The US Drug Watchdog is now calling their defective, or failed metal-on-metal hip implant compensation, and representation initiative their most vital medical device victims campaign ever-because 500,000 US citizens are involved. The group is urging all US recipients of a metal on metal hip implant to start getting blood tests to see if they have elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in their blood. The US Drug Watchdog is urging any US metal on metal hip implant recipient to call them for the names of the best law firms if their blood test shows elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium. The US Drug Watchdog says, "According to the New York Times, there are 500,000 US citizens with metal on metal hip implants, and the article indicates a possible failure rate of 50%. Our goal is to identify at least 250,000 plus US recipients of metal on metal hip implants in order to the get them to the best possible law firms, because we will not stand by as hundreds of thousands of US citizens get left on the curb holding the bag for a problem that should not be their's." All US metal on metal hip implant recipients are encouraged to call the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-646 for additional information, or help. http://USDrugWatchdog.com

The US Drug Watchdog says, “One of the biggest problems we have with respect to our failed medical device or recalled drug initiative work is the average US consumer never hears about a drug recall or failures involving medical devices like metal-on-metal hip implants. If you have a friend, or loved one who is a recipient of a metal-on metal hip implant please share this press release with them. We want to make certain these metal-on-metal hip implant victims get to the best possible attorneys, to insure they get the best possible compensation for their ordeal.” http://USDrugWatchdog.com
