Illinois Hit Hard with Recalled Stryker Hips
Over 200 individuals living in North Central Illinois, particularly in Marshall County, La Salle, Spring Valley, Peru and surrounding areas have received the recalled Stryker Rejuvenate Modular and ABG II modular-neck stem devices.
These devices are defective and may necessitate painful and expensive revision surgeries. It is important to see your doctor and to consult an attorney to protect your legal rights.
It is possible that your doctor may have sent you a letter notifying you of the recall. If this is the case you should follow your doctor’s suggestions. You may be entitled to compensation for the injures that you have sustained due to corrosion and fretting. This corrosion and fretting leads to a phenomenon known as metalosis that was previously discussed on this blog.
In fact, recently plaintiffs in New Jersey have filed enough lawsuits that the state has consolidated all of the cases in front of one judge. This process will likely continue in other states including Illinois.
