Statute of Limitations Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Implant Lawsuit

Defective metal on metal hip replacement implant manufactured by Stryker have resulted in thousands of serious medical complications including cobalt poisoning, metallosis, and requirement for multiple revision surgeries. As a result hundreds of laws suits including class action claims have been filed by injuries parties. The legal rights of victims injured by defective hip implants have a certain time period to file claims. Failure to file a claim within the statutorily allotted time will eliminate a victims right to monetary compensation under the law. The statute of limitations varies across jurisdiction in the United States. For example California places a 2 year times limit for filing defective product defect claims, while the Minnesota places a 4 year tile limit.
