Stryker LFIT V40 Hip Replacement Lawsuits May Be Centralized In Single Federal Court,
Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports PR NewswireJanuary 18, 2017NEW YORK, Jan. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ —
Plaintiffs pursuing Stryker hip replacement lawsuits for injuries allegedly related to certain LFIT Anatomic CoCr V40 Femoral Heads are seeking to have all such federal claims centralized in a single U.S. District Court for the purposes of coordinated pretrial proceedings.
According to a Petition filed with the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation on January 13th, at least six Stryker hip lawsuits involving LFIT V40 components are pending in federal courts around the U.S.
However, plaintiffs contend that the litigation has the potential to include thousands of similar claims, pointing out that the devices were used in conjunction with at least six of Stryker’s modular hip replacement devices. It is estimated that more than 100,000 LFIT V40 components may have been implanted in patients.
