Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We are now learning, that the maker of the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant has sent out letters to recipients of this possibly defective artificial hip, and they are offering to pay the insurance co-pay to have it replaced? What an amazing slap in the face to anyone now crippled, or living in constant pain with a recalled ASR DePuy hip implant." Recalled ASR DePuy implants were widely used throughout the United States from 2005, until 2010." In the strongest terms possible, the group is encouraging every recipient, or family member of a recalled ASR DePuy hip implant to call them immediately, if the recipient is suffering pain, problems walking, swelling of the hip, or lack of flexibility. The group says, "It has already been well documented that there is an extremely high failure rate for the ASR DePuy hip implants, and we need to get every victim identified as soon as possible, in order to try to get them some help." They Say, "If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant, be please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We think out of desperation, the makers of the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant have been sending letters to the recipients of this potentially defective hip implant, and offering to pay their insurance co-pays for the replacement of this hip implant-what an incredible insult." The group says, "we think recipients of the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant might be owed hundreds of thousands of dollars, or more, and we find this manufacturers letter campaign to be an incredible insult to these hip implant victims. Offering to pay an insurance co-pay-when the victim could be handicapped, or crippled for life?" They say, "we are strongly encouraging family members, or loved ones of anyone receiving a hip implant from 2005, to early 2010, to ask if it was a ASR DePuy hip implant, out of fear the family member may not want to mention discomfort, or serious pain." The group says, "we know there are tens of thousands of US ASR DePuy hip implant victims, and because of age, or not wanting to go through a hip replacement revision surgery again, they say nothing. Nothing is more important to us than trying to get these people identified."

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier private pharmaceutical watchdog in the United States. The group says, "tragically the Internet is loaded with misleading ads about ASR DePuy hip implant compensation, lawsuits, or class actions; unfortunately most of the attorneys, or law firms advertising for help with the ASR DePuy hip implant failures are middlemen marketing law firms-not the actual trial law firms that will prosecute these cases." They say, "we want to make certain all ASR Depuy hip implant victims get to the actual trial law firms, or attorneys, that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients-period-no middleman marketing law firms, or attorneys."

The US Drug Watchdog, and or its parent Americas Watchdog is not a law firm, and this press release is not an attempt to practice law. The group says, "Or efforts in behalf of ASR DePuy hip implant recipients is a very robust attempt to do the right thing for these potential victims. You cripple someone with a defective hip implant, and then you offer to pay an insurance co-pay for the victim? This is an insult, and these victims deserve something much better than this." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
