US Drug Watchdog Urgently Steps Up its Efforts To Identify All Recipients of the ASR DePuy Hip Implant & Warns About Class Actions

Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We are dramatically increasing out efforts to identify all recipients of the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant, out of fear only a fraction have been identified. At the same time we are urging all recipients of the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant to call us about the differences between signing up with a national class action, or an MDL, versus perusing their case on an individual basis in state court. We think the differences could be $100,000's of dollars, and we do not want victims of the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant getting short changed. We are also very concerned the national class action, and or MDL taking much longer, than an individual case tried in state court." The recalled ASR DePuy artificial hip implants were surgically implanted on tens of thousands of US citizens between 2005 and early 2010. The ASR DePuy hip implant has been recalled because of a much higher than normal failure rate. Symptoms of a recalled ASR DePuy hip implant failure include pain in the hip region, problems walking, swelling of the hip, or lack of flexibility in the area of the hip. The group says, "If you or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.com

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We have just learned that only a small fraction of recipients of the recalled ASR DePuy hip implant have been identified. In response we are going to dramatically ramp up our efforts to get the word out to all recalled ASR DePuy hip implant victims. At the same time we will increase our efforts attempting to explain the differences between presenting a recalled ASR DePuy hip implant as an individual case in state court, as opposed to a giant national class action, or what they call an MDL." The group says, "If you are already signed up with a law firm related to the ASR DePuy recalled artificial hip implant tragedy, we are urging you to call your attorney, and ask if your case is going to be part of a national class action, an MDL, or if they will prosecute your case individually in state court. If the law firm says class action, please call us immediately, and we will find you, or your loved one a law firm that will prosecute the case on an individual basis in a state court. Nothing is more important to us than trying to get recalled ASR DePuy hip implant victims the best possible help, and we are devoted to the idea of the help being meaningful and significant." The US Drug Watchdog now wants to hear from all recipients of a recalled ASR DePuy hip implant to make certain they get treated in the best possible way.

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier private pharmaceutical and medical device 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."
