New Stryker Hip Recall Lawsuits Filed in State Courts

Published December 18th, 2012 by Sandy Liebhard

Two new Stryker Rejuvenate hip lawsuits have been filed in state courts by victims who received defective Stryker Rejuvenate hip implants and experienced hip replacement failure.

Tracy Sponer filed her lawsuit on November 7, 2012 in the U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of Arkansas. She received the Stryker Rejuvenate hip implant in September 2011 and soon began experiencing complications. Her side effects were so severe that she underwent revision surgery to have the problematic hip implant removed.

In Utah, Erma Neagle filed a lawsuit on November 9, 2012, in the U.S. District Court for Utah against Stryker Orthopaedics after undergoing multiple revision surgeries.

Neagle received the Stryker Rejuvenate hip implant two years ago. Her complications included an abnormally long recovery time, substantial pain and chronic inflammation.

She went through two corrective surgeries to finally have the defective hip implant removed. Her first surgery occurred in July 2012, where surgeons debrided the infected tissue and replaced the defective implant with a temporary alternative. In October 2012, she received a more permanent hip replacement alternative in her second revision surgery.

Both Stryker lawsuits make claims against Stryker Orthopaedics, the manufacturer of the device. Stryker hip lawsuit allegations include:

  • failure to warn
  • negligence
  • defective manufacture and design
  • breach of warranties.

Sponer and Neagle joins the many other victims of the Stryker hip recall, issued in July 2012 because of issues of fretting and corrosion associated with the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II implants. Patients filing lawsuits seek compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and more. To learn more, call .
