  • What is the compensation in a morcellator cancer lawsuit?

  • Can I still get a Stryker hip settlement?

    Yes. Stryker settlements are still being paid out to those who were harmed by defective hip devices. Recently, Stryker was ordered to pay out $1.4 billion or more in total compensation. These settlements call for a base award of $300,000 for each hip device that failed.

  • What are the defective hip settlement amounts?

    Defective hip settlement amounts can vary due to a wide variety of factors. Estimating settlement amounts is difficult because each claim contains a unique collection of different circumstances. Our experienced and skilled attorneys can listen to your case and determine potential settlement amounts based on your situation.

    In the recent Stryker defective hip settlement litigation, the total payout came to nearly $1.4 billion dollars. Styrker had to make settlement payments to thousands of individuals who were harmed by the Rejuvenate and ABG II hip implant devices. In the case against Stryker, settlements called for base awards of $300,000 for each failed hip device. Additionally, the company was ordered to pay extra compensation, called "enhanced compensation" for suffering during surgical removal and replacement. This is just an example of what future defective hip litigation could result in.

  • Can I sue if AndroGel caused a heart attack?

    The testosterone supplement AndroGel has been known to cause serious health conditions in some men. If you have suffered a heart attack as a result of taking this drug, you may be entitled to compensation against the drug company. Several medical studies have suggested that many testosterone supplements, such as AndroGel, can incrase the risk of serious medical conditions such as heart attack, stroke, blood clot formation, and deep vein thrombosis.

    Lawsuits against AndroGel allege that the manufacturer did not disclose many of the serious health risks to the public. Therefore, the drug was initially considered by many to be a safe and effective way to increase muscle strength, sex drive, and slow the effects of aging. It is strongly believed that the testosterone replacement therapy industry did not properly test their products and may have been aware of the adverse effects of the medications prior to releasing them to the public. Thousands of lawsuits have been filed against AndroGel. If you have expereienced any of the life-threatening complications associated with testosterone drugs, you may be able to join a class action lawsuit or file your own.
