New York, New York (PRWEB) December 02, 2013
Hundreds of Stryker hip lawsuit (http://www.strykerhiprecallclaims.com/) claims alleging injury due to Rejuvenate and ABG II Modular-Neck Hip Stems continue to move forward in a multicounty litigation underway in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court. According to court documents, the proceeding’s next Case Management Conference has been scheduled for December 16, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. Court records indicate that over 550 product liability claims have been filed in New Jersey following the July 2012 announcement of the Stryker hip recall for Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems. (In Re Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Stem and the ABG II Modular Hip Stem Litigation, No. 296)

Stryker Hip Lawsuits
The worldwide Stryker hip recall for Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems was announced on July 6, 2012, after it became apparent that the metal components had been subject to a high rate of fretting and corrosion at the modular-neck junction. This occurrence may result in a number of serious complications that could necessitate revision of the hip, including adverse local tissue reactions, pain, and swelling. To ensure that Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems are performing as intended, Stryker has advised all individuals implanted with the recalled components to undergo medical screening, even if they are not experiencing any symptoms that might indicate a problem.*
Since the recall was issued, hundreds of Rejuvenate and ABG II recipients have filed Stryker hip lawsuits seeking compensation for injuries allegedly caused by the components. In addition to the claims pending in New Jersey, court records indicate that another 395 cases have been filed in a federal multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, District of Minnesota. (In re: Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2441) According to court documents, plaintiffs in these claims similarly allege that they suffered metallosis, adverse local tissue reactions, necrosis, failure of the hip, and other disabling complications due to the defective nature of the devices.
Individuals who were allegedly harmed by Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
