Just a reminder, there is a deadline for registration of claims in the Stryker hip proposed settlement. The deadline is December 14, 2014. By registering, you are not stating that you will participate in the settlement program. That decision does not have to be made at this time. You have until March 2, 2015 to elect to participate, but you must register to be eligible for participation. The settlement proposal includes a base award of $300,000 for a person who has had an implanted Stryker ABG II or Rejuvenate device and whose has had to have revision surgery. If you have had two implants and revision of each implant, you could be eligible for up to 600,000 in base awards. The proposed settlement allows for certain deductions for age. It allows for enhancements in certain cases. The entire settlement proposal has many details that will require looking at each case individually to determine whether it qualifies and what enhancements may be available to a participating claimant. Please give us a call if you would like us to review your possible Stryker claims. If not us, please contact an attorney with experience in this litigation so that you will meet all applicable deadlines.

Proposed Stryker Hip Settlement

Stryker has agreed to pay more than $1 billion to attempt to settle cases involving its Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implant devices. These devices were voluntarily recalled in July of 2012. McMath Woods P.A. has been handling these types of recalled hip cases and is currently reviewing the detailed settlement agreement that was finalized on Nov. 3, 2014. For qualifying plaintiffs, it appears from our initial review that proposed settlement amounts are 300,000 for one revised hip and 600,000 for double hip revisions. There is the possibility for enhancements—meaning a plaintiff’s claim could be bumped up from the 300,000 level or 600,000 level depending on complications and damage. After June 15, 2015, Stryker does have the ability to walk away if not enough Plaintiff’s participate.

McMath Woods continues to evaluate these cases and are happy to to provide a free initial consultation. Please be mindful that the settlement program has deadlines. Do not hesitate to contact an attorney if you had one these devices implanted and had to have revision surgery.
