Stryker Hip Replacement Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Upcoming Oral Arguments for Proposed Stryker Hip Recall Multidistrict Litigation

New York, New York (PRWEB) May 26, 2013

A panel of federal judges will soon consider whether or not federally-filed Stryker hip replacement lawsuit claims should be consolidated before a single federal judge for pretrial proceedings. According to a notice posted on the website for the U.S. Judicial Panel for Multidistrict Litigation (JPML), Oral Arguments will be heard on the matter on May 30th in Louisville, Kentucky. (In re: Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2441 (JPML))

“Based on the number of inquiries our Firm continues to receive from individuals affected by the Stryker hip recall, we expect a large number of filings. A consolidated proceeding would be an efficient process for handling these claims,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is representing clients in Stryker hip replacement lawsuits, and continues to offer free legal evaluations to individuals who have allegedly suffered serious complications associated with the Stryker hip recall for Rejuvenate and ABG II Modular-Neck Hip Stems.

Stryker Hip Recall
Stryker recalled its Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems in July 2012, after the metal components were found to be prone to fretting and corrosion at the modular neck junction. According to the Stryker hip recall notice, this occurrence could cause recipients to suffer pain and adverse local tissue reactions, as well as the need to have the hip replaced. Stryker has advised affected patients to undergo blood tests for elevated metal ion levels and cross sectional imaging to ensure their hips are functioning properly, even if they have not experienced symptoms described in the recall notice.*

Court documents show that dozens of Stryker hip replacement lawsuits are currently pending in various federal courts. Some plaintiffs have requested that the proposed multidistrict litigation be established in U.S. District Court, District of Minnesota, where the most claims are pending. Other plaintiffs have requested the lawsuits be transferred to the Northern District of Illinois.

According to court records from New Jersey, at least 145 Stryker hip recall claims have also been filed in a consolidated litigation underway in Bergen County Superior Court. A case management conference has been scheduled in that litigation for June 18th. (In re Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Stem and the ABG II Modular Hip Stem Litigation, No. 296)

Individuals allegedly affected by the Stryker hip recall for Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
