How a New Mexico Stryker Hip Lawyer Can Help You If you are a victim of the Stryker hip recall, you are likely anxious about your future and possibly even angry that you believed claims your hip device was safe, when in fact, it was not. Stryker recalled the Rejuvenate and ABGII in July, 2012, after the two devices had been on the market less than three years. The Rejuvenate gained FDA approval in 2008 and the ABGII in 2009, however the two hip devices were not actually aggressively marketed until February of 2010. Yet less than a few short months later, the FDA had received adverse event reports regarding the implants with the innovative new design. Because the two new Stryker implants used a ceramic ball rather than a metal one, Stryker claimed there would not be the same problems with metal shear as in other metal-on-metal hip implants.

There were also assertions that the devices would last much longer—even as long as 15-20 years—making them a great choice for the younger, more active patient. Yet later, in 2010, one surgeon who removed a Stryker device from his patient noted clear evidence of corrosion at the modular neck junction, and by January, 2011, another surgeon stated there was corrosion resembling black rust on his patient’s removed Rejuvenate. Another six notifications from surgeons came in during 2011, and by the end of 2011, the FDA had received 130 adverse event reports from surgeons and patients.

Another 170 reports can come in by the first few months of 2012. Failure of the two Stryker implants in other countries was also on the rise; The Australian Registry calculated a failure rate of 8.1% in the very first year following implantation of ABGII modular hip stems. Despite growing evidence that both models had serious problems, Stryker continued to sell the Rejuvenate and ABGII. If you have suffered symptoms of metallosis or metal toxicity due to the Stryker hip recall, it is important that you speak to a New Mexico Stryker hip lawyer as soon as possible. Your Stryker attorney can assess the circumstances of your Stryker hip implant and determine the best course of action, including whether you should file a New Mexico Stryker hip lawsuit.

How the New Mexico Stryker Hip Statute of Limitations May Affect You All states have statutes of limitations which govern how much time those harmed by a defective product have to file a lawsuit against the responsible party. New Mexico’s statute of limitations allows three years from the date the injury occurred in which to file a civil suit. While this may sound like you have plenty of time, it is extremely important that you contact a New Mexico Stryker hip lawyer who can determine exactly when your statutes will run. Should you miss the relatively narrow window of opportunity you have to recover damages from Stryker, you could be forever barred from doing so.

This means that there is really no way to know for sure whether you can file a New Mexico Stryker hip lawsuit without speaking to an experienced New Mexico Stryker hip lawyer. The Stryker hip recall may have left you with metallosis or metal poisoning—both extremely serious health issues which may not totally resolve even if you undergo revision surgery to have the defective hip implant removed. Don’t wait until it is too late—call a knowledgeable New Mexico Stryker hip lawyer today.
