PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- On Friday, November 2, 2018, an important settlementwas reached between Stryker Corp., the manufacturer of the Stryker LIFT V40 hip replacement implant, and Appointed Leadership Counsel on behalf of some Plaintiffs with lawsuits pending in both federal and state courts. The settlement was confirmed by
The initial settlement terms are confidential and will not be publicly disclosed. Settlement values are believed to vary depending on certain case specific criteria including the degree of harm and the extent of permanent injuries that were suffered. Although the settlement, as stated, will not cover all filed claims, it is a substantial step in the resolution of the earliest filed cases involving this product.
Stryker recalled over 42,000 hip implants involving LFIT V40 metal femoral head components on August 29, 2016. Stryker notified implanting surgeons that these implants have a "higher than expected" revision rate as a result of taper lock failures. The LFIT V40's flawed design results in excessive wear causing metal from the cobalt-chromium head to get into a patient's bloodstream and surrounding tissues. These implants are also subject to spontaneous dissociation caused by corrosion of the metal components. These types of failures can cause severe, debilitating pain, metal poisoning and often require surgery to have the defective device removed and replaced with a new implant.
