- Stryker Corp to Pay More Than $1.4B To Settle Claims
Stryker Corporation, the makers of Rejuvenate and ABG II brand artificial hip implants, have agreed to resolve over 4,000 claims against the company for more than a billion dollars.
The hip implants were recalled in 2012 after Stryker sent recall notices to physicians and hospitals around the country. The notices advised doctors that the implants could corrode or wear away, leading to pain, swelling, or blood poisoning. The implants often had to be removed and replaced with non-defective parts.
The Stryker lawsuits were consolidated in New Jersey and Minnesota courts. Rather than go to trial, the company agreed to set aside a fund to settle all of the claims which arose before November 3, 2014.
Patients who had the Stryker implants surgically removed and underwent revision surgery before the cutoff date will receive at least $300,000 in compensation. If the patients required multiple surgeries to fix the implants, or had additional medical complications, they may be entitled to more compensation. Patients who had implants placed in both hips are eligible for double the settlement amount.
Across the U.S., approximately 20,000 people were given either the Rejuvenate or ABG II hip implants. Patients who need revision surgery after the November 3, 2014 cut-off date are not eligible for this settlement, but will still be able to pursue lawsuits against Stryker Corp. individually.

If you or your loved one had a hip replacement which failed, needed to be replaced, or caused medical complications like blood poisoning, you may be eligible for compensation.

Thank you for your message, we will get back to you soon.
I just wanted to thank Phillips law Group and Vanessa Rodriguez for all the help that she did for my daughter’s case. She was involved in her first accident and she needed the help to deal with these adjusters. Thank you again.
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
Working at Phillips Law Group has been great the 1st few years in I noticed how well organized and run this Firm was from Intake to Settlement the Client has the expertise of a staff member uniquely qualified for the particular stage of each Clients claim and all other Law firms try to emulate what we do here but none quite get it right because they lack one major component “Compassion”. We are a FAMILY not just a group of people/employees. We care deeply about each other and our clients’ we are considerate, compassionate and make sure that all our Clients’ needs are met from beginning to end. That’s because we treat our clients just like we treat each other. Nothing like walking through the office and saying Hello to fellow employees who always seem to be smiling. 16yrs in and it only seems to be getting better.
I would have no hesitation at all recommending Phillips Law Group. In particular, Juan Roque has impressed me with his professionalism, his integrity and his heart for the community!
Liz Gonzales was great!!!!
A friend of mine recommended Phillips Law and I’m so grateful, because they were so wonderful, so down to earth, so professional. I felt like they were family.
Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!
Definitely recommend! Awesome
