We would caution potential claimants who are pursuing Broadspire Stryker claims. They should not agree to any settlement, or sign away any of their legal rights, without first consulting with an attorney.
New York, NY (PRWEB) January 07, 2013
The nationwide law firm of Bernstein Liebhard LLP is advising individuals impacted by last year’s Stryker hip recall to proceed carefully should they choose to engage in the recently announced Stryker Broadspire claims program. According to a notice Stryker recently posted on its website, Broadspire Services, Inc., a third-party claims administrator, has been tapped to work directly with patients to manage medical claims and address out-of-pocket costs relating to Stryker’s July 2012 recall of Rejuvenate and ABG II modular necks stems.*
Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices, has extensive experience dealing with the Broadspire claims process. Broadspire was also engaged by Johnson & Johnson to handle claims stemming from the August 2012 DePuy ASR hip implant recall.** The firm is currently representing hundreds of clients who have filed claims in the federal DePuy ASR hip implant litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio.
“We would caution potential claimants who are pursuing Broadspire Stryker claims. They should not agree to any settlement, or sign away any of their legal rights, without first consulting with an attorney,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP. The Firm continues to investigate Stryker hip recall lawsuits on behalf of individuals who allegedly experienced complications related to these devices.
Stryker Rejuvenate Recall
The Stryker Rejuvenate recall was announced after data indicated the components were vulnerable to fretting and corrosion at the modular-neck junction. According to the Stryker hip recall notice, patients with the Rejuvenate or AGB II hip implant components may develop adverse local tissue reactions that could manifest with symptoms of pain and/or swelling. Some 20,000 of the affected implants had been sold prior to the recall, the company said.**
On September 19, 2012, Plaintiffs in Stryker hip recall lawsuits petitioned the New Jersey Supreme Court to establish a Multicounty Litigation in Bergen County Superior Court for all state claims filed in New Jersey. Plaintiffs assert, among other things, that such a consolidation is warranted because the Stryker litigation will likely involve a large number of parties, as well as recurrent issues of law and fact associated with a single product.***
Individuals who have endured hip implant failures, metal poisoning, pain, or revision surgery allegedly due to the Rejuvenate and ABG II modular neck-stems may be entitled to file a Stryker hip recall lawsuit seeking compensation for their medical care, pain and suffering, and other damages. Bernstein Liebhard LLP is offering free lawsuit consultations to anyone affected by the Stryker hip recall, including individuals seeking evaluation of a Stryker Broadspire claim. A wealth of information regarding the Stryker Rejuvenate recall is available at the firm’s Stryker hip recall lawsuit website. Free case evaluations can be obtained by calling 877-779-1414.
