The Stryker Hip implant company’s latest recall took place on July 6, 2012 and involves the Rejuvenate and ABGII modular-neck stem devices which are parts used in all metal hip replacements. A new series of lawsuits is expected with this latest recall. In lawsuits like these, a patient’s medical history must be considered as well as the severity of the injury, and the link between the injury and the product that has been used. These factors must be considered carefully or a person may lose compensation in their lawsuit or their settlement. The amount that a person may be entitled to for their Stryker hip implant injuries may be determined by past and future medical costs, out of pocket costs, disability, as well as pain and suffering of the patient.
A jury may also decide to award punitive damages in some cases. These damages are intended to punish specific conduct on the part of the company who made the product. Punitive damages are usually only awarded in cases of serious misconduct by the company or defendant in question.
