!STRYKER HIP SETTLEMENT ALERT! If you or a loved one was implanted with a Stryker Rejuvenate or Stryker ABGII metal hip implant you MUST READ THIS:

Stryker Hip Implant Recipients take note: Stryker recently agreed to a Stryker Master Settlement Agreement which proscribes the following:

  • Patients who were forced to undergo a Stryker hip revision surgery due to issues associated with the Stryker Rejuvenate and ABGII hip recall in July, 2012, are entitled to participate in the settlement;
  • The settlement offers a base award of $300,000, subject to certain enhancements and deductions based on the patient’s individual circumstances;
  • At least 95% of the plaintiffs must agree to participate in the Stryker Master Settlement Agreement or Stryker has the option of walking away from the agreement;
  • Eligible patients must have undergone a Qualified Revision surgery which included removal of the femoral stem and neck of the Rejuvenate more than 180 days after initial implantation but prior to November 3, 2014. The revision surgery must have been a result of elevated cobalt levels, an abnormal diagnostic scan or findings of tissue damage. Further eligibility criteria are detailed in the MSA;
  • Certain reductions in the base award are based on age at the time of implant, whether the Rejuvenate or ABGII replaced a pre-existing total hip replacement, and if the patient passes away for unrelated causes prior to the enrollment date of January 16, 2015;
  • Patients who were advised to have the Stryker implant removed, but were medically unable to do so are entitled to a one-time payment of $75,000;
  • Some patients will be eligible for lost wages enhancements and future enhancements to the base award;
  • There are certain caps in place regarding enhancement payments;
  • The Broadspire program is still in place and has some bearing on the Stryker Master Settlement Agreement;
  • Unrevised patients may have some options and should discuss those options with a skilled Stryker hip attorney;
  • Spouses who have current claims against Stryker will be eligible for a one-time payment of $1,500 in return for a release, and
  • Assuming the participation rate requirement of 95% is met, base payment awards are expected to begin by the end of June, 2015, while enhancement payments are expected to begin in the last quarter of 2015 and into the first quarter of 2016.
