Woman Claims to Have Experienced Other Serious Complications
A woman is seeking to hold Stryker Corporation liable for harm that she allegedly suffered after receiving a faulty hip implant produced by the company. According to the The South Coast Register, the woman received her implant in 2010 and subsequently experienced numerous complications when its metal components began deteriorating. Besides suffering damage to nearby tissue and organs, the woman allegedly developed tinnitus, high blood pressure and loss of coordination. These conditions have caused the woman significant emotional distress and necessitated substantial lifestyle changes.
Stryker recalled two of its hip replacement models, the ABG II and the Rejuvenate, two years after the woman received her implant. However, Stryker has only offered her a small amount of compensation. The woman is now working to find other hip replacement patients who suffered similar complications after receiving implants from Stryker, since her case can only proceed if it includes between 25 and 50 plaintiffs, the website reported.
