Hip Recall Patients Advised not to Share Information with DePuy

In the wake of the global hip replacement recall DePuy has hired Broadspire, a claims adjustment company to manage medical claims made by hip recall victims. Patients who have received the recalled ASR hip implant system may be giving up their Federally protected rights to health privacy by cooperating with DePuy and Broadspire.

Most individuals effected by the hip replacement recall have received a letter from their doctor or hospital notifying them of the recall. In this letter DePuy has asked recall victims to grant the company access to private medical information. At one point the corporation even offered physicians a $50 per patient incentive for each complete form received.

This process of attaining sensitive medical information may be putting the legal rights of patients at risk. Broadspire reviews hip recall medical records and often times makes the determination whether or not hip revision surgery will go forward. If you or a loved one received a recalled DePuy ASR hip replacement, it is imperative to speak with a qualified hip recall attorney for a free legal consultation. An experienced attorney practicing product liability law can ensure your rights are protected, you receive the best medical care possible and that you receive the maximum amount of compensation possible.
