A hip implant is a serious medical procedure that can take weeks to fully recover from. Unfortunately, many people who have received hip implants manufactured by Stryker (both the Rejuvenate and ABG II models) may have to undergo additional procedures due to product defects.
People may find themselves in pain, unnecessarily. Cited problems with the hip implants include: squeaky joints, pain at the surgery site and the presence of damaging bacteria including Staphylococcus. Some of these implants may not have been fitted correctly during the implantation process and this may be responsible for bone fractures suffered by the patients.
The FDA eventually got involved. However, Stryker’s response to the defect reports was not awe inspiring. Therefore, the FDA took even more initiative in the process and started investigating the claims that were being made by injured patients.
The Defective Product Injury Lawyer’s Perspective:
If you or a loved one was seriously injured by the Stryker Rejuvenate or ABG II, speak with a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. In Virginia, North Carolina, and all other states, there is a statute of limitations for filing a claim against the manufacturer. This is a finite period of time to take legal action. Once the statute of limitations expires, you are barred from ever seeking an injury claim against the at-fault party.
