Stryker Hip Replacement Class Action Lawsuit

The lawyers at The Schmidt Firm, PLLC are nationally-recognized as class action attorneys, but we are not pursuing justice for our clients through a Stryker hip replacement class action lawsuit. Instead, we are filing individual personal injury claims, which may be transferred into a centralized federal litigation.

Personal injury lawsuit damages may include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical expenses
  • Future care or rehabilitation
  • Lost income or employment
  • Permanent disability (decreased walking ability)
  • Decreased quality of life
  • Punitive damages
  • And more

What is a Class Action Lawsuit?

When most people think about large and complex medical device litigation, they think about class action lawsuits. In a class action, many individual plaintiffs with similar claims join together to file one claim. The entire class is represented by one plaintiff and usually one law firm. If compensation is awarded, it is shared among the members of the class.

Stryker Hip Replacement Lawsuits Centralized in Federal Litigation

In the United States, class actions are rarely used to resolve these claims. Instead, claims are transferred from state court into one federal court and resolved in a Multi-District Litigation (MDL).

In June 2013, Stryker hip replacement lawsuits were centralized in an MDL located in the U.S. District Court for Minnesota under Judge Donovan W. Frank:

What’s the Difference Between a Class Action and an MDL?

The MDL process is very similar to a class action lawsuit, but there are some important differences, including:

  • Individual plaintiffs keep their own lawyer, instead of having one lawyer represent the entire group.
  • Individual lawsuits stay independent, instead of being consolidated into one claim.
  • Unlike members of a class action, individual plaintiffs who are awarded compensation do not need to share their award with other members of the litigation.
  • Each plaintiff’s lawyer fights for the maximum amount of damages their client deserves.
