands of individuals affected by the Stryker hip recall may have already suffered serious complications, and could be facing risky revision surgery to have their components removed and replaced.
The attorneys at Bernstein Liebhard have successfully represented hundreds of people harmed by faulty medical devices, and will make sure you are treated fairly. A Stryker Rejuvenate lawyer can evaluate your possible lawsuit for free and discuss with you the best way to protect your legal rights. If you are concerned that you can’t afford an attorney to take your case, please do not worry. A Stryker hip attorney at our firm will represent you on a contingency-fee basis. This means you will only be obligated to pay attorneys’ fees or expenses if a recovery is made.
If you do decide to pursue a Stryker hip lawsuit, it’s important that you keep your Stryker Rejuvenate lawyer updated regarding your medical care.
