Broadspire Services Handling Stryker Lawsuits
If you or a loved one received a Stryker Rejuvenate or ABG II modular-neck hip stem and you suffered from adverse side effects or life-threatening complications, you may be entitled to pursue a claim through the Stryker Broadspire program. Following the manufacturer’s recall of the hip implants in July 2012, thousands of patients came forward to file Stryker lawsuits against the company, alleging that they experienced pain, swelling, and early device failure. In many cases, patients were required to undergo revision surgeries to correct health complications related to the recalled Stryker hip implants.

Stryker Brings Broadspire Services into Litigation
Stryker previously hired a third party, Broadspire Services, to handle claims related to the Stryker lawsuits. According to Broadspire’s corporate website, it is responsible for increasing employee productivity and managing claims while maintaining costs. Broadspire has one primary mission: to serve as a wall between corporate defendants and plaintiffs who may consider filing lawsuits against the companies.
The manufacturer sent letters to doctors across the U.S., advising them to evaluate their patients for signs of complications and to direct patients to the Broadspire program for information about receiving compensation for their injuries. Stryker stated it would provide financial reimbursement for patients who required revision or removal procedures, additional treatments, and testing after receiving a recalled hip implant.
However, in May 2014, Stryker made the announcement that it was bringing Broadspire into the litigation process, acknowledging that the company would be approaching plaintiffs filing Stryker lawsuits and offering them different types of compensation in exchange for an agreement not to file Stryker lawsuits against the company. Although an immediate settlement may be beneficial for some, these offers may not always be sufficient for those who have suffered from severe or life-threatening complications. It may be difficult to determine the long-term effect that your injury will have on you and your family, and should you decide to accept an offer from Broadspire, you may be permanently barred from seeking additional compensation in the future.
Before you accept an offer, consider seeking legal counsel to determine the best route for you and your loved ones. The American Injury Attorney Group can help determine if obtaining a settlement from Stryker outside of the courtroom is in your best interest. Although Stryker’s website states that the company will cover “necessary procedures” relating to injuries sustained by the hip implants, the manufacturer does not go into detail regarding what it considers to be a necessary procedure. For this reason, it is important to consult with an attorney to determine the best course of action for your claim.
