Stryker Reaches Settlement in Four Rejuvenate Metal-on-Metal Hip Implant Cases

After a mediation, Stryker, the manufacturer of the defective and recalled Rejuvenate hip implants, has agreed to settle four claims currently pending in New Jersey Superior Court. After announcing a recall of the Rejuvenate hips in July, 2012, Stryker has been sued in thousands of lawsuits brought by patients who suffered serious and sometimes lifelong injuries as a result of having the defective hip system implanted in them. In addition to these four cases that have reportedly settled for undisclosed terms, three additional cases are scheduled to be mediated in January, 2014. It remains unclear whether these four settlements will have an impact on the thousands of product liability claims that exist against Stryker throughout the country.

SUGARMAN has formed a team led by partners Stephen Sugarman and Benjamin Zimmermann to represent clients who have been injured as a result of defective Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implants.
