What are the Statute of Limitations for the Stryker Hip Recall?
Hi, I’m Stuart Talley with Kershaw|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.
