Stryker Hip Settlement Registration Deadline: 2 weeks away!


Attorneys William Kershaw and Stuart Talley of Kershaw, Cook & Talley have extensive experience litigating and settling defective hip cases. How can an attorney help with my case? 

The Stryker hip settlement encourages individuals to hire an attorney. The claims process is complex. It involves submitting all the necessary documentation required for the settlement. Individuals may miss submitting appropriate documents, miss deadlines, or make mistakes in the process. Unfortunately, this adversely affects their settlement. The claims administrator and the defendants want an orderly process. It is important having an attorney on your side.

Under the settlement, people with revised hips will receive a base award of $300,000.  There is an approximate 33% deduction from your settlement if you are not represented at the time of the settlement agreement! In most cases, attorney’s fees range from 30% to 40%. And you are likely to receive more from your settlement with the help of an attorney than working alone.

Determining how much you will receive is not an easy task. You may not get all your money if you are inexperienced reviewing medical records and dealing with settlement agreements. There is essentially no cost to you when taking into consideration the deduction for not having an attorney. Under the settlement agreement, an attorney should get you the most money possible for your situation.

Increased Risk of Complications with Stryker Accolade


The Stryker Accolade is associated with an elevated rate of implant migration and loosening. There are clinic factors which contribute to the increased likelihood of complications and subsequent failure of the hips: aseptic loosening of the femoral component was associated with implant instability and micro motion (excessive motion at the implant-bone interface). Hip implant complications significantly affects patient function, results in hip implant failure and a need for revision surgery.
