Stryker, the manufacturer of Rejuvenate and ABG II metal hip devices, has settled class actions pending in the Superior Court of New Jersey and U.S. District Court of Minnesota. In July, 2012, the metal hip devices were pulled from the market as a result of metal corrosion and other substantial defects requiring revision surgeries. An estimated 20,000 people were implanted with Rejuvenate and ABG II metal hip devices. Pursuant to the terms of the settlement, only those victims who underwent a revision surgery to remove the device BEFORE November 3, 2014 qualify for compensation. Knox Boteler of Boteler, Finley & Wolfe has already helped several people review their potiential hip replacement claims and he can file the necessary claim forms for victims. If you have any questions related to the settlement agreement or whether you qualify for a claim, please contact Knox Boteler at firstname.lastname@example.org and put “hip replacement” in the subject line.
