we believe the number of recalled DePuy ASR, and DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients need to go up well over 100,000. How do you compensate a US citizen, who received a metal-on-metal hip implant, who is now crippled?

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We have a huge fear for the recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, and or the recipients of the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant; not enough people have been identified by the federal courts handling these cases. Between the recalled DePuy ASR, and the DePuy Pinnacle we have about 180,000 US recipients. However, only about 7000 individuals have been identified by the federal courts handling these cases thus far-that we know of. To insure no DePuy ASR hip implant recipient, or no DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipient gets left on the curb, holding the bag for a problem they did not create, we believe the number of recalled DePuy ASR, and DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients need to go up well over 100,000. How do you compensate a US citizen, who received a metal-on-metal hip implant, who is now crippled?" The DePuy ASR was recalled in August of 2010 because of a very high failure rate, and the DePuy Pinnacle is now the subject of a national class action because of failure rate issues. The group says, " The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the recalled DePuy ASR, or a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466, before time runs out to get compensated." http://USDrugWatchdog.com
The US Drug Watchdog says," Symptoms of the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, or the DePuy Pinnacle failure include, pain in the hip region, problems while walking, or the inability to walk, swelling of the hip implant area, general discomfort, lack of flexibility, elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the hip implant recipients blood stream." The US Drug Watchdog now believes a simple blood test that focuses in on cobalt, or chromium levels might be the easiest way to see if a metal on metal hip implant has failed. The DePuy ASR, and the DePuy Pinnacle are both metal on metal hip implants. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
The US Drug Watchdog is the premier pharmaceutical, and medical device watchdog in the United States. The group says, "We want to make certain all DePuy ASR hip implant recipients, and all DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients get to attorneys that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients. We do not want any recipient of a recalled DePuy ASR, or a DePuy Pinnacle sitting on the curb, for a disaster that was not their doing."
