Defective Hip Replacements: Stryker and Biomet Suits Continue

Clark, Perdue & List continues to investigate claims for defective hip replacements involving Stryker Rejuvenate and Biomet Magnum hip implants. It is estimated that some 20,000 Stryker hip implants have been recalled and the implant devices are failing every day. Thousands of new Stryker claimants are expected to require legal representation for their injury claims.

On November 20, 2013, it was announced that DePuy ASR hip implant cases in which revision surgery had occurred have settled for $2.475 billion. Thousands of non-revision DePuy ASR cases are still pending. According to industry reports, over 40% of all DePuy ASR hip implants have failed prematurely resulting in revision surgery. In addition, 5000 claims are pending against DePuy (Johnson & Johnson) regarding failed Pinnacle hips. The number of claims continues to grow.

Key experts believe that all metal on metal (MoM) hip implants present an inherent and unreasonably unsafe risk to hip implant patients. The experts believe the devices were not property tested and offer no real benefit to the patient when compared to other hip implants such as metal-on-poly hips.

In all three litigations, it has become apparent that the defendant corporations are unwilling to adequately compensate individuals injured by these defective hip replacements unless revision surgery has taken place.
