Know-your-Stryker-hip-replacement-well

Stryker’s Rejuvenate and ABG II hip replacement implants have been recalled because of their faulty design which causes various problems in users. These two hip replacement implants have been found to have high failure rates. It produces tiny metal fragments due the friction between the metal ball-and-socket, resulting to higher-than-usual levels of metals in the bloodstream. Since their recall, Stryker had announced that the recall may potentially cost them $140 million to $390 million. However, the hip replacement manufacturer has increased the amount of allocation for the patients’ necessary treatment, as well as the settlement of claims for insurance payments and lawsuits. Financial analysts continue to keep to close tab on the fluctuations of Stryker’s stock price.

As the number of lawsuits mount in New Jersey against Stryker over its recalled Rejuvenate Hip Stem and ABG II Modular Hip Stem components, the New Jersey Supreme Court has ruled that all cases in the state should and will be consolidated into a “multicounty litigation” in Bergen County Superior Court before Judge Brian R. Martinotti, the Rottenstein Law Group reports after reviewing court documents (New Jersey MCL-296).

The Jan. 15 decision of New Jersey’s high court follows deliberations in Fall 2012 over how to deal with a growing number of lawsuits in several counties. According to the court order establishing the MCL,* the consolidation is necessary to speed up pretrial proceedings for current and future Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Stem and ABG II Modular Hip Stem lawsuits. MCLs, as with multidistrict litigations at the federal level, centralize actions for pretrial matters to avoid duplication of efforts and to prevent conflicting decisions about pretrial matters.
