Nothing is more important to us than trying to get them some meaningful help in the form of legal representation, with the focus being compensation
(PRWEB) March 07, 2012
The US Drug Watchdog says, "It is absolutely vital we get every recalled DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant identified to the best possible attorneys with the focus on compensation. The DePuy ASR hip implant was recalled in August 2010. Because many individuals who received a recalled DePuy ASR hip implant do not want to go through a painful hip replacement surgery, also called revision surgery, they do not complain. Because of this, we are strongly encouraging family members or loved ones of anyone receiving a hip implant between 2005 and early 2010 to ask if it was a ASR DePuy hip implant." According to the New York Times, "There is no data on the number of all-metal hips that have failed prematurely in this country because the outcomes of orthopedic procedures are not formally tracked by the government or private companies. But extrapolating from overseas data and the estimate of metal hip use here, tens of thousands of patients in the United States may have to undergo operations over the next decade." The US Drug Watchdog says, "We fear there are tens of thousands of recalled DePuy ASR hip implant recipients in the US who, 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 them some meaningful help in the form of legal representation with the focus being compensation."
