Metal-on-Metal Hip Implants
Yaeger Law is handling several different metal-on-metal hip implant cases. Over the last five years, the failure rate of metal-on-metal hip implants has been on the rise. Thousands of hip implant patients have suffered devastating injuries including chronic pain, metal toxicity (increased levels of Chromium and Cobalt), tissue damage, bone damage, dislocation, pseudotumor, metallosis, and revision surgery. The FDA has recalled a number of metal-on-metal hip implants while others remain on the market. Tens of thousands of lawsuits have been filed across the nation holding the manufacturers of metal-on-metal hip implants accountable.
If you or a loved one had a hip implant surgery and experience complications, you may be entitled to compensation.

In June 2012, Stryker recalled its Rejuvenate and ABGII Modular Stem System because of a high failure rates, resulting in revision surgeries to replace the defective devices. Laura Yaeger represented patients injured by the metal-on-metal hip implant in lawsuits against Stryker, which resolved in a global settlement requiring Stryker to pay nearly $2 billion to injured patients.
On May 22, 2018, Stryker expanded its prior recall of certain LFIT™ Anatomic CoCr V40™ Femoral Heads to include all LFIT™ Anatomic CoCr V40™ heads manufactured between January 1, 2002 and March 3, 2011. This Product Safety Notification warns about various potentially hazardous medical conditions associated with these recalled femoral heads, including head/stem disassociation, stem fracture, and metallosis requiring revision surgery.
