Stryker Hip Recall Statute Of Limitations

Many patients with Stryker AGB II or Rejuvante hip prostheses are concerned with the adverse effects secondary to implantation of these devices. Additionally, many are asking questions regarding the statute of limitations for filing a claim over their defective hip.

Stryker Hip Recall Statute of Limitations

I’m Stuart Talley with Kershaw, Cook & Talley. Bill Kershaw and I are the partners responsible for the Stryker Rejuvenate and Stryker ABG II litigation cases. Today, I will discuss a frequently asked question concerning the statute of limitations and how it impacts your legal rights in this case.

The main concern is when the statute of limitations runs. Does it run from the date your Stryker was implanted? Does it run from the date of the recall? Does it start when the surgeon informs you of the recalled hip? Does it begin when you are diagnosed with elevated cobalt-chromium toxicity? Many of these dates potentially indicate when the statute of limitations starts to run.

Unfortunately, there is no clear cut rule regarding the statute of limitations; the statute of limitations runs for approximately one to two years in most states.  Therefore, it is in your best interest to use the earliest date possible. This decreases the chance Stryker will argue for case dismissal or claim the case has no merit.

Contact a hip recall lawyer before you lose your right to file a claim

If you have a Stryker Rejuvenate or ABG II hip, get in touch with a product liability lawyer immediately, before you lose your right to file a claim against the manufacturer. This also ensures the statute of limitations does not run on your case.
