Stryker Hip Implant Attorney
Why are some Hip Replacements so Dangerous?
"Fretting and corrosion." What does this mean to you? According to Stryker, the manufacturer of a popular hip implant, the medical device can wear at the contact surface and weaken slowly by chemical action. This is dangerous because fretting and corrosion of your hip replacement can cause swelling, pain, loss of mobility and harm to surrounding body tissue.
Why Are People with Recalled Hips Suing Stryker?
Patients who received Stryker’s Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck hip implant products are suing to hold the medical-device manufacturer accountable. Stryker released the alleged defective device into the marketplace. Because of this, many people have suffered losses like medical expense, physical pain, and permanent damage. The lawsuit is an attempt to compensate the patience for these loses.
Stryker is not alone.
Stryker is not the only hip implant maker facing lawsuits. Johnson & Johnson, Biomet and a several other hip replacement makers are facing lawsuits. The litigation is alleging that the metal-on-metal hip replacements are defective, prone to failure and can cause metal poisoning.
