Philadelphia Firm Seeks Compensation for Stryker Hip Implant Victims

Established lawyers take on manufacturer of faulty medical devices

Many patients who sought relief by receiving a hip replacement have suffered continued pain and new types of harm because hip implant devices manufactured by Stryker have been found to be defective. After a recall was announced in 2012 for the company’s Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implants, recipients of these faulty products were awarded more than $1 billion to address the damage they caused. Now, the accomplished Philadelphia attorneys at Cooper Schall and Levy are representing clients in a second litigation settlement relating to Stryker’s LFIT V40 femoral head, a medical component used in total hip replacement surgeries. This device has caused similar problems for hip replacement patients including pain, bone fractures and other conditions relating to debris from broken parts and the release of metal into the body. If you’ve been experiencing these symptoms after having an artificial hip implanted, we will pursue full compensation on your behalf.

Pennsylvania attorneys protect clients when Stryker hip replacements fail

Representing clients in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, our firm offers a free initial consultation to victims of faulty Stryker hip replacements and other personal injury victims. We’ll provide responsive counsel on key issues such as:

  • Signs of faulty implants — Made from cobalt and chromium, the LFIT V40 femoral head is attached to a metal stem and is designed to be inserted into the socket portion of the implant. Metal-on-metal contact has led to corrosion when the head and stem are made from different metals or alloys. This has triggered disassociation between the head and stem, excessive metal in the bloodstream, and tissue damage in addition to pain and noise emanating from the implant.
  • Liability — Following the recall of the LFIT V40 in 2016, litigation was launched on behalf of plaintiffs who were given the device between 2006 and 2012. This followed the substantial action involving problems with Stryker’s Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implants. Even if you’re not sure which type of hip replacement you received, our firm will investigate the matter thoroughly and assess what type of financial recovery you might be entitled to.
  • Damages — If you’ve suffered the effects of a defective Stryker hip replacement device, you might be able to collect reimbursement for medical costs, lost wages, physical pain, emotional stress, rehabilitation costs and permanent effects such as scarring.

At every stage of your case, our skilled attorneys will focus on securing appropriate compensation and holding Stryker accountable so that you can meet your present and future needs.
