The New Jersey Multicounty Litigation established in Bergen County Superior Court for all Stryker hip lawsuit (http://www.strykerhiprecallclaims.com/) claims involving Rejuvenate and ABG II Modular-Neck Hip Stems held its most recent Case Management Conference on November 18, 2013, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to an Order issued that same day, the Court will embark on Phase I of early mediation next month, with mediation sessions scheduled for a number of Stryker Hip recall claims beginning on December 4, 2013. According to the Order, the parties have also been directed to meet and confer on the selection of cases for Phase II of early mediation no later than December 16, 2013. (In Re Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Stem and the ABG II Modular Hip Stem Litigation, No. 296)

“We are representing a number of plaintiffs who have Stryker hip lawsuits pending in this litigation. We are pleased to see these cases moving forward, and look ahead to even greater progress in the year to come,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices.

Stryker Hip Recall
Court documents indicate that since the Stryker hip recall for Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems was announced in July 2012, more than 900 product liability lawsuits alleging injury due to the components have been filed in courts around the country. In addition to 553 Stryker hip lawsuits pending in New Jersey, another 395 have also 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) All of the claims pending in these proceedings involve similar allegations regarding the recalled components’ association with serious complications, including metallosis, adverse local tissue reactions, necrosis, and failure of the hip, that are the result of fretting and corrosion at the modular-neck junction.

Stryker announced a worldwide recall of Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems in July 2012. According to the company, fretting and corrosion of the hip stems puts patients at risk for adverse local tissue reactions, pain, swelling, and other complications that may necessitate revision of the hip. The company has advised all individuals affected by the Stryker hip recall to undergo medical screening, including blood tests for metal ion levels and cross-sectional imaging, even if they are not experiencing any symptoms that might indicate a problem.*

Alleged victims of complications related to Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems may be entitled to financial compensation from Stryker.
