they (on line) indicate that they will take cases involving Stryker Triathlon but that is not the case. They only take Depuy.

Do they say why they are only taking Depuy cases?

Ask Your Own Legal Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
The web site says that, but they will not take a case involving Stryker Triathlon!
Lawyer: Andrew, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

I meant when you talked to them did they tell you why they only wanted the Depuy cases?

Sir, I have spent hours and hours trying to get legal Representation. I wonder if you could tell me if they do? I am 78 yrs old and am just about exhausted! Don
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Do they do business in Arizona?
Lawyer: Andrew, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

These are Federal cases so yes. Just trying to figure out why they have focused on depuy cases.

I have found that they seem only to want to take the "ripe cherries" as other firms have grouped together and the payoffs are there. It seems as though no one firm wishes to "break a path", even thought the "computerized cutting tool used was defective" in the Stryker Triathlon installation. The surgeon that did Alice's knee did not go back into work the next day. She was told that he quit.
Lawyer: Andrew, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

Have they told why they are not taking anything but the depuy cases?

Ask Your Own Legal Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I (on the 7th of this month) send a registered, return signed receipt letter of complaint to the Stryker Co., a copy of the letter was also sent to Banner Thunderbird Medical Clinic and the Surgeon that did the operation.
Lawyer: Andrew, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

Ok that should hopefully get you some information. How long ago did your wife have her knee surgery?

Ask Your Own Legal Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
IN AN ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION ABOUT THEM NOT TAKING CASES: They just said that they are now only taking Depey cases. It does not seem that they should keep up their website!
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
She had her knee replaced on 08 -28-2015
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
May I ask who you referred me to?
Lawyer: Andrew, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

No referral. Just the general population on JustAnswer. Hopefully someone knows more about this. My apologies I don't know enough as to why they are not going after the class your wife is in.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
