While no settlements have been announced as of mid-2023, the increasing number of lawsuits suggests that the manufacturers could face significant financial penalties. Given the severity of the complications reported and the alleged concealment of these risks by the manufacturers, it is plausible that any eventual settlement or judgment could result in substantial compensation for the victims.

  1. As of 2023, the Cartiva Implant Lawsuits have started to gain significant traction, with a growing number of affected patients and their families seeking legal recourse. The central allegations of these lawsuits are that Cartiva Inc., Wright Medical Group, and Stryker, the manufacturers and distributors of the Cartiva Implant, were aware of the high failure rate and potential complications of the device, but withheld this critical information to avoid a product recall and protect their profits.

    These lawsuits claim that the manufacturers failed in their duty to ensure the safety and effectiveness of their product, leading to widespread patient suffering. The victims are now seeking justice and compensation for their pain, suffering, medical expenses, and loss of income resulting from additional surgeries and recovery periods.

    In addition to individual lawsuits, there is a growing momentum towards forming a class-action lawsuit. A class-action lawsuit allows a group of people who have suffered similar harm to join together to sue the responsible party. This approach can be particularly effective when the damages for each individual may not be substantial enough to justify the costs of individual lawsuits.
