Stryker Corporation, based in Kalamazoo, Michigan has agreed to settle lawsuits involving thousands of patients who had to have defective hip implants surgically removed. The company had recalled the defective hip implant devices back in 2012. Since that time, lawsuits have been filed in thirty-nine states on behalf of patients who suffered harm from the hip replacement implants.
The total amount of the settlements are expected to be in excess of $ 1 billion dollars, an extraordinary amount but reflective the significant harm that this medical device caused to patients. In announcing the settlement, attorneys for plaintiffs described it as one of the largest of its kind that compensates patients “whose lives have been deteriorated, and in some cases destroyed, by the pain, disabilities, and revision surgeries brought on by these defective hip replacement devices.”
Those who have already filed claims and lawsuits will be notified by their attorneys regarding their settlement status. Patients who have not yet retained a Stryker hip lawyer should do so immediately to make sure they are included in the settlement.
