The Stryker hip lawyers at Bernstein Liebhard LLP are evaluating potential lawsuits on behalf of individuals impacted by Stryker’s recent recall of Rejuvenate and ABG II modular hip stems.

Our Stryker Rejuvenate lawyers believe victims of this hip recall may be entitled to significant compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. Our Firm is offering free case reviews to anyone with a Rejuvenate or ABG II component included in this recall. For answers to any questions you may have about your legal rights, please contact a Stryker hip attorney at Bernstein Liebhard LLP today, by calling .
Before the Stryker hip recall was announced, some 20,000 Rejuvenate and ABG II modular hip stems were sold worldwide. Potentially thousands of people received one of these defective hips. Stryker recently revealed that it has received reports that even Stryker hip recipients with no or mild symptoms have tested positive for metal ions in their blood, or have evidence of a local tissue reaction. If you have one of these hip implants, you should see your doctor to discuss a blood test for your Stryker hip. Then you should contact a Stryker Rejuvenate lawyer to ensure your legal rights are protected.
If you were affected by the Stryker Rejuvenate recall, you could be facing the specter of a painful revision procedure to remove and replace the defective hip. You may have already racked up hefty medical bills or lost wages, and could face more in the future. Our Stryker hip lawyers understand what you’re going through. Our Firm has successfully represented hundreds of people injured by defective drugs and medical devices. Our attorneys will make sure you are treated fairly and receive all of the compensation you deserve.
You may have recently received a Stryker letter from a doctor informing you that Stryker has retained third-party claims administrator, Broadspire Services, Inc., to handle patients’ claims stemming from the Rejuvenate recall. According to Stryker, it will be “reimbursing patients for testing, treatment, revision surgery, if necessary, and other costs relating to this voluntary recall” via the Broadspire Stryker claims program.
The attorneys at Bernstein Liebhard LLP have dealt with a similar claims process relating to the August 2010 DePuy ASR hip recall, and have gained valuable insight regarding Broadspire Services Stryker claims. You may want to consider speaking with one of our Stryker lawyers before having any contact with Broadspire, as any information you disclose could be used in your Stryker Rejuvenate hip lawsuit.
