Waiting for Stryker Hip Settlement Payments? USClaims Can Help

Pre-Settlement Funding: Stryker Hip Settlement

 

For nearly 30 years, “Gene” (not a real person) owned and operated a moving company. As the years wore on, chronic hip pain began to take its toll, and he left much of the heavy lifting to his sons. By the time he retired, the pain was so bad that Gene could barely walk and he had trouble sleeping at night.

Determined not to spend his later years confined to a wheelchair, Gene underwent hip replacement surgery. The change was miraculous. Gene recovered nearly all his freedom of movement, with virtually no discomfort. He enjoyed long walks with his wife and even joined her for yoga classes at the local community college.

Then, slowly, the pain started to return. Gene started taking shorter walks, attributing it to simple fatigue. He stopped attending yoga classes. Then, one night, Gene was jolted from his sleep with severe pain in his hip. He made an appointment to see his orthopedic surgeon as soon as he could.

After a series of tests, his doctor delivered the bad news: Gene’s hip replacement appeared to be defective. Some of the metal was corroding away and infecting the nearby tissue. He would need to decide whether to have the implant removed before things got worse.

After consulting a personal injury attorney, Gene filed a lawsuit against Stryker, the manufacturer of his hip replacement, alleging that the company had been negligent in testing its product and informing patients and doctors of its risks. And he wasn’t the only one. Other people who had received certain models of Stryker hip implants filed lawsuits, also alleging that their implants were defective. In 2012, the FDA announced that Stryker had begun recalling two models of hip implants, the Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck stems.

Facing additional surgery, not to mention the physical and emotional trauma of his worsening condition, Gene soon found his money stretched thin. While his lawyer said he had a good chance of receiving Stryker hip settlement payments, Gene needed money now. That was when his lawyer told him to call USClaims.
