Stryker Hip Implants Under Fire

Stryker hip implants recall lawsuit 224x300

Stryker is one of several hip implant manufacturers facing legal action over their products.

There are many hip implants on the market, and a number of manufacturers are under increasing legal pressure because of the effects that their products can have on recipients. Stryker hip implants have been voluntarily recalled after the devices were implicated in causing a number of problems in patients.

Hip implants can cause pain, multiple surgeries to properly alight the devices called revision procedures, infections, tissue damage, and other illnesses. Over the past few years, many manufacturers have been caught up in lawsuits over the devices, and some companies are even settling claims.

Because of the vast number of manufacturers out there and the complexity of these types of cases, you should choose an experienced lawyer to handle these types of cases. In some instances, plaintiffs may not be eligible for the settlements but can still pursue their own claims against hip implant manufacturers.

Each case is different, and each patient will have their own story to tell. For many patients, they simply wanted the better quality of life offered by the implants. Instead, the implants actually caused more harm. The pain and the illness and the multiple surgeries have far outstripped any potential benefits they have received.

Your case needs competent and aggressive representation to make sure that your rights are protected. Choose a personal injury lawyer who has experience fighting for the rights of victims if you have been the victim of Stryker hip implants or other products.
