4 things to know now if you’re a MI resident and have a Stryker hip implant

Comments Off

Michigan Auto Law is teaming up with orthopedic surgeon and national hip experts, to offer free Stryker hip implant case reviews for our clients


Unfortunately, it’s common for people to suffer serious hip and pelvis injuries in high-impact automobile accidents.   And over the years, many of our clients have had to undergo hip implants after being injured in car accidents.

This means every individual who received one of the thousands of Rejuvenate and ABG II hip devices prior to the July 2012 recall are at risk of significant medical complications and further injury. It also means you may have a legal claim against Stryker.

Similar issues may arise for DePuy, Biomet and other manufacturers of metal-on-metal hip implants.

Now, our attorneys are notifying these former clients of the risk of serious medical complications and additional surgeries if they’ve received a Stryker hip implant. The company has already committed to pay more than $2 billion to settle claims from patients injured by its defective and terribly dangerous Stryker Rejuvenate/ABG II Hip System devices.

For our clients, as well as other hip injury victims who live in Michigan and who may have potential lawsuits against Stryker, our attorneys have partnered with a top national expert and an orthopedic surgeon who’s on-call to assist with these cases.

Feel free to call us at Michigan Auto Law for a free review of your potential Stryker legal claims. We are here to answer any questions, at absolutely no charge and can be reached at (800) 777-0028.

Our lawyers and legal professionals are committed to do everything we can to help you, and ensure your claims are resolved in the most satisfactory and expeditious manner possible.

Below our attorneys have provided a list of the four imperative things you need to know now about your Stryker hip implant.

If you have a hip implant, you may be wondering about the make and manufacturer, and what to do now.

What you need to know now

  1. Most, if not all, of the Stryker Rejuvenate/ABG II Hip System implants will reportedly fail at an alarmingly quick rate.
  2. The implant also generates corrosion, metal poisoning and other adverse reactions that have been proven to kill the tissue, muscle and bone in and around the hip. This occurs due to the nature of metal-on-metal hip devices, in which the metal particles rub off of the implant and enter the surrounding tissue and bone.
  3. If you have a hip implant and you’re having pain or difficulty, you should consult your doctor to determine which implant you did receive.
  4. It’s also a good idea to speak with a knowledgeable attorney, who can answer your questions, and help you to protect your legal claims and maximize the value of your Stryker case.

Please check out our Michigan Auto Law blog post for more information on the potential side effects and symptoms of a Stryker hip implant.

For our past clients and others in Michigan who received hip implants as a result of motor vehicle accidents, our attorneys can also assist with questions about the Michigan No Fault law and whether your insurer will be responsible for the removal surgery and medical care and treatment.
