US Drug Watchdog Now Offers to Help All Recipients of the DePuy ASR & DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant to Get to the Best Possible Attorneys Because Compensation is Vital

Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Our current number one priority is to identify every recipient of the recalled DePuy ASR metal-on-metal and/or the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, that are both named in national class action lawsuits, because we do not want these hip implant recipients missing out on what could be a huge settlement, and significant compensation. Our biggest fear is that--if the recalled DePuy ASR, or the DePuy Pinnacle recipients miss out on a settlement now, they could be up the creek down the road. For this reason, 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 DePuy ASR or DePuy Pinnacle hip implant." According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "Until a recent sharp decline, all-metal implants accounted for nearly one-third of the estimated 250,000 hip replacements performed each year in the United States. Some 500,000 patients have received an all-metal replacement hip." The US Drug Watchdog says, "We firmly believe we have one hundred fifty thousand plus DePuy Pinnacle or DePuy ASR hip implant recipients in the US and, 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 help, that includes the best possible attorneys."

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Because of the high failure rate associated with the DePuy ASR and DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, we believe it is vital we identify all US recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant and the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant that is now subject to a national class action lawsuit over the issue of failures. These metal-on-metal artificial hips were surgically implanted on over one hundred and fifty thousand US citizens between 2005 and early 2010, and the courts so far have only identified about 4000 individuals. We need to get every recipient identified, and we will offer suggestions to the hip implant recipients as to the highest national caliber law firms, to advance their claim." Symptoms of a recalled DePuy ASR or DePuy Pinnacle 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.
