Stryker Hip Replacement Class Action Lawsuit
The Clark Firm, LLP is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but our lawyers are not currently pursuing a Stryker hip replacement class action lawsuit. In the United States, most large and complex medical device litigation is not resolved through class actions. Instead, individual personal injury lawsuits are often centralized in a federal Multi-District Litigation (MDL).
Personal injury lawsuit damages may include:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical expenses
- Future care or rehabilitation
- Lost income or employment
- Permanent disability (decreased walking ability)
- Decreased quality of life
- Punitive damages
- And more
What’s the Difference Between a Class Action and an MDL?
The MDL process is similar to a class action lawsuit. However, there are some important differences:
- Unlike a class action, individual plaintiffs retains their own legal council.
- Independent lawsuits remain independent instead of being consolidated with other claims.
- Any settlement or compensation awarded to an individual plaintiff in an MDL does not need to be shared with other members of a class action.
- Individual plaintiffs’ lawyers fight for the maximum amount of compensation their client deserves.
What is a Class Action Lawsuit?
When most people think about large, centralized litigations, they think about a class action lawsuit. This popular type of litigation involves many people with similar claims. All of the claims are consolidated into one claim, one “class representative” is chosen to represent everyone, and one law firm typically argues for compensation on behalf of the entire group.
Stryker Lawsuits Centralized in Federal Litigation
In June 2013, Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II lawsuits were centralized in a Multi-District Litigation (MDL) in the U.S. District Court for Minnesota under Judge Donovan W. Frank. Stryker hip replacement class action lawsuits could be transferred here:
Defective Stryker Hip Replacement Problems
The problem with the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip replacements is the “modular-neck” design. Although this was intended to improve the fit of the implant to match each patient’s biomechanics. Instead, the metal-on-metal component has been associated with corrosion and fretting.
Stryker hip replacement problems can include:
- Pain, inflammation, swelling
- Joint infection
- Decreased walking ability
- Loose or unstable hip
- Bone fracture
- Soft-tissue damage
- Bone loss (osteolysis)
- Metal poisoning (metallosis)
- Nerve damage
- Revision surgery
