Not All Stryker Recall Lawsuits Are Filed by Patients

Not All Stryker Recall Lawsuits Are Filed by Patients October 27, 2015. By Gordon Gibb.
Minneapolis, MN: Not every Stryker recall lawsuit is filed by a recipient, and not every Stryker injury is a physical injury suffered by a patient.

Amidst Stryker Lawsuits, Calls to End FDA Fast-Track Loophole

Amidst Stryker Lawsuits, Calls to End FDA Fast-Track Loophole September 27, 2015. By Gordon Gibb.
Washington, DC When one considers that a full premarket approval (PMA) process for a new medical device is measured in years, the mere two months it took to get the Stryker Rejuvenate Modular Hip System approved for market seems remarkably short. This is especially true considering the relatively high failure rate and the subsequent voluntary recall of the Rejuvenate system by the manufacturer just a few short years after bringing the hip replacement system to market.

Stryker Orthopaedics  Rejuvenate Modular Hip System Recall Compensation on the Way July 5, 2015. By Gordon Gibb.
Kalamazoo, MI The arrival of a settlement check in the mail at the start of summer vacation season would otherwise be considered a godsend.

However, for victims of Stryker Orthopaedics metallosis, that money is likely going to pay medical bills, with a little left over as compensation for any pain and suffering experienced through dealing with the failed device.

The Stryker Compensation Deadline Has Passed—Again

The Stryker Compensation Deadline Has Passed—Again April 15, 2015. By Gordon Gibb.
Kalamazoo, MI When the Stryker Orthopedics Rejuvenate Modular Hip System Recall resulted in the $1.45 billion settlement announced November 3 of last year, plaintiffs initially had no more than about five weeks to respond. Provided the hip implants had failed and had been replaced via revision surgery prior to the announced date of the settlement, respondents had until December 14, 2014 to react. No matter that the Christmas season was in full swing, the powers that be appeared to decide that five weeks was plenty of time to spread the word and get the ball rolling.
