Lawsuit: Stryker Hip Complications Resulted In Lost Earnings and Mental Anguish For Plaintiff
A woman and her husband have filed a lawsuit against the companies that designed, manufactured and advertised the Stryker hip implant device, claiming that the device was defective and caused the woman serious injuries as a result. The couple’s lawsuit alleges that the woman’s Stryker Rejuvenate implant deteriorated and generated metal debris, which then spread to tissue near the joint. The woman suffered various damages as a result, including reduced mobility, emotional suffering and financial losses, according to The Louisiana Record.
After the woman’s doctor detected high levels of metal in her blood, she was reportedly forced to undergo a revision procedure to remove and replace the defective hip implant device. She is now seeking damages for her associated medical and rehabilitation expenses. She additionally is pursuing compensation for lost earnings, reduced earning capacity, pain and suffering, mental anguish and disfigurement, the website reported.
