The newly released information related to the defective nature of the LFIT V40 may give rise to a large number of new hip implant lawsuits to accompany those which have already been filed over the past few years, many having been consolidated into Multidistrict Litigations (MDL) as well as State Court Litigation's. A number of lawsuits which include allegations related to the LFIT V40 component have already been filed in the New Jersey Stryker Hip State Court Consolidation.
In July of 2016 Annah Marie Gidora ( See Giodia vs Howmedica) filed a complaint in the Southern District of New York related to the LFIT V40 Femoral Head implanted in conjunction with a Stryker Accolade . Gidora alleges alleges that the device is prone to fail before its expected life. As a result of the device failure Giordia alleges that she suffered a debilitating loss of mobility as well as other injuries resulting in significant pain and suffering.
