Stryker Hip Implant Lawsuit
Metal poisoning, bone fractures and painful complications are commonly reported by those with Stryker hip implants. In 2012, the devices were recalled after numerous reports of adverse events.

Stryker Hip Implant Injuries
Our team of lawyers are currently looking to represent patients who have been injured by these defective hip implants. Common injuries associated with the Stryker hip implant include:
Hip, leg or groin pain
Swelling at or near the hip joint
Shattering of the implants
Impaired kidney function
Audible noises with movement (popping, clicking or squeaking)
After enduring these painful injuries or suffering from metal poisoning, also known as metallosis, many victims have to undergo revision surgery. If you believe you or someone you love has been a victim of Stryker hip implants, contact us.
Shortly after the 2012 recall, Stryker announced it would be reimbursing patients for testing, treatment and revision surgery related to its defective devices. The company did not clarify if it would cover costs related to pain and suffering or wages lost as a result of pain, discomfort and time off for revision surgery.
By 2014, the company agreed to begin settling thousands of Stryker hip implant lawsuits. Unfortunately, Stryker will ultimately decide how much each victim receives. Our firm understands that only a medical device victim knows truly how much suffering they have endured as a result of a defective product.
We believe victims should receive the MAXIMUM amount of compensation they deserve
