When the Utah Stryker Hip Statute of Limitations Can Affect Your Future Following the Stryker hip recall in July, 2012, many recipients of a recalled Stryker Rejuvenate or ABGII are naturally extremely concerned about their health and their future. You may be one of the thousands of people who believed they were receiving a safe hip implant only to find there were many risks involved with the device. Those patients who have suffered serious harm from one of these devices may want to join the more than 1,700 others who have filed a Stryker hip lawsuit. One very important consideration concerns the statutes of limitations. In each state there is a certain length of time consumers have to file suit against the manufacturer of a defective or dangerous product or device. The state of Utah—like many other states—allows two years from the date the injury occurs to bring a civil cause of action.

Determining just when your injury occurred after receiving a Stryker Rejuvenate or ABGII can be difficult. Many people, unaware of the risks associated with the Rejuvenate and ABGII, attributed certain adverse health symptoms to advancing age or other issues, not realizing the symptoms were tied to a defective device. The only way to know for certain when the statutes will run in your specific case is to contact a highly knowledgeable Utah Stryker hip lawyers and discuss the details of your potential Utah Stryker hip lawsuit with him or her. You may feel frustrated and angry that your health has been damaged by the Stryker hip recall, or perhaps you have not yet experienced adverse health symptoms but may in the future. The failure rate is extremely high for the Stryker ABGII and Rejuvenate, therefore even those with no current overt symptoms may well experience problems in the future. Don’t give up your right to file a Utah Stryker hip lawsuit because you have missed the Utah Stryker hip statute of limitations.

Problems Consumers Have Experienced After Implantation of a Recalled Stryker Hip Device
Stryker sent out an Urgent Field Safety Notification to surgeons and hospitals in April, 2012, just months prior to the Stryker hip recall. This notification cautioned that the ABGII and Rejuvenate were showing higher-than-normal failure rates and that fretting and corrosion at the neck junction was being seen. When fretting and corrosion occurs during periods of activity when the metal parts of the device rub against one another, tiny metal ions shear away, lodging in hip tissues or traveling to the bloodstream. Cobalt and chromium ions in the hip tissues can cause the tissue and bone to deteriorate and even die. Pain, inflammation and total hip failure can occur. The cobalt and chromium ions which reach the bloodstream can cause a number of very serious health symptoms and disorders including the following:

  • Kidney disorders
  • Thyroid problems
  • Headaches
  • Vertigo
  • Memory loss
  • Stroke and heart attack
  • Neurological disorders
  • The development of certain types of cancers
  • Disruption of DNA
  • Reproductive disorders
  • Anxiety, irritability, depression
  • Gastrointestinal disorders
  • The diminishment of vision and hearing
  • Skin rashes

Don’t wait until the Utah Stryker hip statute of limitations has passed you by, leaving you injured with no way to make the manufacturer of your defective device pay for your medical expenses and pain and suffering.
