Plaintiff Alleges She Suffered Severe Complications From The Hip Implant
A woman who suffered injuries and severe pain after receiving a Stryker Rejuvenate hip implant device in 2010 has filed a lawsuit against the device’s manufacturer, Howmedica Osteonics, doing business as Stryker Orthopaedics, Stryker Corp. and Stryker Sales Corporation. According to The Louisiana Record, the July 2015 lawsuit claims that the woman suffered various complications that can only be addressed through the replacement of the hip implant.
The woman alleges that she experienced significant pain due to the failure of the Rejuvenate hip implant device and due to the associated leakage of cobalt and chromium, a condition known as metallosis. The woman, is pursuing a trial by jury and she is also seeking various forms of compensation, including coverage of legal costs, statutory and economic damages, disgorgement of profits and restitution, the website reported.
Injured Patients May be Eligible for Compensation
Device makers have a duty to design and produce safe products, and to warn of possible risks associated with their products. Failure to fulfill that duty can result in injuries to patients, and the device maker being held liable for those injuries.
Patients who are injured by metal-on-metal hip replacements may be entitled to compensation for damages resulting from injuries. Compensation can be based on factors including:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Pain, suffering, and mental anguish from an injury
- Loss of income or ability to work due to loss of mobility
If a loved one dies after complications from a metal-on-metal hip implant, family members may be able to pursue claims for wrongful death damages, including:
- Conscious pain and suffering of a loved one prior to death

- Pain, suffering, and mental anguish resulting from the loss of a loved one
