Rockville Centre, NY - August 19th, 2014 - A Case Management Order filed on August 4 in the New Jersey Multicounty Litigation (MCL) case involving two models of hip implant manufactured and sold by Stryker (In re: Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Stem and the ABG II Modular Hip Stem Litigation; MCL-296, Bergen County Superior Court, New Jersey) notes that three included lawsuits have completed mediation, and of those three, two have been resolved. That brings the number of cases mediated up to 21 and the number of mediated cases settled to 19. The Rottenstein Law Group provides comprehensive information about Stryker hip lawsuits, side effects, and settlements at www.strykerhipreplacementlawsuit.net.

Hip implant recipients have been filing lawsuits alleging that Stryker’s metal-on-metal hip implant products, the Rejuvenate and the ABG II (both recalled in July 2012), cause serious side effects such as metal poisoning and device failure, according to court documents (In re: Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation; MDL-2441, U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota). The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued a warning about metal-on-metal hip implants that supports claimants’ allegations.

On Dec. 16, 2013, Stryker agreed to settle four hip lawsuits in state court in New Jersey for undisclosed sums, according to documents filed in the MCL. This followed news that Stryker had set aside between $700 million and $1.1 billion for litigation expenses, according to an Oct. 23, 2013 Wall Street Journal article. There are nearly 500 Stryker lawsuits pending in the federal consolidation of cases in U.S. District Court in Minnesota and more than 500 in the New Jersey consolidation.
