US Drug Watchdog Ramps Up Their Efforts to Get Every Recalled DePuy ASR Hip Implant Recipient Identified to the Best Possible Attorneys Because Compensation Matters

Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog is dramatically increasing its efforts to identify every recalled DePuy ASR hip implant recipient to the best possible attorneys because they fear many DePuy ASR hip implant recipients could have a premature failure down the road. Because the DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant was recalled in August of 2010, and a possible settlement could be looming in the not to distant future, the US Drug Watchdog considers it vital to get every recalled DePuy ASR hip implant recipient identified in order to insure they are included in the settlement should their device fail prematurely in the near future. The recalled DePuy ASR hip implant device was used by orthopedic surgeons between 2005 and mid 2010. Because failures are so common, the US Drug Watchdog thinks it is vital all recipients of the DePuy ASR hip implant get identified now and get in line for compensation, even if their device has not yet failed. The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
