It has become apparent that there is a large number of drugs and devices class actions that have been filed against manyfacturers that have targeted women.
We can start with the Dow Corning siicone breast implant class action of years ago. Women are still suffering today. The Dow Corning Trust just recently launched a silicone breast implant explant program. The leaking silicone and bursting implants lead to toxicity related immune system diseases like lupus and fibromylagia and other immune deficiency diseases. Women to this date are still suffering from their Dow silicone Breast Implants and the Dow Corning settlement trust is stll living out payments like the new breast explant program.
Fosamax was supposed to cure osteoporosis but ended up causing femur fractures.Then we have Yaz and Yasmine birth control pills. Young women were having their lives altered by pre-mature strokes, pulmonary embolisms, deep vein thrombosis, blood clots and heart attacks. Many girls harmed were barely starting a college life.
History moves along to the metal on metal and metal componednt hip replacements like the DePuy Pinnacle and ASR Hip Replacement and the Stryker Rejuvinate and ABG II Modular Stems. These are a metal on metal hip replacement recalled for their need for revision surgery. These hip replacements failed in women more then men. The smaller frame of a women makes the device more prone to problems in the female structure.
NuvRing has been another disaster for women causing:
blood clots in women
cerebral thrombosis in women
deep vein thrombosis
heart attack in women
retinal thrombosis in women
stroke or cerebral hemorrhage
thrombophlebitis and venous thrombosis with or without embolism
toxic shock syndrome
Fosamax for osteoporosis actually causes what it is prescribed to fix , femur fractures.
Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits
The biggest and most horrific is the the various vaginal mesh devices for urinary incontinence and uterine, bladder and bowel prolapse. This mesh device is made of a Prolene plastic synthetic fiber that has been falling aprt in women. Thousands of women across the country are screaming the horrors of the vaginal mesh and lawsuits are being filed in droves. Women are in severe pain described as razor blades. The mesh has been reported by female victims to be eroding thru the vaginal wall and at times into the bladder and bowel. Women can no longer have sexual intercourse and marriages are falling apart. Women are losing their jobs and cannot work. And then we have the Mirena IUD which has been gravitating our of postion and ending up embedded in the uterus or a nearby organ.
Lives are being ruined and justice must be sought. Lawsuits are the only thing these manufacturers understand.
We continue to accept nationwide vaginal mesh and bladder sling cases, Actos lawsuits, NuvaRing lawsuits, Dialysis medication lawsuits, Pradaxa lawsuits, Hip Replacement lawsuits, SSRI birth defect lawsuits, Tylenol lawsuits, Yaz lawsuits and others.

Stryker Rejuvinate and ABG Modular II Stems Hip Replacement
Class action Stryker lawsuit lawyers are filing lawsuit for the failed Stryker hip replacement where revision surgery is needed. We suggest you see an orthpedic doctor immediately.
The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation is considering forming an MDL to handle the growing number of Stryker lawsuits. Both the Rejuvenate and the ABG II hip implants were recalled in July 2012. This was done due to reports that the implants were causing complications including loosening of the joint, corrosion, and increased risk of inflammation as well as metal toxicity. Many victims of these failed devices have had to undergo revision surgery to remove and replace them long before they reached the end of their expected 15-20 year lifespan. On March 18, 2013, Stryker filed a brief with the JPML, agreeing that coordination of lawsuits involving the recalled devices was appropriate.
Yaz class action lawyers are accepting Yaz cases for blood clots, stroke, pulmonary embolism and untimely death of young women.

Bayer also said that it, "is only settling claims in the U.S. for venous clot injuries (deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism) after a case-specific analysis of medical records on a rolling basis. Such injuries are alleged by about 3,200 of the pending unsettled claimants. Bayer will continue to consider the option of settling individual lawsuits in the U.S. on a case-by-case basis.

Stryker has recalled a number of hip replacements including: Stryker Rejuvinate, Stryker ABG II and the Trident. Lawsuits are being filed against Stryker for implant failure of all these devices
Stryker recalled its Trident artificial hip in 2007 due to device failures in recipients. Previous plaintiffs have cited symptoms consistent with other defective metal-on-metal hip implants, along with one defect that was unique to the Trident device: Many recipients claimed of hearing a loud squeaking noise coming from their hip region after receiving this particular model.
Stryker recalls on the Rejuvinate and ABG II will effect thousands and the lawsuits are coming in in mass. The FDA has taken another look and is proposing changes to regulations that allowed two Stryker Corp. recalled hip implant systems to be deemed safe. But the move does little for the tens of thousands of patients already implanted with the faulty medical devices. The DePuy Pinnacle and ASR are other failed recalled hip replacements that have injured thousands of victims. The FDA proposed changes for the 510(k) Premarket Notification Process for the approval of metal-on-metal hip implants like those manufactured by Stryker and DePuy come very late for seniors burdened with painful revision surgeries.
In July 2012, after injured patients filed more than 60 adverse event reports with the FDA, Stryker issued a voluntary recall of its ABG II and Rejuvenate hip implant systems. Post-market surveillance revealed that a metal-on-metal junction in these devices can shed metal debris, causing pain and tissue damage that may require a revision surgery. Can the FDA actually step up to the plate and protect our citizens?
The FDA’s most recent proposal aims to standardize the requirements for how the agency accepts data, regardless of the submission or application type. The new regulation will require 510(k) submissions to be scrutinized by an institutional review board (IRB), a must for PMA applications.
The proposal for better practices in approval of medical devices like hip implants would become effective 180 days after publication, and the proposal to shift from 510(k) to PMA for metal hips would become effective 90 days after publication. Lawyers for Stryker and Depuy hip replacements are filing lawsuits for failed devices.
Stryker is reaching out to victims of their Rejuvinate and ABG II Hip replacements thru Broadspire Services Inc. Beware and contact a Stryker Hip Replacement lawyer immediately. It is best to have a retained lawyer as these cases will be part of a nationwide MDL ( multi distrcit litigation ) hip replacement lawsuit just like the DePuy Pinnacle and many others. Stryker says "“Stryker will be reimbursing patients for testing, treatment, revision surgery; if necessary; and other costs relating to this voluntary recall.” But this is vague and unclear and by accepting this you may lose your oppoertunity for a settlement once these are negotiated by Stryker lawyers. Stryker is not on your side.
Stryker Broadspire Contacts For Medical Expenses
You may have recently received a Stryker letter from a doctor informing you that Broadspire Services, Inc. had been retained to handle claims for patient expenses related to the Stryker Rejuvenate recall. According to information on Stryker’s website, “Stryker will be reimbursing patients for testing, treatment, revision surgery, if necessary, and other costs relating to this voluntary recall.” Stryker has also directed doctors to inform their patients that Broadspire would be working directly with patients on their claims, and to contact Stryker for more information. You should keep in mind that any information you disclose during the Stryker Broadspire claims process, or to a Broadspire representative, could dramatically effect your Stryker hip recall lawsuit settlement. You should speak to a Stryker lawyer before you contact Broadspire, and especially before you agree to or sign anything. This is extremely important.
Many seniors do not understand the process and are easily coerced. They are vulnerable and concerned about medical care. You should speak to an experienced Stryker Hip Replacement lawyer.
