Stryker Metal Hip Implant Alert: Patients’ Claims for Compensation May Soon Expire

If you or a loved one has suffered from a failed Stryker metal hip implant, you may be entitled to compensation. If you had your Stryker implant replaced, it is important that you contact us immediately as your time allowed to file a lawsuit may soon expire.

On May 22, 2018, Stryker issued a new “Product Safety Notification” informing persons who had a Stryker hip implant that the company has received a “higher than expected number of complaints” documenting femoral head/hip stem dissociation for certain sizes of femoral heads manufactured by Stryker.  This notification expands the 2016 recall that affected over 42,000 L-fit V40 metal femoral head hip implants. On August 29, 2016 Stryker notified implanting surgeons that these implants have a “higher than expected” revision rate as a result of taper lock failures.  Patients who have received one of these recalled hip implants should follow up with their surgeon.

If you have suffered from any of the following problems with your Stryker hip implant, contact us today:

  • Pain
  • Dislocation
  • Leg length discrepancy
  • Decreased range of motion or loss of mobility
  • Broken femur bone
  • Metal poisoning
    Inflammation
  • Revision surgery

Protect Your Rights

If you believe you or a loved one may have a claim, contact us today. There are time limits by which you need to file a product liability lawsuit. Those limits could time bar your case if it is not filed in a timely manner. Your state of residence, when you received your hip replacement, and when you experienced injuries could all affect how much time you have to file.
