MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pritzker Olsen attorneys Fred Pritzker and David Szerlag are warning hip replacement patients that contacting the Stryker “Patient Care Line” could result in the loss of legal rights. Stryker Orthopaedics recalled its Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck hip stems in June of 2012. Now the company is asking doctors to send letters to patients about expanded testing related to that recall. The letters, written by Stryker, urge patients to contact the Stryker Patient Care Line.
“Broadspire is working for Stryker, not patients, and may ask patients to sign away legal rights. Patients should not sign anything without contacting an attorney who is handling these cases first.”
“When patients call the Stryker Patient Care Line, they will be put in contact with Broadspire Services, Inc.,” said Pritzker, who is representing dozens of people with bad hip claims against Stryker (see below). “Broadspire is working for Stryker, not patients, and may ask patients to sign away legal rights. Patients should not sign anything without contacting an attorney who is handling these cases first.”
Broadspire was hired to manage requests for reimbursement of costs relating to the recall of the Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck hip stems. These reimbursements do not include amounts for pain and suffering, emotional distress, disability and other damages, according to Pritzker. “Patients need to contact an attorney to help them get full and fair compensation,” said Pritzker, who can be contacted for a free consultation at 1-888-377-8900 (toll free).
