Customer Question
Hellos I received a...

Hellos I received a Stryker hip replacement in 2006 and had to have another total hip replacement due to major problems relating to it in 2008 is there anyway I can receive compensation?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Nsw

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No doctor told me what had happened to my hip after he replaced it with new one and apparently wrote a paper on it .that's all I know I mentioned it to my go but he wasn't keen on claiming compensation .

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Not sure what information they want .

While you may have an issue because of the statute of limitations, since it has been 9 years since this happened and was known and the statute of limitations is 4 years from discovery, there is a Stryker hip replacement settlement out there and you may qualify. You need to contact the settlement management company at 1-***-***-*******@******.***

They will need to review your medical records and the letter from your doctor to determine if you qualify.
