HACKENSACK, N.J., Sept. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Company, announced today that they expect the Stryker Hip litigation cases to continue to expand with new cases being filed every day while more of the implanted hips fail as more time goes on from the original implant date. Recent court filings in both New Jersey and Minnesota indicate that over 2K lawsuits have been filed already against Stryker's AGB II and Rejuvenate hips. According to the Stryker Complaints, four plaintiffs have alleged that they have already undergone surgery to remove their hip stems; however, the lawsuits are expected to drag on for the foreseeable future as the first Stryker bellwether trials are not set until the summer of 2015 in some jurisdictions.
Patty Kirby, Head of Client Relations, commented on the increase in Stryker plaintiffs filing suit, "Now that the recall has been over 2 years ago, we are starting to see many plaintiffs filing suit as the Stryker hips, including the AGB II and Rejuvenate, are beginning to fail at higher rates as time goes by and public awareness is increased. Our lawsuit funding applications on all of the Stryker products, including the Accolade Hip, have gone up significantly over the last few months because of this. We expect this number to rise as more cases enter the system which we are told could top close to 5K cases or more when it is all said and done."

The Stryker Hip products and stem products are known to cause toxic debris to enter into the bloodstream and cause numerous side effects. The side effects include, but are not limited to: inflammation, swelling, tissue damage, and metal blood poisoning – which is referred to as metallosis. Patients who have implants of the recalled products are being advised by medical personnel to get their blood checked for high metal levels in the bloodstream even if they are not showing signs of hip failure from the hip products. If blood levels are found to be elevated, then a revision surgery to remove the defective hip implant is typically advised, or the patient faces possible serious health risks from blood poisoning.
Stryker Hip patients who have required revision surgery could be in position to receive large lawsuit settlement amounts if they are successful in winning their lawsuits against Stryker. In past Hip litigations that Legal-Bay has worked on, including but not limited to: Zimmer, DePuy, and Biomet hip settlements, awards of $200K or more have been received by patients who have obtained a revision surgery due to defects of implants, including metallosis.
Legal-Bay urges patients who are suffering from side effects from the Stryker Hip products or any other hip manufacturers, including the Wright Profemur Hip System, to seek legal consultation immediately, because the time to file a lawsuit claim could be winding down in some jurisdictions. Legal-Bay works with some of the top Stryker law firms and Stryker hip recall lawyers in the country and can assist you with obtaining a free legal consultation.
