Early mediation in Stryker Rejuvenate hip implant lawsuits has resulted in several settlement agreements being reached to resolve complaints brought by patients who experienced problems with the recalled medical devices. According to an order issued last week in the Superior Court of New Jersey for Bergen County, where close to 800 Stryker hip implant lawsuits are currently pending, the parties have resolved eight out of the first nine cases to reach the court-ordered mediation phase. If you received a defective metal-on-metal hip implant and you have since required revision surgery to remove or replace the device, contact a defective hip implant attorney today for legal help. You may have grounds to file a hip implant lawsuit against the manufacturing company, in order to pursue financial compensation for your injuries and medical expenses.
Estimates show that metal-on-metal hip implants like the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II designs have been used in roughly one-third of the 250,000 hip replacements performed in the United States every year. In addition to hip implant lawsuits pending in New Jersey state court, there are more than 576 additional complaints pending in the federal court system, where cases brought on behalf of patients throughout the country have been centralized for pretrial proceedings as part of a multidistrict litigation (MDL).
