Stryker Hip Lawyers
Dedicated to Reaching Justice for Injured Patients Nationwide
In 2012, the Stryker corporation recalled hip models Rejuvenate and ABG II after thousands of patients reported severe failure. The metal-on-metal hips systems are prone to shredding, which can cause splinters of metal to pierce the surrounding flesh and to enter the bloodstream. As a result, patients often experienced inflammation, pain, disability and infections and were forced to undergo additional surgeries to replace the hip and repair the damage.
Searcy, Denney, Scarola, Barnhart & Shipley, P.A. recognized these problems before the FDA took action. Our Florida Stryker hip lawyers began an investigation into the defective products long before the Stryker hips were recalled. We filed the first lawsuits against the manufacturer to recover damages in Stryker Rejuvenate System and the ABG II failures and still remain on the forefront of Stryker litigation.

Founded in 1979, Searcy Denney is a well-regarded injury litigation law firm based in Florida. Our Stryker hip lawyers file claims on behalf of clients located across the country. Because of the substantial numbers of victims, the courts have consolidated proceedings into multidistrict litigation (MDL) in New Jersey — the state where the defendant is domiciled. Searcy Denney has filed more than 150 of the nearly 900 lawsuits filed in the New Jersey federal court against the Stryker company.
Our Florida Stryker hip lawyers offer injured patients and their families effective representation that includes:
