US Drug Watchdog Now Calls Its DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant Recipients Failure Initiative Vital With a Focus on the Best Attorneys Compensation And No One Gets Left Behind

Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog says, "There are over 130,000 US citizens, who received the DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implant between 2005 and 2010, and our goal is getting every DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipient identified. Only about nine hundred people have signed up for a class action because their DePuy Pinnacle hip implant has failed. We think the numbers should probably be over one hundred thousand, so we are initiating a very aggressive victims initiative, that includes access to national caliber personal injury attorneys, who thoroughly understand the issues with metal-on-metal hip implants, and the DePuy Pinnacle." According to the New York Times, "Some 500,000 patients have received an all-metal replacement hip." The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you are a recipient, or a loved one is a recipient of a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, that has already failed, or showing symptoms of a failure, or you are concerned about a premature failure, we want to get you identified, and we want to make certain you get to the best possible national caliber personal injury law firms, to ensure you receive the best possible legal advice."

According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "The so-called metal-on-metal hips, in which a device's ball and joint are made of metal, are failing at high rates within a few years instead of lasting 15 years or more

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Over 130,000 DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implants were surgically installed on US citizens. We are calling our DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant initiative one of our most important medical device campaigns ever because of the number of recipients." The DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant device is now the subject of a national class action lawsuit. The focus of the US Drug Watchdog's campaign is getting every recipient of the metal-on-metal DePuy Pinnacle hip implant identified to the best possible attorneys, with goal being compensation, in the event the device has failed, or is in the process of failing. According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, "The so-called metal-on-metal hips, in which a device's ball and joint are made of metal, are failing at high rates within a few years instead of lasting 15 years or more, as artificial joints normally do. The wear of metal parts against each other is generating debris that is damaging tissue and, in some cases, crippling patients." Symptoms of a 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, and elevated levels of cobalt in the recipients blood. The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.com

Note To the US FDA from the US Drug Watchdog, "At what point does the US FDA get around to the hundreds of thousands of US citizens, stuck with a metal on metal hip implant, that could prematurely fail? We have 500,000 US citizens, who have a metal on metal hip implant. Aside from failures, metal on metal hip implants are associated with elevated levels of cobalt, and or chromium in a metal on metal hip implant's blood, and potentially severe side effects from blood poisoning. Why have a US FDA?" http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier medical device, and pharmaceutical watchdog in the United States. The group says, "We want to make certain all DePuy Pinnacle hip implant victims get to the actual trial law firms or attorneys that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients. In the instance of the DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implant we could be talking about 100,000+ potential victims."
