Another Lawsuit Lodged Against Stryker in Kentucky Court

A new lawsuit against Stryker has been filed in a Kentucky court by plaintiff John T. Roberts who was implanted with Stryker Trident acetabular shells and Accolade hip stems in both hips back in 2006. These two devices were recalled in 2008 and 2009, respectively.

In March 2011, Roberts was compelled to undergo revision surgery on both hips to change the Trident acetabular cups. In 2013, he had to undergo another surgery to get rid of and replace the Acolade hip stem in his left leg after it ruptured.

According to the lawsuit he filed, “the defective nature of the Stryker hip components have caused him serious physical injuries, resulting in past and ongoing medical expenses, lost wages, and a diminished earning capacity.”
