Deadline Looms for Stryker Rejuvenate and ABGII Recall Victims


On June 29, 2012, Stryker announced the recall of more than 20,000 Rejuvenate and ABG II hips implanted in patients throughout the United States. These hips are alleged to have a very high failure rate. However, to date, only a small fraction of those with recalled hips filed lawsuits.  Attorneys at Kershaw, Cook & Talley are concerned individuals with affected hips may lose their opportunity to recover damages if they fail to file a claim before June 29, 2014.

In most states, the statute of limitations, or time in which you can file a lawsuit, is approximately two years.  Stryker could possibly argue this statute of limitations began to run on June 29, 2012; the date it first announced a recall of its Rejuvenate and ABGII hips.  Therefore, many victims will need to file their lawsuits before June 29, 2014.

Kershaw, Cook & Talley partner, Stuart Talley, reports,  “Over the past few days, many people are calling in.  People are very concerned about the statute of limitations and want us to file their cases prior to the June 29 deadline.”

According to Mr. Talley, the date the statute of limitations begins to run is not always set in stone. Stryker may argue it ran on the date it announced the recall even if the plaintiff was unaware of the recall.  Furthermore, Stryker might claim the deadline begins to run whether or not an individual underwent revision surgery or experiences any issues with their hip.

Specifically, Mr. Talley notes,  “People are unaware that if your hip is not hurting, or your doctor has not recommended surgery, the statute of limitations could arguably be running on your case.  It may be too late to bring a claim if you wait until your doctor says you need surgery. In order have protection down the road, it is critical to contact an attorney immediately.”

The attorneys Kershaw, Cook & Talley set up a statute of limitations information page which provides extensive information to victims.  On this page, Stuart Talley provides detailed information via video concerning the statute of limitations and how Stryker Rejuvenate recipients should proceed to protect their interests.  This website is just one of many Kershaw, Cook & Talley created in order to provide information for people impacted as a result of the Rejuvenate recall.  The most popular sections of the Cobalt Chromium Toxicity website include pages regarding cobalt and chromium toxicity, a medical research library, a reference page for Rejuvenate victims, and monthly updates on the Stryker rejuvenate litigation.

Stryker Hip Recall Lawyer: Statue of Limitations


Hi, 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 am providing information about the statute of limitations on some cases.

The statute of limitations is a very important issue concerning the litigation.  The Stryker Rejuvenate and Stryker ABG II hips were recalled in July 2012. Stryker can potentially argue the statute of limitations for their recalled hips begins to run on that date. In most states, the statute of limitations is two years. The statute of limitations could run on your case in July 2014; even if you haven’t undergone revision surgery or experienced any symptoms.

If you have a Stryker Rejuvenate or Stryker ABG II, get in touch with an attorney immediately to ensure your case gets on file or have an agreement with Stryker stopping the statute of limitations from running. We are currently discussing a tolling agreement with Stryker. A tolling agreement is an agreement with the defendant stating you don’t need to file a lawsuit and the statute of limitations will stop the day you enter the agreement.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call us, toll free, at 888-635-3970 or visit our website at www.defectivehipsettlementcenter.com  and fill out the contact form for a free evaluation.
