Stryker Hip Replacement Cases Find Way to Court

Problematic Hip Replacement Cases Find Way to Court

Osborne & Associates Law Firm, P.A. takes its first Stryker hip replacement failure case to trial

Boca Raton, FL.—A surge of newly filed lawsuits across the country are drawing attention to legal issues involved specifically around Stryker hip replacements. Osborne & Associates Law Firm, P.A., a leading mass tort law firm in Boca Raton, Florida sends its first Stryker hip case to trial this December.

Stryker voluntarily recalled its Rejuvenate, ABG II and Accolade modular-neck hip stems in 2012 after the implants showed signs of corroding and fretting, according to DrugWatch. Severe, crippling pain has led patients to mandatory revision surgeries. In addition to the discomfort, the Stryker hip replacement failures have been found to cause metal poisoning and can lead to medical concerns for the heart, nervous system and thyroid.

So far, thousands of lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturer. Some of the cases filed against Stryker include:

  • Failure to properly test the device
  • Failure to market the product correctly to doctors and the public
  • Failure to warn about dangers and risks
  • Product corrosion, leaving metal toxicity in patients

Stryker has a responsibility to supply properly designed products with warnings about risks to the public. According to Stryker, the combined recall and lawsuits could cost the company as much as $1.3 billion. Injured victims may be compensated for:

  • Medical expenses involving hip replacement
  • Healthcare and caregiver costs
  • Physical or mental pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium or any other punitive damages

Quick and fair resolution to a unique case. On advice of my own attorney, I engaged Joseph Osborne of Osborne & Francis of Boca Raton, FL. Mr. Osborne had considerable experience in cases such as mine and the results showed that. Mr. Osborne and his staff were very helpful, kept me up to date, and listened to my input. The settlement was very fair as far as I am concerned.

“I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer/ firm — everything was done professionally exactly how I wanted. Due to COVID my personal attorney Mr. Garcia was still able to make things work in a timely manner and he never made me feel like he wasn’t working. Overall I’m happy with how my case turned out and I would recommend him and this law firm to anyone. 100% satisfied.”

“Attorneys Greg Francis and Ryan Fletcher at Osborne & Francis Law Firm represented me in my personal injury case.The defendant drew a line in the sand and was adamant on a settlement amount I was almost willing to accept. After the dust settled and the smoke cleared, we settled for 3 times that amount!!! When they say ‘Real Tough Lawyers,’ they mean it.”
