Should I hire a lawyer for a case involving my Stryker hip implant?
If you have suffered injuries or have required a revision surgery due to your Stryker hip implant, then you may be entitled to receive damages in your case. The damages that you can receive in a legal action may far exceed those offered by the claims process instituted by Stryker. If you have extensive medical expenses after receiving a Stryker hip revision surgery, then pursuing a medical device lawsuit with the help of a metal-on-metal hip recall attorney may be in your best interest.
In addition to looking out for your best interests in recovering compensation for your injuries, retaining an attorney can also be helpful in navigating post-settlement issues. Like many medical device recall cases, insurance companies and Medicare who pay out benefits related to medical treatment, testing or revision surgery are generally entitled to be reimbursed from a recovery under the terms of a Stryker claim or lawsuit. Having an attorney handle these issues can both expedite disbursement of funds and ensure that subrogation requirements are met.
