About Broadspire & Your Hip Implant Claim
Our Sacramento Hip Implant Settlement Lawyers Can Help
When faced with approximately 90,000 potential claims from patients who received recalled ASR and Rejuvenate hip replacement systems, manufacturers DePuy and Stryker hired a third party claims administrator. This company, Broadspire, is primarily responsible for evaluating all incoming claims to determine eligibility for hip replacement settlements.
Broadspire adjusters act in a capacity similar to typical insurance claims adjusters. They review incoming applications to determine whether patients actually received recalled hip implant products and also determine what amount of compensation each patient may be entitled to receive. It is important to remember, in communicating with any Broadspire employee, that they were hired by DePuy and Stryker. They are not on your side and may use anything you say or do against you in evaluating and paying your claim.

Expenses Covered by Broadspire for ASR and Rejuvenate Replacement Systems
Broadspire may cover the following expenses associated with recalled ASR and Rejuvenate hip replacement systems:
- Co-pays for doctor visits
- Tests for chromium or cobalt
- X-rays and MRIs
- Travel expenses to and from medical appointments
- Lodging for medical appointments
- Lost earnings associated with doctor visits or revision surgery
- Rehabilitation therapy
- Other out-of-pocket expenses not covered by insurance
Broadspire will not pay for anything covered by your insurance company, and it will not provide compensation for pain, suffering, or emotional trauma. Broadspire will also not cover injuries that are likely to occur in the future. This means that, if you have experienced no problems and have not undergone revision surgery, you may not have a valid claim in Broadspire’s eyes.
Due to the complexity of these issues, we highly recommend working with a lawyer who can protect your interests. At Kershaw, Cook & Talley, we have considerable experience with hip implant litigation and can help you through the process of filing a claim with Broadspire.
