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.
