Severe Injuries from Stryker Hip Implants
People have suffered a variety of painful side effects and severe injuries after receiving defective Stryker hip implants.
Some of the injuries occur because the implants are not functioning properly while others happen because the metal implants corrode and deteriorate, causing metal ions to enter patients’ blood streams.
Common injuries include:
- Broken bones
- Metal poisoning
- Pain in the hips, legs or groin
- Rashes on the skin
- Reduced kidney function
- Cardiomyopathy, or weakening of the heart muscle
- Impaired hearing or vision
- Psychological problems such as depression or cognitive difficulties
- Walking with a limp
- Neck pain
- Noise from the implant, such as popping, clicking or squeaking
Victims of these injuries often require more surgery to correct problems with their hip implants. However, another surgery puts victims at risk for excessive bleeding and infections.
That is why victims need to contact an experienced lawyer at Lynch Law Firm, PC to find out if they are entitled to file a Stryker hip implant lawsuit to recover compensation for their suffering.
The attorneys at Lynch Law Firm, PC have fought for the rights of the injured for more than 20 years. We have a firm commitment to holding medical device manufacturers responsible for producing dangerous products.

Stryker Recalls Hip Implants
Since 2005, Stryker had received many complaints about complications from its Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck stem implants.
However, Stryker did not recall the devices until July 2012, after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) received more than 60 adverse event reports about these devices causing metal poisoning and requiring patients to get revision surgery.
The fact that Stryker did not issue a recall or take any type of corrective action for several years, despite all of the complaints about the hip implants, means that victims could be entitled to compensation through a Stryker hip implant lawsuit.
Medical device manufacturers have a legal obligation to create devices that are safe and will not cause serious or permanent injuries to patients. Manufacturers must also provide sufficient warning to doctors and patients about the risks of these devices.
When medical device manufacturers release dangerous products and do not provide adequate warning, they can be held liable for the injuries and suffering they cause.
If you suffered injuries after receiving a Stryker hip implant, contact the personal injury lawyers at Lynch Law Firm, PC to find out if you can file a Stryker hip implant lawsuit.

Why You May Need to File a Stryker Hip Implant Lawsuit
After issuing the recall, Stryker announced a reimbursement program for patients who were injured by their hip implants. The company stated that it would reimburse patients for necessary tests, medical treatment, surgery to correct problems with their implants and other costs.
However, the announcement did not say whether doctors, patients or Stryker itself would determine if testing, treatment or surgery are necessary.
Also, it is unclear from the announcement what “other costs” means. Other costs may not include all of the damages you have suffered from your defective hip implant, such as:
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Medical expenses, both now and in the future
Another problem with the reimbursement program is that you may be required to sign medical authorization forms for medical professionals to provide the treatment that you need. That could put your medical privacy at risk, and any information Stryker obtains could be used against you in any future legal claims.
That is why you need to contact an experienced legal professional before taking part in this reimbursement program.
The experienced lawyers from Lynch Law Firm, PC can protect your privacy while ensuring you receive the medical treatment that you need.
We may also be able to file a Stryker hip implant lawsuit to pursue all of the compensation you deserve for the injuries and other damages you have suffered.
