US Drug Watchdog Urges All Recalled DePuy ASR Hip Implant Recipients To Get Identified Now Because Once The National Lawsuit Is Over Good Luck With Compensation

Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog says, "The DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant was recalled in August of 2010, because of a high failure rate in this metal-on-metal hip implant device. There are about 40,000 DePuy ASR recipients in the United States, and what has us horrified is of that group, only about 3300 individual DePuy ASR hip implant recipients have been identified by the federal court in Ohio, that is handling the litigation for this recalled hip implant. At this point, we do not care if a recipient's DePuy ASR hip implant has failed, or not, we think it is vital to get every recipient identified by the federal court in Ohio, and we can suggest national caliber attorneys, for every recipient. Our biggest fear is once the federal litigation involving the DePuy ASR is over, and the individuals signed up get their settlement, it gets much more difficult for new victims of a DePuy ASR failure to get anything." 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, "Many US citizens who received a DePuy ASR hip implant were sent a letter by the device maker offering to pay the insurance co-pay. What an incredible insult! We say, if you received a recalled ASR DePuy hip implant, even if it has not yet failed, you are probably owed much more than a insurance co-pay, and we will try to help you find the best possible law firm to help you. Please call us anytime at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

We believe the number of DePuy ASR recipients that get identified to the federal court in Ohio should be closer to at least 20,000, so we are going to pull out all of the stops to make certain that is what happens

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Our recalled DePuy ASR hip implant victim identification initiative is one of the most complicated campaigns we have ever been involved with, because many victims simply do not want to go through a painful hip implant replacement surgery, also called revision surgery, so the hip implant recipient, with the failed hip implant does not complain. We believe this is the case with the DePuy ASR, where out of about 40,000 US recipients, only about 3300 individuals have been identified. We believe the number of DePuy ASR recipients that get identified to the federal court in Ohio should be closer to at least 20,000, so we are going to pull out all of the stops to make certain that is what happens." The US Drug Watchdog is urging all DePuy ASR recipients to call them, so the group can explain everything they know about metal-on-metal hip implant failures, the DePuy ASR hip implant failures, and the group can recommend actual national caliber litigation law firms, that are both competent, articulate, and passionate about the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant. The US Drug Watchdog's biggest fear is the DePuy ASR litigation will come to an end, a final sign up date will come, and go, and tens of thousands of DePuy ASR recipients will get left holding the bag, with little to no recourse, if their DePuy ASR hip implant fails in a few years, after the actual settlement.

Important Note:The US Drug Watchdog says, "We have recently learned that orthopedic surgeons, and or hospitals have been unwilling to provide a failed metal-on-metal hip implant, to a patient, who has gone through hip implant replacement surgery, also called revision surgery. If you have a metal-on-metal hip implant, that has failed, and you are about to have a revision surgery to replace the failed hip implant-tell the doctor, and the hospital, you want the failed device. Not only is the failed metal-on-metal hip implant your's, it also could be important evidence for your lawyers. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
