Stryker Hip Lawsuit News: Key Milestone Achieved in Federal Court Cases, Rottenstein Law Group LLP Reports
Date:10/22/2013

(PRWEB) October 22, 2013

Stryker lawsuits are progressing in federal cases, consolidated in federal court in Minnesota. A leadership structure for plaintiffs’ counsel was ordered, according to court documents. The Rottenstein Law Group LLP, which maintains a website on the Stryker lawsuits, notes that this is key to moving along the nearly 300 cases pending in court.

The formation allows for a single attorney or several attorneys to coordinate the pretrial efforts of any number of plaintiffs’ attorneys so that the cases are tried in a “just, speedy and inexpensive” manner, 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).*

“In this instance, Judge Donovan W. Frank is ordering the selection of a single lead counsel,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group LLP. “The court looks at certain criteria in making its decision for a single plaintiffs’ attorney to head up the plaintiffs’ side of the lawsuit consolidation, also called a ‘multidistrict litigation.’ These include experience with other MDLs, especially hip implant litigation. It helps to have experience working with other lawyers in these types of consolidations as well.”

Rottenstein said that what it means for Stryker plaintiffs in the MDL is that “coordination provides for an efficiency that would allow for lawsuits to get a chance at a trial and damages award more quickly than if a large number of lawyers were functioning on their own.”

Metal poisoning, AKA “metallosis,” is among the most frequently alleged side effects of metal-on-metal hip implants such as the Stryker ABG II and Rejuvenate, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.** The ailment occurs when metal debris from the friction among the implant’s metal components sheds into and accumulates in a patient’s bloodstream.

The Rottenstein Law Group LLP represents clients nationally in metal-on-metal hip implant lawsuits. RLG encourages hip implant patients to visit its Stryker hip lawsuits FAQ page for more information about Stryker side effects and lawsuits.
