Stryker Hip Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Hearing Scheduled on Remand of Stryker Hip Recall Claim to State Court

New York, New York (PRWEB) November 07, 2013

As Stryker hip lawsuit ( claims continue to be filed in courts around the country, Bernstein Liebhard LLP notes that Stryker Corp. recently filed a brief in U.S. District Court, District of Minnesota, opposing the remand of one Stryker hip recall claim to California state court. The lawsuit, which was filed on behalf of a California resident who received a Rejuvenate hip stem in May 2010, only to have it removed in June 2012, was originally brought in Sacramento County Superior Court. Judge Donovan W. Frank has scheduled a hearing on the mater for November 21, 2013. (Akin v. Stryker Corp., et al., No. 0:13-cv-01811 (D. Minn.))

“These types of remand motions and hearings are not uncommon in the mass torts arena. As to the underlying Stryker recall lawsuit at issue, many of our Stryker clients’ claims echo the injuries described,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm continues to offer free Stryker hip lawsuit evaluations to individuals who allegedly suffered serious and debilitating complications due to the Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems.

Stryker Hip Lawsuits
The Stryker hip recall for Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems was announced on July 6, 2012, after Stryker determined that the metal devices were subject to a high rate of fretting and corrosion at the modular neck junction. In such cases, patients may experience pain, swelling and adverse local tissue reactions. However, the absence of symptoms is not a reliable indicator that a Rejuvenate or ABG II hip stem is functioning as intended. As such, the company has advised all individuals fitted with these components to undergo medical screening, regardless of their symptoms.*

Court documents indicate that more than 700 Stryker hip lawsuits have been filed since the Rejuvenate and ABG II stems were recalled last year. This includes 433 lawsuits pending in a multicounty litigation underway in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court, where Bernstein Liebhard LLP is actively filing claims. (In Re Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Stem and the ABG II Modular Hip Stem Litigation, No. 296) Some 346 Stryker hip recall claims are also pending in the multidistrict litigation underway in the District of Minnesota. (In re: Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2441) All of these lawsuits similarly allege that metal ions shed due to fretting and corrosion of the Stryker hip stems caused plaintiffs to suffer metallosis, adverse local tissue reactions, necrosis, osteolysis, and failure of the hip, often resulting in revision surgery to replace the device.

Alleged victims of complications associated with the Stryker hip recall may be eligible for compensation for injury-related damages, including out-of-pocket medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
