Lawyers for Hip Surgery Lawsuit

Lawyers Fred Pritzker and David Szerlag are leading our Stryker recall and hip surgery litigation team.  They recently won over $40,000,000 for clients injured by another medical product and are available for a free consultation regarding a lawsuit for personal injury compensation against Stryker Orthopaedics, the manufacturer of two recalled products:

  • The Stryker ABG II modular-neck stem used for total hip replacement surgery and
  • The Stryker Rejuvinate modular-neck stem hip implant.

Stryker recalled both of these products on July 4, 2012 because the metal of the neck and stem can corrode, releasing toxic metal ions that can damage tissue and bones around the hip implant.  This can cause severe pain, inflammation, metal poisoning (metallosis from chromium and cobalt), tissue death (necrosis), bone damage, pseudotumers, gait issues, and other serious problems. Revision surgery (to remove and replace the recalled Stryker hip product) may be required.

Should You Sue Stryker for Personal Injury Compensation?

Stryker developed, manufactured and sold a defective product, and you were injured by it. You have the legal right to sue Stryker for personal injury compensation, including the following:

  • Medical expenses;
  • Lost income;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Emotional distress;
  • Disability;
  • Loss of quality of life;
  • And other damages.

Our job as attorneys is to help you get the compensation you deserve and thereby hold Stryker accountable for the harm it caused. These kinds of lawsuits generally involve claims based on strict liability (if you sold it, you are responsible), negligence and breach of contract (you “bought” the product because you were told it worked, but it has failed).

The value of your claim is based on a number of factors. We will help you build a winning case by spending the time needed to fully understand how this product and the resulting revision surgery have adversely affected your life.
