Does a Doctor Need to be Named in My Lawsuit?
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 answering a frequently asked question concerning whether or not you need to sue your doctor. The answer is no. Your doctor does not need to be named in the lawsuit. We highly recommend against naming your doctor in any of these cases; we have not named a doctor in any of our hundred cases.
The primary reason is that the doctor is not at fault. The Stryker Rejuvenate and Stryker ABG II were provided to the doctor under the false pretense that the hips were not defective. Both the doctors and patients are innocent victims. Another reason is the doctor is often a very important witness in these cases. You want the doctor to provide positive testimony and be on your side. You would only want to name the doctor in rare circumstances. The goal is to hold Stryker responsible since they are at fault.
