Stryker and Plaintiffs' Counsel Announce A Global Settlement for Rejuvenate and AGB II Hip Cases

On November 3, 2014 the parties announced a proposed global settlement of all U.S. claims in Federal Court in Minnesota. Under the terms of the settlement, any Plaintiff that underwent a qualifying revision surgery will receive a base payment award of $300,000. This base payment award is the largest ever in failed hip litigation. Unlike past implant settlements there are few reductions to the base award. Liberal enhancements are available to those who suffered complications related to the device failure. Additionally, unlike most failed hip settlements, qualified victims are entitled to significant future compensation over the next two years, even if they settle their case now and execute a release.

More details and the settlement agreement are available at www.strykermodularhipsettlement.com. Hare Wynn attorney Don McKenna is on the Federal Stryker Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee and is handling Stryker Rejuvenate and AGB II cases for the firm. Don can be reached at 205-328-5330 or Don@hwnn.com.
