Stryker Hip Lawsuits: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Issuance of New Orders in New Jersey Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Litigation

New York, New York (PRWEB) May 03, 2013

Stryker hip replacement lawsuits stemming from the recent recall of Rejuvenate and ABG II Modular-Neck hip stems continue to move forward in New Jersey Superior Court. According to Orders issued by the Court on April 29th, Defendants have consented to the use of long and short form complaints submitted by Plaintiffs’ attorneys last month. (In re Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Stem and the ABG II Modular Hip Stem Litigation, No. 296)

“The issuance of these orders will allow Stryker hip lawsuits to move forward in this litigation more efficiently. We look forward to more progress in this proceeding in the coming months,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is actively filing Stryker hip replacement lawsuits in the New Jersey litigation, and continues to offer free legal evaluations to individuals affected by the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip recall.

Stryker Hip Replacement Lawsuits
Court documents indicate that at least 145 Stryker hip lawsuits have already been filed in the New Jersey litigation. Last month, Bergen County Superior Court Judge Brian R. Martinotti set forth procedures for the parties to begin selecting cases to move forward toward early medication. However, his order stipulated that the case against Stryker will continue while mediation takes place. The next Case Management Conference in the Stryker hip replacement litigation has been scheduled for May 15th.

Earlier this year, a number of plaintiffs in federally-filed Stryker hip replacement lawsuits petitioned the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) to establish a consolidated proceeding for those claims in a single federal court. Oral Arguments on the matter have been scheduled for May 30th. (In Re: Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, Case Pending No. 20 (JPML))

The Stryker hip recall was announced in July 2012, after the Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems were found to be prone to fretting and corrosion at the modular neck junction.    Plaintiffs in Stryker hip lawsuits allege this has caused them to suffer local tissue reactions manifesting with pain and/or swelling, and other adverse outcomes including metallosis, necrosis and osteolysis. Stryker has advised recipients of Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems to undergo blood tests for elevated metal ion levels and cross sectional imaging to ensure the components are functioning properly, even in the absence of symptoms.*

Plaintiffs allegedly affected by the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip recall may be entitled to file a Stryker hip lawsuit to obtain compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
