New Jersey Stryker Litigation to Hold Status Conference in September, Parties to Discuss Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Replacements, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports
Date:8/16/2014

New York, NY (PRWEB) August 16, 2014

A metal hip litigation underway in New Jersey is looking ahead to its September status conference, when parties will discuss matters related to Stryker hip lawsuits (http://www.injurybeacon.com/hip-replacement/stryker/) involving the Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck hip stems, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports.

A calendar updated on the Bergen County court’s website indicates that a Case Management Conference is scheduled to take place on September 22nd at 1:00 p.m. The meeting will involve lawsuits filed over the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip replacements, which were voluntarily recalled in July 2012 after company data revealed their potential to fret and corrode at the modular-neck junction. In the two years since the Stryker hip recall, thousands of claims have been filed in the New Jersey litigation on behalf of patients who claim to have experienced pain, swelling and symptoms associated with metallosis after receiving either of the devices. (In Re Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Stem and the ABG II Modular Hip Stem Litigation, No. 296)

“We look forward to New Jersey Stryker litigation’s upcoming conference in September, as we continue to represent clients who claim to have been injured by the Rejuvenate and/or ABG II hip replacements,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is offering free and confidential case evaluations to individuals who were allegedly injured by these metal implants, and may be eligible to file a lawsuit.

Stryker Hip Lawsuits

According to court documents in New Jersey, a total of 2,064 Stryker hip lawsuits had been filed in Bergen County as of July 22nd. These lawsuits were filed on behalf of patients who received the hip replacements prior to their recall two years earlier, before suffering complications that may have necessitated revision surgery to remove and replace the hip once it failed prematurely. Claims alleging chronic pain, metallosis, osteolysis, tissue necrosis, and other complications from the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip devices similarly accuse their manufacturer, Stryker Orthopaedics, of failing to adequately warn about these side effects prior to the July 2012 recall.

Following the company action, Stryker advised on its website that all hip recipients should undergo routine medical testing and cross-sectional imaging to monitor for signs of early hip failure.*

Court records indicate that over 1,692 lawsuits involving the Rejuvenate and ABG II hip replacements have also been filed in the U.S. District Court, District of Minnesota, where a federal litigation is continuing to move forward. (In re: Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, No. 244)

Individuals who were allegedly harmed by Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems may be eligible to file their own Stryker hip lawsuit. Learn more about Stryker hip lawsuits when you visit Bernstein Liebhard LLP’s website, or call 800-511-5092 to arrange for a free, no-obligation case review.
