Will Stryker Metal Hip Implant Cases Get an MDL?
By John Curran
DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant failure lawsuit attorneys have the advantage of multi-district litigation (MDL). They can pool resources in terms of calling company executives for testimony, and test cases can determine future claims and the best tactics. Stryker metal hip implant failure lawsuit attorneys are hoping to do something similar in a New Jersey court.
The Stryker Rejuvenate and similar metal on metal hip implant devices are the subject of multiple claims by residents of several states. Stryker metal hip implant failure lawsuit attorneys are trying to get the cases tried as multi-county cases in New Jersey, close to Stryker headquarters and where an experienced judge hears cases. It could help patients who suffered from metal on metal hip implant failures.
One key advantage of multi-district or multi-county litigation is that resources are pooled, but Stryker metal hip implant failure victims can pursue their own settlements or awards. That makes it unlike class action claims, where each plaintiff gets a payment proportionate to the total settlement or jury award. While Top Class Actions has reported the multi-county litigation, some are hopeful that as the number of claims grows, it will turn into federal litigation with more experienced judges and court systems equipped to handle the evidence.
This is important as more and more Stryker hip implant recall lawsuit lawyers file cases on behalf of their clients. In fact, an Alabama man alleges that his Stryker Rejuvenate metal hip implant failed less than a year after his surgery. Like other metal on metal hip implant failures, the design of the device is allegedly leading to corrosion or worse.
The Stryker Rejuvenate hip implant was finally recalled in July, but patients before then still face risks such as pelvic fracture and metallosis, which can lead to cardiovascular and circulatory problems. Patients who received other metal hip implant failures are also at risk.
