The $1.5B settlement reached in the Stryker Rejuvenate/ABGII Hip Implant litigation in November, 2014, has been finalized as 95% of the MDL litigants have agreed to participate in the settlement. Litigants are receiving a base payment with enhanced awards when complications arose during their medical care, such as muscle destruction, osteotomy, or subsequent revision.
Richard E. Vollertsen, of the Alaska Personal Injury Law Group, served as local counsel in Alaska for the New York law firm, Weitz Luxemberg. Ellen Relkin, of Weitz Luxemberg was lead counsel in the litigation.
Those patients who have had their Stryker hip implants removed after November 2014, may be able to join the litigation, and should contact the Alaska Personal Injury Law Group for a case evaluation.
